 THE AUTHOR SCOOP

If you had to boil your book’s message down to one sentence, what would it be? Good nutrition and great taste don’t have to sit at opposite ends of the table! What are you working on now? I’m working on a second book for people undergoing cancer treatment that will cross reference specific symptoms and cancer types with foods that will bolster the effectiveness and outcome of their treatment. Do you eat your vegetables? I love my veggies. Especially the stud vegetable, broccoli! I even love my dark leafy greens, sautéed in a bath of olive oil and garlic. Tell me something that other people might not know about you. I’m a certified food fondler. Have any good pet stories? Bella is my 4 ½ year old Portuguese Water Dog. She is the ultimate kitchen dog with an amazing nose. Currently, she has a job—every Monday, I bring her to a clinic in San Anselmo where she is a part of the second Canine Cancer Scent Study in the country. A dog’s olfactory senses are 800% more sensitive than humans. A dog can smell cancerous molecules through the breath, even before a scan can diagnose the presence of cancer in the body. Dogs are redefining the “Pet Scan.” She works for treats. Her nose is so sensitive, that if I am making one of my regular dishes, and I forget to add the carrots, she will take her paw and scratch my leg to remind me.

This an excellent book. I bought it for my mother-in-law who has pancreatic cancer. I am a nutritionist and she looked to me for some assistance. My main concern is to just keep her appetite so she keeps eating. I happened upon this book at a book festival and was pleasantly surprised. The recipes were nutritious, not complicated and had aroused all of the senses--she loves the smells and the tastes of everything we make. While she was researching specialized diet books that gave her a list of foods that she should eat, this book brought it all together. It bridged that gap. It also has some wonderful stories inside. It should be given to all cancer patients but then again, I find myself making these recipes for my own family--We love it just as much as she does!!

I have been fortunate enough not to have had cancer, but this book is terrific for anyone who wants to eat well. The format is great and informative. It is a pleasure to read a cookbook that is accessible. When I read it I feel like I am in the kitchen with the author by my side.The beautiful color photographs will entice you to head to your kitchen.I have made several of the recipes and they are delicious and easy to make. Rebecca Katz's pantry ideas are great! One stop at an organic grocer and your pantry will be stocked with healthful ingredients that you can now use for everything you cook. Using this book is an easy way to make your lifestyle more healthful.

One Bite at a Time is a cookbook by Rebecca Katz designed for cancer survivors and cancer patients. Its goal is simple yet all too difficult: to create food that fits within the dietary constraints of cancer survivors, nourishes them, and yet tastes so delicious to their altered taste buds and rebellious systems that they'll want to eat it. This food is also designed to be easy for them and their caregivers to make at home.

Ms. Katz set out on this course because she had family and friends who were diagnosed with cancer, and whom she wanted to help care for. She noted that many patients didn't know how to convert the limited lists of foods they were given into something they'd like, so she put her knowledge as a chef to work creating food they would actually enjoy.

She does more than that, however. She includes simple instructions for using a few basic ingredients to help you balance the flavors of any dish to your liking, so that however your taste buds have been affected, you'll be able to (with a little practice) make food that tastes good to you. She has incredible understanding of and empathy for the particular food and taste problems cancer survivors suffer, and that shines through in this book.

Here's the rub: the recipes in this book are so delicious and flavorful, and so healthy, that I'd recommend EVERYONE go out and buy a copy. That way, not only can you enjoy the benefits of these recipes and the information on flavors, but the next time you find out that a relative, friend, or neighbor has cancer (sadly, an all-too-common occurrence these days), instead of feeling helpless, you'll know exactly what you can do to help a little.

We made a fruit tart from this cookbook that was absolutely awesome.

What a fabulous cookbook! The recipes are so interesting to read and for quantities that allow freezing. The two squash soup was the best thing I've ever eaten that didn't contain chocolate. The food is brilliant spiced. Ms. Katz is a genius at designing food that is both healthy and delicious. My mom died of cancer 12 years ago, and I so wish I had this book then. Now I'm cooking for my health and tastebuds, and sharing this with food with my husband and friends. Several have bought the cookbook for the humor, the pictures, the recipes as well as the info about maintaining high quality nutrition.

I have always been a foodie. Ever since I was a young girl, I've loved to cook and have taken great pride in my discerning palate. Unfortunately, my passion for red meat and rich food had to be redirected after I was diagnosed with breast cancer. While on my quest to learn how to "cook for cancer," I searched high and low for cookbooks that featured food that was delicious, nutritious, easy to prepare, and likely to be embraced by my friends and family. It wasn't until I met chef Rebecca Katz that my search finally ended. As a student of Rebecca's, I was fortunate enough to learn first-hand how to make mouth-watering dishes using healing, nutrient-rich ingredients. Fortunately for those who have not had an opportunity to take classes from Rebecca, you can now benefit from her knowledge, wisdom, and culinary prowess because she has captured the essence of everything I learned in her new book, "One Bite at a Time." If you or anyone you know suffers from cancer--or any illness caused by a compromised immune system--one of the best gifts that you could give yourself or a loved one is "One Bite at a Time."

I'm a health supportive chef and oncology nurse and have been working with people with cancer for over 25 years. It's about time that there is such a beautiful and sensible book on whole foods cooking for those living with and through cancer. Bravo, Rebecca Katz---you've done it!
