Welcome to Gourmet Spoonie!

My name is Katz. Daan Katz. I love food. I love cooking.

I love life.

I also happen to be a wheelchair user and a Spoonie, so I know from personal experience how hard it can be to take good care of yourself when your pain levels are through the roof and your fatigue is weighing you down like nobody’s business.

That’s why I decided to create this website. To help other Spoonies take back their lives. Because there are ways. They’re not always easy, but they are there.

Let me take you by the hand and show you.

The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach

    When preparing an entire meal seems too daunting a task, you’ve got other options. Order take-out. Expensive, and usually not all that healthy, but it’s an option. Heat up a freezer meal. With some luck, you’ve even got a couple of home-made meals in your freezer. Make a sandwich. Not very nourishing, but at least… Read more

    The pandemic had me staying in voluntary self isolation for a long while, but eventually I got completely fed up with not being able to do my own shopping.

  • Slow Cooker Rhubarb Crumble

    July 20, 2020 by

    I’m a fan of crumbles. Apple crumble is my go-to, as apples are always readily available here, and it’s a great way to use up those apples I was never going to eat raw anyway. I’m also a fan of rhubarb, but sadly rhubarb is only available during the early days of summer. And even… Read more

  • Schär White Bread

    July 17, 2020 by

    I went to the supermarket the other day, as I really wanted to try this loaf of gluten free bread that was on offer (I’ve never been a big fan of bread, and going gluten free hasn’t helped in that department either.) Though I picked up my groceries at the supermarket the other day, this… Read more

  • How Corona changed my life

    July 16, 2020 by

    It was February. I celebrated my birthday. I found a new apartment. And at the end of the month the first reports about the corona virus reached my ears. I wasn’t particularly worried. After all, it was no worse than a bad flu, eh? So life went on as usual. Well, not quite, as I… Read more

  • Instant Pot Colcannon

    July 15, 2020 by

    Last weekend, on Meal Prep Day, I had chili for lunch. With enough leftover for at least two suppers. I also had potatoes that needed using up. And I had a whole cabbage, so I figured colcannon might be a good idea. Now, I never made – or, in fact, even had – that before,… Read more
