It’s a little over a year from when we started, and Fouad and I are proud to say that Life-Changing Food, the new cookbook from Quirky Cooking, is finally here! During this period of time, we’ve been blown away by the support we’ve received from the Quirky Cooking community. Quirkies from all over showed up in force to support us in making our book a reality by pre-ordering their copies, so a big thank you to you all!

When we set out to write Life-Changing Food, we wanted it to be a world class cookbook that represented the bounty and abundance of whole food cooking. We wanted to share our stories and inspire readers to make a healthy change with beautiful recipes and stunning photography. Life-Changing Food does all that, and more. We couldn’t be happier with it.

Life-Changing Food is a collection of 128 whole food, gluten-free recipes, and the majority of recipes are presented with Thermomix® methods as well as conventional methods. The book is for everyone, from novices to experienced cooks. The focus is on flavour and nutrition, so the recipes are easy to follow but deliver beautiful dishes that offer nourishment and healing. If you’re just starting out with gluten-free/whole food cooking, or if you’ve been eating this way for a while, Life-Changing Food will help you progress even further on your journey to wellness.

    Hi Jo
    I would like to see the recipe index but there is nowhere to enter my email address on the order page.
    Could you send it to me please.
    The book looks great but I want to check if there aret many ingredients I won’t be able to get like cassava and purple sweet potato ( I can substitute kumara) as I have very limited ingredient availability in my area
    Thanks,
    Louise Fressard

    I received mine yesterday and have carried it with me to my naturopath’s last night (so she could look at it while I was getting acupuncture, her copy hadn’t arrived) and at work today so I could look at it over lunch. I’m so excited! I loved your other book as well but this one is so perfect with the “grain free” recipes. I can’t wait to try many many recipes! Thank you to you and Fouad for putting this together.
    It’s got great recipes but it’s also Gorgeous!!! Even hubby commented on what a beautiful (and heavy) book it was (he didn’t have a chance to look at it a lot yet, I’m hogging it!!!). I’ve got broth on already tonight! Yay! Thank you!!!!!

    HI there, i am eagerly awaiting to receive my book. do we have a rough turn-around time for deliveries to Melbourne? I only ordered a week ago so i’m not complaining (just impatient). In the meantime, i’ll learn some patience and be envious of everyone else’s delicious creations that i see on facebook.

    Hi Jo and Fouad.
    Just received my copy of your beautiful book. Have already made the shortbread biscuits. Best biscuits I’ve had since going gluten free. Big hit at work including with all the gluten eaters. Can’t wait to try the breads.
    Thank you very much

    Hi Jo

    I placed an order way back last year for two copies of your new book,
    Life Changing Food and have not received them yet. Is there any way I can track when they will arrive.

    Many thanks
    Margie

      Hi Alison,

      Thanks for your question. At the moment there is only the printed version of the book available, and at this stage we aren’t planning to release it in electronic format. We appreciate your support!!

    I got my book this week from Go Vita Cairns, couldn’t make it to the signing 🙁

    What a beautiful book – Butter Chicken amazing and Sweet Potato Rosti so good the kids loved them.

    I have so many pages flagged – love it.

    Great work Jo and Fouad!
