This cookbook co-authored by Dr Kenneth Fong (consultant ophthalmologist and retinal surgeon) and Ms Goo Chui Hoong (dietitian and culinary instructor at At 19 Culinary Studio). We are so proud of Ms Goo who teaches healthy cooking classes on request at our culinary studio. This was her first attemp in co-authoring a cookbook with her husband, Dr Fong and it was an effort well worth the praise.

"Food for Your Eyes" is more than a cook book as it also highlights basic facts about common eye diseases, including age related macular degeneration and how food can help prevent or reduce the risk of blindness. The cookcook contains over 50 recipes from breakfast to dinner and desserts, all home-made recipes created, tried and tested by Ms Goo. Recipes are simple and easy to read. Instructions are easy to follow and it shows how eye-healthy ingredients can be incorporated into everyday meals.
