Food Technology – Food For Special Needs

October 13 2017

A second local recipe book/cook book is one titled ‘Food Technology – Food For Special Needs’.

The book appears to be a High School book, we don’t know because it has been a long time since we’ve been in High School and it was a book that was accidentally acquired through a borrow with the possibility it was a gift.

‘Special Needs’ is about health or age and not physical or mental status as recipes have labels such as Lifestyle Choice, Stage of Lifecycle, Low Fat and High Fibre.
