Event to Feature 'Kidney-Friendly' Recipes
HOUSTON, Dec. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Celebrity chef Katie Lee Joel and Shire Pharmaceuticals (Nasdaq: SHPGY), the global biopharmaceutical company, today announced that Katie will be conducting a free cooking demonstration at the Doubletree Hotel Houston Downtown from 1-3 PM tomorrow, Saturday, December 8th, for local patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and their families.
During the demonstration, Katie will demonstrate to patients and their family members how to prepare recipes from Shire's 2007 edition of the Kidney Friendly Comfort Foods cookbook. Additionally, attendees will be able to sample some of Katie's recipes, as well as receive a complimentary copy of the new cookbook, which will be available for free after the event, by visiting http://www.FOSRENOL.com or by calling (866) 896-6152.
Kidney disease is an issue close to Katie's heart because her grandfather was a dialysis patient for several years. Although the family was worried about his health, her grandfather was more concerned with the restrictions the condition put on his diet. To help keep him healthy and happy, Katie and her grandmother adapted many of their family's traditional recipes so that Katie's grandfather and the rest of the family could still eat the meals that they loved.
"I know how difficult managing kidney disease can be, which is why I
was so excited to contribute my recipes to Shire's second volume of the
Kidney Friendly Comfort Foods cookbook," said Katie. "It's especially
important for CKD patients to have holiday recipes that meet their dietary
needs, so that they don't feel left out
