“Kristine Benishek has written a cookbook that fills an important need. The population in the United States is aging, and many older adults will be faced with the need to maintain proper nutrition while their ability to effectively chew food is reduced due to changes in the dentition and muscles that control jaw opening and closing. Developed over the years through trial and error, this book will be a very valuable aid for older adults and those who care for them.”     

Ira B. Lamster, D.D.S., M.M.Sc. Dean Emeritus, Columbia University College of Dental Medicine  Editor of Improving Oral Health for the Elderly: An Interdisciplinary Approach 

“This is a great resource for anyone faced with preparing satisfying and nutritious soft-food meals over an extended period without multiple re-runs. Ms. Benishek’s recipes include the traditional as well as some creative and ethnic variations. Her approach and commentary is warm and down-to-earth. The Simply Soft Food Cookbook is a real gift for those with chewing problems who want to maintain an optimal quality of life.”                                

Suzanne Hughes, MSN, RN Director of Population Health, Summa Health System Associate Editor of CardioSource, the online journal of the American College of Cardiology

“This is an absolutely delicious book! Every recipe can be enjoyed by those who have to eat soft foods as well as the general population. Ms. Benishek has done a thorough and professional job of organizing the material and presenting it for both the person who prepares the meals and the person eating her delicious offerings. Ms. Benishek’s insightful book has taken us into the 21st century where those who still enjoy eating but require soft food now have an excellent cookbook to rely on.”
