In April 2001, Trevis Gleason was a chef on the rise.
Then one day he suffered a stroke-like episode and was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
He lost everything - his job, his marriage, even his perceived persona.
Surveying the ruins of his former life, he saw an opportunity to fulfill a long-postponed dream: he put life in Seattle on hold and moved to west Kerry.
Renting a cottage in `The Town', and tapping into a profound passion for food, he learned his life, loves and even dreams weren't lost - just waiting to be rediscovered.
Trevis surmounts physical setbacks and cultural differences with self-effacing wit, serving up life's lessons and his favourite recipes one tasty chapter after another.
This is a story not of survival, but of living life to the full.
Trevis's inspirational humour in the face of his changed life is sure to have you coming back for seconds.
