Vegan chilli

It has always been my dream to be a chef but due to my disability, I have been presented with a few obstacles that stand between me and achieving this dream. In the Shaky Cookbook I have shared some of the tricks I use in the kitchen to help me cook, as well as some of my favourite meals and hopefully, I can inspire people, whether they share my disability or just love good food, to go and cook up a storm.
