Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Chef Jamie's Modern Comforts, by Jamie Gwen and Myles Bader, takes an unusual approach to healthy, low-fat cookery. Each recipe appears in a fairly standard format, using customary ingredients. Then, in an afterword, Gwen lists substitutions that the cook may make to produce a low-fat rendition of the dish. An advantage of this approach is that the home cook may choose among all the substitutions in reducing fat levels. For example, in Sweet Potato Pie, one can leave in the whole eggs but use nonfat milk, and so forth. Gwen notes the effects of some substitutions on the dish's outcome. Recipes are for typical American main courses and desserts: meat loaf, chili, chicken tetrazzini, and pumpkin pie. Nutritional analyses for both standard and low-fat versions run parallel for easy comparison. Mark Knoblauch

I have already made the Blueberry Buckle Cake, Spicy Stir Fry Orange Chicken, Jamie's Hamburgers and the Pineapple upside-down cake and every recipe has turned out just perfectly. I like the nutritional breakdowns and the low-fat tips. It is a great book of comfort food recipes.

I love this book! So many easy to prepare favorites--with lowfat tips, too! Not too many ingredients,which makes the recipes a snap. A great reference for any home cook.

Format: Hardcover
The recipes in this book are great, and tasty (the ones I've tried). But if you're on Weight Watchers, it doesn't give the nutritional content of fiber, only calories, fat, protien, carbohydrates, and cholesterol. It also doesn't have ANY pictures, which is what a beginner-cook like me appreciates (it's nice to compare and see if what I made looks "right")
In all this is a good book; straightforward and easy to follow directions. I just wish it had pictures and fiber content!
