Why write a book featuring only soft recipes?
The story behind SOFT is very simple:
In 2020 my dentist told me I needed to have my wisdom teeth extracted. I wasn’t pleased to hear that I would not be able to chew for at least a week after my surgery.
The thing is, 2020 was not the time to take away one of my greatest sources of joy! I couldn’t imagine a week of eating the same boring soft foods. I need variety! I need flavour! Saltiness, Acidity, Umami, Fattiness, Sweetness, Bitterness, Spice… I wasn’t about to give up on my best friends in the kitchen just because I had a couple of holes in my face where my teeth used to be. No way!
I decided it was finally time to bite the bullet and invest in the Vitamix I had been eyeing. I quickly started brainstorming how I could still bring variety and fun into my week without turning to any of my regular recipes.
What this led to was a crazy week of cooking, blending, testing, photographing, and writing . Meanwhile my husband kept insisting that I go back to sleep and focus on my recovery… What does he know?
The result is a book focused on simple, varied, nutritious and (of course!) irresistibly delicious recipes that are exclusively soft and smooth to make your life simpler when you can’t chew.
Not being able to chew can really suck
You’re tired, you’re grumpy, your face hurts.
All you can think of to eat is ice-cream but in the back of your mind you know that it’s probably a good idea to have a vegetable or two at some stage in the next two weeks #balance.
On top of all of that, spending time in the kitchen while recovering is exhausting and is getting in the way of your busy Netflix schedule.
I wrote the book that I wish I'd been able to buy back then
Millions of people get their wisdom teeth removed each year and yet I was unable to find a clear and simple guide of recipes that could keep me smiling during my recovery.
I knew that if I didn’t do anything about it then I was going to be at severe risk of developing hangriness – and in case you’ve completely missed the point of this website so far – that is never a risk that I am willing to take!
Having been developing recipes and blogging now for 5-years as well as having worked in professional kitchens, I figured I was in a good place to create something that could at the very least fill the spot until more qualified people start sharing their ‘no-chew’ recipes and guides.
Most importantly, I care about nourishing myself and others with flavourful food. Food brings comfort as well as nutrition and that comfort is even more important when you can’t chew!
