Chef Tips

Everyone should own a microplane grater. It is one of the most indispensable kitchen tools. Citrus zest adds so much mellow flavor to simple foods like this, and a microplane makes easy work of zesting.

If on a neutropenic diet, check with the physician if it’s ok to eat live yogurt. Yogurt is full of beneficial bacteria, but they’re bacteria nonetheless.  Some physicians recommend against exposure to even the beneficial bacteria, if the immune system has been compromised by chemo. Ask.
