Description: The Art of Low Calorie Cooking is a new approach to cooking for passionate eaters and sophisticated home cooks who seek to balance the pleasures of the table with the need to limit calories. Author Sally Schneider approaches her subject with the philosophy that to live well we must eat well. Her book is more about pleasure than denial: by using her imaginative, thoroughly tested techniques, we can pare away calories while enhancing flavor and texture.
The 125 recipes, based on the foods and techniques she encountered in France and Italy and that she created as a professional chef, are delicious, satisfying, and have a strong visual appeal. They run the gamut from earthy to elegant, with such preparations as Smoked Salmon Tartare; Cassoulet; Radicchio, Orange, and Grilled Onion Salad; Espresso Creme Brulee; and Prune and Armagnac Ice Cream. Each recipe includes a headnote explaining the background of the dish, a special low calorie technique or approach used, menu ideas, and information about any unusual ingredients. Calorie, protein, fat, and carbohydrate counts are included with each recipe. Variations on recipes are often given as well - with calorie counts - to broaden the possibilities of the recipes and the range of the book.
The Art of Low Calorie Cooking, illustrated with 70 color photographs shot for this book by food photographer Maria Robledo, is also a source of ideas for entertaining and special occasions as well as for daily meals. This is a book for everyone who wants to eat satisfying, sensuous meals without extra calories.
