David Croft

A combination of life, karate, cooking and disability

  • Prue Leith, author, broadcaster and Great British Menu judge adds her own personal review of Food for Thought.

    'Been reading David Croft’s Food for Thought. Who would have thought that yet another charity compilation of celebrity chef recipes could be anything but dull? In fact David Crofts book is fascinating. The good looking, young, world-at-his-feet Karate champion and pastry chef was about to take part in the 1980 world games when he dived from a rock into too-shallow water and broke his neck, ending up paralysed from the neck down.

    David is still good looking and still a cook at heart. He’s twisted the arms of a galaxy of chefs (Gordon Ramsay, Chris Galvin, Paul Ainsworth, James Martin, et al) for recipes to go with his straight forward and moving story of his life. It all in a good cause, or rather two good causes: Hospitality Action, which helps people in the trade with all sorts of problems, including addiction, and Regain which improves the lives of tetraplegics. Buy one!'

      I read it too and enjoyed the read and the sense of humour throughout and of course the recipes, I know it all to be true and factual as I was with Dave on the day, amazing sense of humour never really stopped even though it was devastating and lifechanging not just for David but for others too.

      Well done and agree you should buy a copy
