Format: Hardcover
We bought this book because my wife is already a huge fan of Lorraine Pascal's but more so she loves baking and does it every weekend - but is trying to keep her calories in check.

My wife already uses the Hairy Bikers / dieters cook books and loves that they don't compromise on taste, and Lorraine's philosophy behind this book seems to be very much the same message.

We have baked three of the recipes from those released in the Daily Mail, if you're unsure about buying this book I would highly recommend you try out at least a couple of these recipes (a quick search online will bring these up).

We have been surprised by how many of the recipes are savoury, we were anticipating it to be primarily sweet baking (such as cakes and cupcakes), but it's nice to have a mix (I have put a full recipe list at the end of my review as I personally find these useful).

There are 100 recipes in total; split into the following sections:

Breakfast and Brunch
Bread
Savoury Bakes
Puddings and Desserts
Cakes
Cookies and Traybakes
Teatime Treats
Special Occasions and Entertaining
Pastry and Basics

Each recipe page has a nice introduction from Lorraine about the recipe, and a full colour image (for almost all recipes, very few don't have an image). I have picked a few random recipe pages and uploaded them on this product page above if you'd like to see.

Each page also has the nutritional information (kcals, fat, sat fat, sugar, protein and salt) for the standard recipes as well as Lorraine's alternative so you know exactly how many calories you are cutting by making the recipe.

Okay I've been trying to go low/no sugar and these recipes fit exactly. Unfortunately I'm the only one in the house who likes them. The family is not ready such a dramatic transition but I found the recipes to completely satisfy my sweet tooth with low/no guilt. For the serious sweet-tooths in the world this is prob not the recipes for you.

The book gives you detailed descriptions and is easy to read.
Everything I've made tastes amazing and any time I tell anyone that's tasted what I've made wants the recipe. It's a great book and I use it frequently.

Beautiful as the chef herself. Loved the way Lorraine presented her shows on TV. These recipes are a must to try.
