Canine Kitchen Capers – A Humorous New Book on Cooking for Dogs


People will do anything for their dogs. But what happens when they cook for them can be absolutely hysterical, according to the new book Canine Kitchen Capers: A Humorous Look At Preparing Food for Dogs (& Spouses). Written by Judy Morgan, a holistic veterinarian who has long championed making homemade dog food, and her husband Hue Grant, a foodie and architect who co-parents nine rescued spaniels with her, the book is full of stories of cooking misadventures, vegetarians willing to cook meat only for their dogs and the occasional starving husband who can’t stop himself from secretly scarfing the dog’s homemade stew.

Morgan says the stories in the book—such as the woman who spent three days canning food for her dog, forgetting her kids and feeding her husband cold cereal–were submitted by readers of her prior book, What’s For Dinner Dexter? Cooking for Your Dog Using Chinese Medicine Theory. Each story is accompanied by a recipe for dog food and a complementary recipe for humans. So Butternut Squash Banana Treats for Dogs is followed by Maple Bacon Pecan Butternut Squash for Humans.

Despite the book’s lighthearted premise Morgan is perfectly serious about encouraging even people who cannot boil water to make their own dog food. However comical their first attempts may be, Morgan says making dog food at home is a great way to be sure that a pet is not eating food waste products, disabled, dead, decayed and diseased meat, sugars, dyes, carcinogenic preservatives and inedible fillers—all things that can be found in processed dog foods.
