Description: Cuisine Sante is the next great movement in cooking. It combines all the style and flavor of haute cuisine with the healthiness of nouvelle cuisine -- while avoiding the excessive calories and fats of the former and the insubstantiality of the latter. Cuisine Sante is the magnificent traditional cuisine of France rethought for the health-conscious gourmet of today.
Cuisine Sante emphasizes the use of fresh fruits and vegetables, white meat, fish, and whole foods rather than red meat, processed foods, and fats, and employs healthful cooking methods like steaming. Unlike other cuisines that use these ingredients and methods, Cuisine Sante is neither puritan nor unsophisticated: the 120 recipes in this book have all the panache of classic French food, without being overloaded with fats and calories.
This book is based on the work of a French cooking school, the Ecole de Cuisine Franqalse Sabine de Mirbeck, and was written by its head teacher. The 160 photographs, which illustrate both techniques and finished dishes, have all been taken in the glorious surroundings of the school's eighteenth-century manor house in Sussex, England.
The natural conclusion to a decade of vacillating culinary trends, Cuisine Sante will prove an invaluable book to all those who place satisfying food on a par with good health.
