Cookery from Bute to Amsterdam: Karen publishes first e-book


A former Bute resident now working as a cookery writer and teacher in the Netherlands has published her first e-book.

‘Love Food, Live Healthy’, available for the Kindle via Amazon, is a collection of recipes used by Karen Vivers to lose more than 40 kilograms after she was diagnosed with a binge eating disorder in 2003, which caused her to lose and gain hundreds of kilograms in weight as a teenager and adult.

Karen, who is originally from Bute, has lived in Amsterdam since 1997, and gave up a career in project management and marketing to pursue a career in food; she set up an award-winning delicatessen in her adopted home in 2000, and now teaches others to cook, gives culinary tours of the city and writes for a number of expat publications in the Netherlands.
