Cookbook author and inspirational speaker Cory Parsons will be at Nanaimo’s Costco at 2 pm on Saturday, March 26, 2011, to sign copies of his book Cooking With Cory. Throughout his life, Cory Parsons has always had a keen sense of adventure, and a love for food and exotic cuisines. Born in Kitimat, Cory Parsons is now a Vancouver Island resident and calls Nanaimo home. On a fateful day several years ago, Cory suffered a severe diving injury which left him a quadriplegic at the age of 23. Thus began an intense emotional journey that only served to strengthen his already powerful personality. Cory is now an inspirational speaker to elementary school students and people with disabilities. He continues to pursue his love of cooking and lives his life to the fullest in his wheelchair.
With his first book, Cooking with Cory, Parsons shows you that even in the kitchen, the only limits are those you place on yourself. Filled with great recipes for entertaining, Cooking with Cory will inspire you to improve your skills and your confidence in the kitchen. Invite your friends over and impress them with dishes like crispy prosciutto and artichoke salad, coconut chicken in a basil curry sauce, and vanilla balsamic sundae.
Cory Parsons: “Each meal is another opportunity to experience something amazing. Food has the power to influence us on many levels, from the sensations of how something smells, looks, tastes, and feels. Sharing food is my favourite part of entertaining and always brings people together–and then back for seconds!”
