Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Eating Well magazine's senior food editor, Price (Eating Well for a Healthy Heart Cookbook; Eating Well Comfort Foods Made Healthy) takes an encyclopedic approach for this volume with appeal for skilled and novice cooks alike. With chefs from around the globe, Price has created 300 recipes (appetizers, soups, breads, pasta, vegetarian, meats, desserts, etc.) focused on key parameters: preparation time (most under 45 minutes); nutritional value (provided in daily values and calorie counts); reliability (thanks to step-by-step photo instructions); and international flavor (American, Mexican, Italian, Indian, Middle Eastern, Asian). Price's trove of insider tips includes pantry stocking; label reading; selecting and preparing meats and vegetables; cooking grains and rice; grilling; and working with tofu. With repertoire-expanding seasonings, sauces, pizza toppings, salad dressings, spice rubs and quick bread variations, Price shows beginners how to transform basic fare into gourmet meals; her guides to making gnocchi, mussels, sushi, and foolproof omelets will boost confidence. Health-conscious readers will appreciate tasty alternatives to butter, sour cream, sugar, and white flour, but even those committed to richer, saltier foods will be persuaded by Price's conscience-sparing Steak Diane, creamed onions, and Shrimp Po' Boy, followed by her Died-and-Went-to Heaven Chocolate Cake. (Dec.)

Format: Hardcover
`Eating Well' claims to be, to healthy eating what Julia Child's `Mastering the Art of French Cooking' was to Americans in the 60's. That perhaps is a bit of an overstatement, especially since there are not the amount of techniques and help given, although for these simpler recipes there are many hints and help included; such as how to trim an artichoke.
There are numerous lovely pictures for most of the recipes, done so well they will definitely make you hungry. A list of menus is included, with page numbers for those recipes. The key to the icons is almost hidden with information in the back of the book. I can't imagine why you would not have a key in an obvious place in the front of the book.
There are several guides/charts with information such as; tables to steam vegetables, choosing ground meat. The shopping tips in many recipes are excellent. Most of these recipes are relatively simple even for a beginning cook, but will make dishes that even a more experienced one would be proud of. The shrimp and summer squash with saffron rice is wonderful.
Included is: how to eat well for life, appetizers and drinks, soups, salads, vegetables, grains and breads, sandwiches and burgers, pizza and pasta, vegetarian, fish and seafood, poultry, meat, desserts, cookies and bars, breakfast and brunch. Resources include, nutrition labels, tools and equipment, grilling times the healthy pantry, a glossary and substitution guide.

Those aiming to eat more healthy or who want better recipes with less fat and `unhealthy' ingredients might want to give this cookbook a try.

Just as with the other Eating Well cookbooks, this one is well thought out and includes lots of wonderful recipes. The thing I loved the most though, is how they give a basic recipe and then multiple variations. For example, there is a basic quick bread recipe and then 6 variations with different fruit and nut combinations. They also give charts on how long vegetables need to be steamed, roasted or sauteed accompanied by a list of different sauces. They leave it to you to decide which sauce would work on which vegetable.
All in all, a great value and a great addition to your cokbook collection.

Format: Hardcover
Exactly as the name states, this book is full of simple recipes to allow one to eat healthily. I am a big fan of the magazine, so it makes sense that I would love the book. But it truly is a comprehensive, well-thought and laid-out book. My one and only complaint is that I like to have a photo of every recipe, and while there are many beautiful photos, not one for each recipe.

There are many quick tips and cooking techniques that will help novice and seasoned cooks alike. I consider myself somewhat of a "foodie", and experienced cook, but not a food snob. I like simple healthy ingredients, and these recipes center on exactly that. Seasonal is your best bargain, as you are eating foods at the time nature intends, and given their abundance, price is generally low as well.

The book contains lots of ideas for menu planning too. If you are looking for recipes that will allow you to eat good tasting, healthy food on a budget, this is the perfect place to start. I highly recommend.

I love this cookbook. I subscribe to Eating Well magazine and have all of their cookbooks. This one is my new favorite. I spent a week of preparing meals from just this book and they were all big hits with my family. I really enjoy cooking healthful meals that are also flavorful. The photographs are beautiful, with the majority of recipes having a photo to accompany them. I have a large library of cookbooks ( about 200) and this will be one that will live on the "Favorites" shelf.

Love this book. Borrowed it from the library first to make sure I liked enough recipes in it to make it worth the money to buy. Recipes are not difficult to follow and taste great. Recommend highly.

Format: Hardcover
This was the first cookbook I bought as an adult. I wanted something that had tons of color pictures (this book is loaded with them on almost every page), varied recipies, and an emphasis on eating healthy. The Simple Art of Eating Well is a cookbook I use regularly and can't wait to buy as a gift for the next occasion that calls for it. The book has (healthy!) recipies for all kinds of food, from pizzas to desserts.

I love the how-to's that explain how to cut up a chicken, trim an artichoke, and help with other culinary techniques. There are so many useful recipies in here. I love the pasta sauce that seems so doable. Everything is explained in a way that will help the beginner chef but won't annoy the seasoned expert.

I hate picking up a cookbook or magazine and seeing a crazy, time-consuming, ridiculous meal that the average person will never bother to make. There is none of that here. The recipies in the book aren't pretentious--these are easy, every day type meals.
