Travels with a One-handed Cook

Mymission2 would like to welcome Jacqui Hynd to the community. Jacqui recently appeared in the mymission2 beat the credit crunch calendar and offered her support to people suffering hardship due to the economic downturn. An amazing effort considering that Jacqui suffered a near fatal stroke in 1995 and couldn’t read, write, talk or walk.  13 years later, there are many things she may never be able to do again. Jacqui has been nothing short of inspirational in her efforts to recover and live a normal life despite still only having the use of one hand.

During the photo shoot for the calendar Jacqui brought along a cook book she has been working on ‘Travels with a One-Handed Cook’. The book is written from her unique perspective and describes her travels before and after the stroke and the influences of her travels on her recipes. Her book aims to simplify cooking and these easy but delicious recipes are perfect for the busy home cook. All recipes were prepared using one-hand which should inspire even the most novice cooks to make an effort in the kitchen!  Below is comic strip drawn by her husband which illustartes her journey over the last thirteen years.

... getting mobile is the first step ...

lose something but gain elsewhere ...

... life is about balance: lose something but gain elsewhere ...

... and really using that gain! maybe with a bit of caution?

“I’ve been inspired to go on line at mymission2 with my books and have published a mission on the site. Check out my mission here. You can also check out my books at the links below:

Travels with a One-Handed Cook as well as

Cheers, Jacq”

To show our appreciation to Jacqui and the inspiration she has been to all of us at mymission2 we have granted her $200 to put towards advertising her cook books. The grant was part of our November awards and more details can be found at our blog.
