Description: "Bringing out the seasonal freshness in ingredients, without using butler and other unnecessary fats, is the cornerstone of my cooking" says Michel Stroot, who has made the Golden Door's "spa cuisine" so popular with guests for three decades.
In The Golden Door Cooks Light & Easy, he really brings his concepts home, providing nutritious recipes that are innovative, delicious, satisfying and pleasing to the eye -- yet easy enough for the home cook to make.
This cookbook is geared to every sort of home chef, from those who want to lighten up their cooking, to time-pressed folks who want to eat healthfully, to food aficionados who love interesting flavors and farmers market adventures, to those who follow special diets. Inspired by his years of working only steps from the spa's organic garden, Chef Michel has created a book of recipes for all occasions — from weeknight suppers to elegant entertaining.
Shopping wisely, cutting time in the kitchen, and reducing fat while enhancing flavor — Chef Michel shares all his trade secrets in this book. You'll feel like a guest at the famous spa as you sample from chapters covering appetizers to desserts, poultry and seafood to meatless main courses, plus breakfast and refreshing spa beverages. Color photos and Michel's own narrative take you inside the Golden Door, where stunningly beautiful surroundings are a fitting back-drop for the spa's program of exercise, beauty treatments, opportunities for reflection, and, of course, Chef Michel's delicious food.
Here are the recipes guests love most—foods full of energy and Chef Michel's own enthusiasm for life.
