The Caregiver's Companion by Chef Dave Wells

About The Book

This book is concerned foremost with giving care to those in need, through food and love.

Author Dave Wells writes about his personal experience with providing care for others, most notably his mother who survived cancer. Already a superbly trained chef, Wells' mother's illness redirected his focus toward creating the optimal nutrition, environment, and even thought processes for someone undergoing chemotherapy. Through recipes and anecdotes, Wells explains how to use food as medicine and how to harness the power of self-will, and unconditional love.

With this book, Wells gives you the opportunity to nurture loved ones through his recipes and your own loving devotion.
