Amy Symington’s Long Table Cookbook
Chef and nutritionist Amy Symington can add author to her long list of accomplishments, with the publication of The Long Table Cookbook: Plant-based Recipe for Optimal Health.
The cookbook is part of a larger research project, which is a collaboration between Symington and the GBC CHCA (the culinary management nutrition program H119 specifically), Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) via the College and Community Social Innovation Fund (CCSIF), Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto (GCGT). Symington is donating all author royalties from the cookbook towards funding the social, emotional and nutritional programming at GCGT.
The project is made of three components:
- Cancer Nutrition Guide entitled: A Community Guide to Cancer Nutrition (found here: https://gildasclubtoronto.org/cancer_nutrition-2/ along with some stop animation recipes from the cookbook)
- Research conducted at Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto in relation to Symington’s nutrition programming (explained in poster and report currently being written for publication)
- The Cookbook entitled The Long Table Cookbook: Plant-based recipe for optimal health – based on the Not-Just-Supper club program we run at Gilda’s where the members sit, eat and share nutrient dense food at long tables. All author proceeds go to fund our important cancer support programming.
