ICU Charity Recipe Book - Intensive Food


itu cookbookDavid Cameron, Michael Caines and Rick Stein are just some of the big names who have provided recipes for ‘Intensive Food’, a charity cookbook in aid of the RD&E’s Intensive Care Unit Trust Fund.


The book has been compiled by the ICU team, led by Consultant Nurse Carole Boulanger and ICU Matron Marie Toghill.


The recipe book contains a collection of over 300 recipes from ICU staff, friends and special celebrity guests. Proceeds from sales of the book will go towards providing extra comfort for patients and their relatives during their stay on the unit.


The book covers range of sweet and savoury recipes, each tied together with a chapter introduction from ICU Consultant Dr Roland Black who is famous amongst the team for waxing lyrical on almost any topic.


Highlights include a chapter from friends of the unit including a Christmas Pudding recipe from RD&E Chief Executive Angela Pedder and a Pigeon recipe from Chief Nurse/Chief Operating Officer Em Wilkinson-Brice, as well as the celebrity chapter, with high profile chefs such as Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall , Rick Stein, Nathan Outlaw, Dolton Lodge, the Tanner brothers and more each supplying a recipe.


A special final chapter is dedicated to one of our former patients Rolf Clifton, who spent over 50 days as a patient on ICU with Guillain Barre syndrome earlier this year.
