About the Author

Robin Ellis is known worldwide for his role as Captain Ross Poldark in the classic BBC series. He learned to cook from his mother, who suffered from Type 1 diabetes. He lives in south-west France.

More About the Author

Robin Ellis is a British actor best known for playing the leading role in the BBC/Masterpiece Theater series, Poldark, based on the novels of Winston Graham. He appeared in many other classic TV series and had a long career in British theatre, including a stint with the Royal Shakespeare Company. His most recent role was in the original Swedish version of the detective series, Wallander. He also starred in the Merchant Ivory film, The Europeans and can been seen in Fawlty Towers, The Good Soldier and Elizabeth R. Photos: http://www.flickr.com/photos/robinellis/

He lives in Southwestern France with his American wife and a menagerie of animals. His life-long passion for cooking plus a diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes led to writing his first cook book, Delicious Dishes for Diabetics: Eating Well with Type 2 Diabetes.

Robin's mother suffered with Type 1 Diabetes all her life and died of a sudden heart attack linked to her condition. So when Robin received his diagnosis in his mid-fifties, he took it seriously. By adjusting his cooking, he managed to control his blood sugar, keeping it in the "normal" range, for six years. (He also took up walking for exercise.) His passion for Mediterranean cuisine, generally acknowledged to be one of the healthiest ways of eating, and his wry humor inform his cookbook--which is illustrated with watercolors of his home in France. He blogs regularly on food, cooking and French rural life at http://robin-ellis.net/.

I bought it as a gift for a diabetic friend, but I liked it so much I kept it for myself.

I know this cookbook is geared toward people wanting to eat healthier--especially diabetics--but I like it just because it has so many recipes for great-tasting dishes. And because it was written by Robin Ellis--the dashing Ross Poldark in the Masterpiece Theatre series. Try the chicken with capers in lemony sauce with baked sweet potato with fillings.

Although aimed at diabetics, this book of food is fun and not a trace of denial of pleasure. It is beautifully illustrated by Hope James with delightful pictures of the house where Robin Ellis lives. I have already tried several of the recipes- Donald's cold cucumber soup, Tonno e Fagioli a wonderful tuna salad, the baked mackerel fillets are great as is the Blackened Salmon with Orange Yogurt Sauce. I can't wait to try out Ismail's Spicy Chicken Curry or the Lamb Tagine. There are really useful ideas for salad dressings and sauces. Plus,and this is a big plus, you feel like you are getting to know the man himself. His enthusiasm for good food is transmitted throughout the book like the word Brighton in a stick of Brighton Rock ! :) If you have a day when you just don't know what to cook, you can open this book and find something to inspire you and get you cooking with pleasure.

Well balanced recipes, simply, precisely and informerly explained...nice pictures too.
I have an organic veg garden and it's inspiring to read Robin's recipes.
He shows how to get your meat and vegetables to the table without fuss. Retaining freshness, colour and flavour.
It's a great read and you'll love Robin's enthusiasm for the simple delight of cooking.

I bought this book when it came out in England not just because I have long admired the writer and not just for Poldark but his other work.
This cook book is full of lovely things to cook and enjoy, not just for diabetic's, but all who like good tasting food,and like a smile and giggle while doing it.My husband is a diabetic 1 insulin taker but my son & I are not,but we all eat the same food, and this book has helped to widen the choice's.
The beautiful sketches are so delightful.So fill your kitchen with some south of France sunshine and enjoy.

The recipes really are excellent. Special enough to serve company. However, diabetics need clear information on carbs, fats, etc. these are not provided. Perhaps this is only true of the kindle version, but it is a shame.

We just sent a recently-diagnosed diabetic friend in Florida (who loves to cook) this cookbook, and here was her response: "Thank you so much for the great cookbook. It opens up a whole new area of cooking for my husband and me. I had almost lost interest in conjuring up anything suitable for my diabetes, as everything was so plain and boring."
