Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This is a celebrity cookbook with a heart-healthy edge. Brief anecdotes by Oprah and recipe prefaces by Daley, her cook, may lure Oprah watchers--not only have they seen her weight loss, now they can taste the foods that presumably helped to make it possible. Others will find her style obvious: "I have thrived on pasta," Oprah confides. "I can eat it every day." Exclamation points abound: "Forget iceberg!" she exhorts in the introduction to salad recipes."Experiment! . . . Delicious!" Fortunately, Daley is a professional chef, trained at the Cal-A-Vie Spa, and her recipes are no mere fluff. Practical advice on preparations that add flavor while reducing fat reflect her spa experience, while suggestions for garnishes add visual interest. The numerous tips stretch the length of the book, too: just 50 recipes are featured in 134 pages. Typical of Daley's approach is the following paean to paella: "In this beautiful dish jet-black mussels, pale gray clams, and vibrant red lobster tails lie on a bed of golden saffron rice, surrounded by chopped tomato and green peas, its flavor enhanced by the addition of squid rings and an assortment of peppers." Photos not seen by PW. 400,000 first printing; advertising.

From Library Journal

A cookbook from Oprah Winfrey's personal chef would no doubt be popular no matter what (proved here by the 200,000-copy first printing), but Daley in fact offers a number of zesty and creative recipes. Her professional background includes experience as a spa chef, and most of her dishes are sophisticated and elegant presentations-although there are also recipes for Un-Fried French Fries and Un-Fried Chicken. Many are highly spiced as well, substituting assertive flavor for fat. You'll probably need multiple copies.

I bought Rosie's book with Andrew Weil (The Healthy Kitchen) and had really good luck with some of the recipes in that book, so I decided to get this one, too. The recipe for "unfried" chicken is worth the cost of the book just by itself!
Some of the other reviewers are critical of the book because the recipes are time-intensive. I really didn't find them to be that much more time consuming than other recipes, but I thought that the quality of the recipes made them worth my time.
I have always had a hard time sticking with healthy eating habits, but I found these recipes to be very satisfying. I'm a HUGE fan of both of Rosie's books!!

The Un-fried chicken recipe alone is worth the cost of the book. Fried chicken has always been one of those things I just don't touch, but this recipe made it possible. Her recipes are beautiful, delicius and low-fat. What more could you want?

I agree with other customers, that these recipes are time consuming, but they are soooooooooo delicious. I used Rosie's book to lose 50 pounds in 5 months. I do wish she would come out with another book with some easier recipes with the great taste that these have. Thanks Rosie!

Their are some really good recipes in here. Yes some of them take a while to prepare and cook, but the finished product is worth it. I also really liked that they were healthy foods.

Format: Hardcover
Rosie Daley is probably as well known for serving as "Oprah's Chef" as for her own work. In an Introduction, Oprah Winfrey notes (page xi): "I once believed that eating healthy meant eating food that was missing something--TASTE." Then, at a spa where she went, she experienced the meals of Rosie Daley. Of that experience, Winfrey said (page xi): "This new way of eating very low fat, low sugar, low salt. . .has made such a difference in my life."

This short work includes recipes for soups, salads, pasta, entrees, vegetables, and desserts. One of the things that I really like seeing is no salt among the ingredients and low fat ingredients as part of recipes. For instance, on page 69, she provides her recipe for pizza sauce. No salt, no sugar. Just tomato paste, tomato puree, and, for some zest, red paper flakes, oregano, basil, and thyme. On pages 86-87, there is an interesting recipe for Peppered Tuna Nicoise. Lots of ingredients--including wasabi and ginger for some kick. However, instructions are pretty straightforward.

Finally, an interesting potato dish--Roasted Mustard Potatoes. As with the items already mentioned, a little spiciness is included, with chili powder and cayenne pepper. Pretty easy to make and a potato dish with a bit of pizzazz.

The main problem for me is that there are so few recipes. However, what is included has some interesting and fairly easy to make items.

Format: Paperback
I 100% agree with Nicholas. You are not getting a bargain with this book, just wish I'd read reviews before hand. I would really give it a negative 5 stars if that were possible. Seriously. I ordered it from ebay hoping to get some really good recipes since she is after all a professional chef & we're eating healthy. I've cooked all my life, country cooking...so good but not so healthy, and also very healthy recipes from sites like bhg.com and eatingwell.com. I made the potatoes au gratin and they were absolutely the worst I'd ever tasted, had an overwhelming sweet taste maybe from the paprika, not sure. We couldn't even finish them & I always use leftovers. I threw them out. The un-fried chicken was actually pretty good, but we didn't get excited about it. So I thought I'd try the bran muffins last night. I thought the 1 T. ginger sounded too much, but I went with it. They were moist enough, but the bitterness was more than overwhelming. You know how bad some medicines taste, like an aspirin if you chew it up. That's how bad it was. It said it went well with apple butter. Ok, I didn't want to throw them out, so this morning I decided to drown it with apple butter thinking it might help. Sadly, it didn't. I don't like to waste things, but I threw them out also. So disappointing. No other recipes I've ever tried have compared to these. I never take the time to submit reviews, but this was deserving because it gets the WORST rating of any cookbook, any recipes I've ever tried in my whole entire 40 years of cooking! !

The recipes I tried were the unfried french fries, unfried crabcakes, and unfried chicken. All were rather bland and needed modifications. The yogurt idea with the unfried chicken was good but it turned out a bit dry and somewhat bland. Maybe less oven time and more spices. The french fries were good but needed a bit more seasoning. The crab cakes needed more egg in order to hold together and were quite dry and tasteless. I like the healthy ideas behind the recipes but they just need more flavor. I probably won't try many more of the recipes given how the first three I tried turned out.
