I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver at THECOMMENTARY.CA.
We talk now to Cory Parsons. His is an interesting, fascinating, and inspiring story. Mr. Parsons has always had a keen sense of adventure. That however was challenged at the age of 23 when a diving accident left him a quadriplegic. It didn’t kill the spirit of adventure and hope that he embodies today. He’s participated in various sporting competitions, and he’s a sought after speaker, and now the author of a new cookbook, Cooking with Cory: Inspirational Recipes for the Fearless Cook. I see a lot of cookbooks come across my desk and a number of their famous authors have appeared on this program, but Cory’s story begins this cookbook, and grips you as the book unfolds with delicious and easy-looking recipes that anyone can attempt. His advocacy for healthy, sustainable eating can be gleaned from his pages. His love of cooking is felt throughout. Cory Parsons was born in Kitimat and joins me from Nanaimo, BC where he lives. His website is at www.coryparsons.com. Cooking with Cory is published by Whitecap. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Cory Parsons; Good morning, Mr. Parsons.
