Disability and Cooking
Disabled skier David Croft - A combination of life, karate, cooking and disability
David had always been told by many people to write a book about his life story but was always reluctant to do so for various reasons. In addition to his spinal injury he had had other difficulties in life that made the prospect daunting. However, with a lot of encouragement he decided to combine his life story with a cookbook
'Food for Thought' therefore documents the highs and lows of his life, often in a humorous manner, and has a recipe section at the back which some of the best chefs in Britain have contributed to. The book shows in the face of much adversity, how David rebuilt his life in a way he never thought possible after his accident.
In a ‘Dinner Party’ section of the book, David highlights the achievements of 10 other sporting tetraplegics, some of whom lead extremely remarkable lives despite being paralysed, with each choosing their ideal guests for a dinner party. The book also educates the hospitality industry about catering for disabled diners.
Ticky Donovan OBE 9th Dan endorsed David’s past and present achievements by writing a foreward for the book, with the celebrity chef Brian Turner CBE doing the same via an afterword. In turn numerous companies supported recipe pages to help David raise further funds for his two chosen charities.
David said about the book ‘I wished to show others that, despite suffering a spinal injury, a good life can still be achieved if you have the right care and support. Likewise, I wanted to highlight the achievements of other sports tetraplegics some of whom lead incredible lives despite being paralysed.’
