The Kitchen

Roblé Ali has quickly become one of the most recognizable chefs and one of the very few young African-Americans in the culinary world with national notoriety. The influential and charismatic chef has provided his services to some of today’s most notable individuals including President Obama, Leonardo DiCaprio, John Legend, Jack Nicholson, Michael Jackson, Vanessa Williams, the Olsen Twins and Rhianna to name a few.

People are losing their taste and smell to covid-19. Now there’s a cookbook to help.

On a Sunday afternoon last March, Gillian Dixon was cooking roast beef for lunch, which would normally fill her home in the United Kingdom with a distinct savory scent.

That day, though, something was amiss: “I suddenly thought, ‘I can’t smell the beef,’ ” Dixon, 53, recalled.

Her concern mounted when she took a bite of the roast and couldn’t taste it.

Back then, Dixon was unaware that she was experiencing a symptom of covid-19, and that she would become a covid “long-hauler,” with her sense of taste and smell disappearing for nearly a full year because of the disease caused by the coronavirus.

Ryan Riley is a British chef who has spent the past several months concocting an array of science-based recipes to help people like Dixon enjoy food even though their sense of smell and taste is compromised.

He co-wrote the cookbook “Taste & Flavour,” which has recipes that elevate flavor combinations, textures and other sensory elements that might stimulate a long-hauler’s dulled senses.

“It’s all about adding extra sensory excitement into your food,” said Kimberley Duke, a fellow chef and Riley’s childhood best friend who co-wrote the cookbook, which is free and downloadable.

With the recipes, they aim, for example, to stimulate the trigeminal nerve — which triggers sensations when eating foods like mint, wasabi and cinnamon.

They also focus on the visuals of each dish: “You can never forget how much we eat with our eyes,” Riley, 27, said.

Consulting with scientists, researchers and patients, they created recipes with texture, bright colors and acidic flavors — such as veggie pineapple tacos, umami biscuits, and baked vanilla oats with cardamom, raspberry and rose syrup.

Many recipes in the book are based on the work of Barry Smith, co-director of the Center for the Study of the Senses at the University of London. Smith and his colleagues research the different ways covid-19 can alter a person’s senses.

Covid-19 can cause three main types of smell and taste dysfunctions, Smith said, including: parosmia, which is a distorted sense of smell anosmia, which is the partial or total loss of smell and phantosmia, which is olfactory hallucination.

About 80 percent of taste depends on our sense of smell, Smith said, which is why covid-19 patients experiencing muted smell also struggle with taste.

Some 65 percent of people who have contracted covid worldwide experience some form of smell or taste disorder, Smith said, adding that 10 percent of those cases are long-term, and 3 percent will probably be permanent. He said people understandably find it frustrating.

“People get very depressed when they lose their sense of smell,” Smith said. “The risks to mental health are great.”

For people struggling with parosmia, there are several common foods that elicit a foul smell and taste, including garlic, onions, eggs, roasted meats, coffee, chocolate and, strangely, toothpaste.

“Instead of being familiar and usually desirable aromas, the smell is disgusting. People have talked about a rotten, decayed smell,” Smith said. “People with parosmia end up resorting to things that are sugary, and they don’t get enough nutrition.”

Those with anosmia, or partial loss of taste and smell, on the other hand, can sometimes taste hints of basic flavors, like salt, lemon and sugar. Cooking with umami-rich elements — like mushrooms, cheeses, and soy sauce — can activate saliva flow while boosting other flavors in a dish, Smith said.

What is the Cookbook Café Platform?

Menu Cycles

Menu cycles typically consist of six-week lunch and one- and two-week breakfast cycles, depending on the age group. By using menu cycles, meals can rotate on a recurring basis, with more popular items at higher circulation, and allow for structured planning and procurement.

We’ve partnered with Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) to produce sample menu cycles. In the reference files below, you can download information including: USDA certification worksheets for each week, nutrient analysis by day, and cycle and example costing information.


At BVSD, breakfast is usually offered as a regular two-week cafeteria service model for K-5, and one-week cycles for K-8, 6-8, and 9-12 age groups as well as a two-week classroom model for K-5. The breakfast menus are based on ready-to-eat foods, some of which BVSD has worked closely with local companies to develop, such as burritos, muffins, and bagels. At BVSD, this type of breakfast menu is most compatible with their demographic and labor model.

We have a handful of scratch-cooked breakfast items in the Recipes database that can be easily incorporated into menu cycles.


Lunch, like breakfast, is offered for all age groups. The cycles are six-week cycles and are based on BVSD’s current menu cycles, with the exception of some custom prepared foods that are not available nationwide.
