Lobster for Josino

Dazzling doses of flavour combined with appetising injections of creativity, delivered in just the right way to enjoy for days or decades!

Lobster for Josino: Fabulous food for our final days brings the joy of food to many who might otherwise miss out through practical but expert advice and clever, restaurant-quality recipes.

Inspired by a much-loved Sydney chef's final meal request and belief that the sharing of beautiful food is an essential part of life - however much longer that might be - Lobster for Josino introduces dozens of amazing new taste ideas for everyone to enjoy.

Chef and author Peter Morgan-Jones (Don't give me eggs that bounce, It's all about the food and not the fork!) joined with well-known palliative care specialist Professor Rod MacLeod (The Palliative Care Hand Book) to create this world first cookbook that provides advice and tips about food at the end of life as well as more than 100 innovative recipes.

Further expertise was added by speech pathologist Prudence Ellis - also an author of the two previous cookbooks - and dietitian Jessica Lynch which ensures Lobster for Josino is full of beautiful food and drink, that is also safe and appropriate for various stages including those who enjoy a normal diet, those on modified diets and even those who are at a stage of eating very little or are 'nil by mouth'.

To do this Peter draws on all his restaurant experience to ensure favourite foods and flavours can be presented in a variety of ways such as Vodka and tonic ice blocks, Scotch mouth swabs, Christmas pudding mist and many tasty meals, drinks and modified foods.

The chapters at the start of the book provide carefully researched clinical advice in an easy to read style that address many of the issues that someone facing a life-limited illness or the end of life may experience. A key message is that food is not just about sustenance, but about love and nurture and personal choice.

Food is one of the last areas of choice for a person at the end of life, and although tastes, appetite and capacity may change, there is incredible opportunity to enjoy the comfort and pleasure of favourite foods and drinks using the ideas and recipes in Lobster for Josino.

Lobster for Josino was judged Best Cookbook of the Year for Australia, and best Seniors Cookbook for Australia in the 2019 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.

'...beautiful food, human contact and kindness -these are all part of the recipe of life. It's what I would wish for at the end of my life and wish it could be so for everyone.'- Maggie Beer 'Food should give pleasure and comfort no matter the stage of life.' - Foreword by Maggie Beer

'Food is the vehicle to express our love for one another. Lobster for Josino is the road to giving our loved ones the bon voyage they deserve.' - Sean Connolly

'This is an excellent book that is so needed. As a scientist who writes about healthy eating, who is passionate about good food and is a board member of the Maggie Beer Foundation, I believe the guidance in this book will enormously benefit patients so that their quality of life is greatly enhanced.' - Professor Ralph Martins AO, Foundation Chair in Ageing and Alzheimer's disease, Edith Cowan University

'HammondCare should be applauded for creating another wonderfully practical tool to improve quality of life through the joy of food for our most vulnerable. This book aligns perfectly with The Lantern Project's values and is a beacon for anyone caring for those in palliative care.' - Cherie Hugo, Founder, The Lantern Project

'As we care for people in our palliative services in hospital or in the community, we often observe that it is the seemingly small but highly personal aspects of choice that bring great joy and comfort. Food is one such choice and this book gives so many delicious ideas and options, no matter how long we have.' - Stewart James, General Manager, HammondCare Health and Hospitals

'Well done Peter and your co-authors. I love this concept!
