Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Here are two celebrity cookbooks by celebrities, not celebrity chefs. Singer Labelle loves food and cooking; she even takes her pots and pans with her when she's on tour so that she can whip up a meal in her hotel room after a show. Here are recipes for what she likes best, many of them family favorites handed down from her grandmother, mother, and others: Pass-It-On Pot Roast, Aunt Verdelle's Savory Red Rice, Fierce Fried Corn, Baby Henry's Bread Pudding. Childhood memories, anecdotes about life on the road, and touching recollections about her family are interspersed throughout the book. LaBelle's memoir, Don't Block the Blessings (Riverhead, 1996), was a huge best seller, and her cookbook is sure to be popular. Lakshmi is a supermodel who was born in India, grew up in the United States, and travels frequently to exoticAand less-exoticAlocales for her job. Here she sets down about five dozen recipes for the food she likes to cook and eat, organized by country (or continent) of origin: Spain, France, Italy, India, Asia, and Morocco. Most are standards, and the text, while well written, would seem to be of little interest to anyone other than supermodel groupies. Not a necessary purchase.

Another reviewer panned this book b/c she bought it simply to "know Padma better." This is a cookbook, not a biography. The recipes are delicious, low in cholesterol and low-fat. They are easy to make and the instructions are clear, so the book is accessible to new cooks but still interesting for those with more experience in the kitchen. I think this is a terrific book, the recipes I've used have all been delicious (especially the Spinach and Garbanzo Tapas). I highly recommend it.

If you're buying this book for the pretty models, then your doing ok, but if you're buying this book for low fat, good tasting and easy to make recipes then FORGET IT, this is not the right book. This book claims to have good tasting easy to make recipes from all around the world-WRONG! The only thing this book has is pretty models that are half dressed. The recipes are not easy to make, they are quite complicated and take way to long to prepare. And after you're done, you'll notice that you just prepared a dish with as much fat or as many calories as any other regular dish. I was so disappointed after reading this book, I really regret wasting my money.
I would like to recommend other recipe books which I enjoyed reading and got good recipe ideas from, one is "The best recipe" This book has over 500 pages with 700 different recipes, from desserts to veggie plates, pasta, salads, stews to pizzas and soups. Alot of these recipes are low fat and low calorie dishes. Also, other good recipe books for those of us who really want to watch our weight, yet eat delicious foods are recipe books written by Dr. Shapiro. His recipe books specialize with weightloss recipes that are easy to make and very delicious. Dr. shapiros books are well written and easy to follow.

The recipes in this book are somewhat of a task. They require many different and exotic, sometimes hard to find ingredients. After cooking some of these recipes, I noticed the low-fat content was not so low. With all the ingrediants combined, some of these recipes are pretty high on fat and sodium. I was not impressed with this book.

After reading most of the other customer reviewss, I noticed that alot of people commented on the models more than they did on the actual recipes. Minus the models, the book isn't much good. The so-called easy exotic recipes are not easy to make. The recipes are somewhat complicated to follow, take a long time to make and require many different ingrediants. When you're all done, you can count colories and find out they aren't very low-fat afterall.
Even the Provencale Tomato Potato Stew is very time consuming. The final results are good tasting dishes, but they're not fat free. And the mojority of them are not done in 30 minutes the this book claims.
