This book is written in an unintimidating style and presents clear and concise nutritional information. It features a renewed excitement for cooking recipes that not only look good, and taste good, but have the added bonus of being good for you! Unlike other cookbooks on nutrition, this book highlights the excitement of cooking and removes the stigma typically assoiated with nutritional cooking. A must have for professionals and gourmands alike! This book is instrumental for the new generation of culinary students.

Format: Paperback
This is a terrific book, especially for the cook who wants to know more about healthful cooking techniques. I have applied these techniques to the foods that my family & I enjoy. The book offers a wide range of recipes that are unique, interesting, and fun to prepare. There is a section on nutrition that explains healthful eating in easy-to-understand terms. Also a section on wine with food. I loved this book, it is written in a friendly tone with a great deal of personal insight on food from the authors. Most of all the recipes are superb!

Format: Paperback
I would recommend this book to anyone! It is very easy to understand, clear and very user friendly. The recipes are nothing short of amazing...I still can't believe that they're healthful! :) My friends and family are always blown away when I make something from the book. The cobbler with citrus ice is particularly good!! Don't miss the veal with parmesan coating--that's a dinner for any night of the week that my family loves and really wows guests...if they only knew how easy it is to make. An excellent book for those looking to cook healtfully without "dieting". Fantastic.
