How can I cook food in my kitchen with sight loss?
When you have a sight problem or can't see as well as you used to, cooking can seem rather daunting. But don't give up! By adapting how you work in the kitchen and using special equipment, a great deal can be achieved.
There are many changes and adaptations you can make to:
- shopping in supermarkets
- labelling your purchases
- lighting in the kitchen
- colour and contrast
- peeling and chopping techniques
- using gas and electric cookers.
