Description: Recently Time reported that Americans are becoming less and less satisfied with traditional American cuisine; the American palate has a rising passion to be French.
Yet anyone who cooks is vividly aware that good authentic French cooking calls for ingredients that are dreadfully fattening. To cook French and not put on weight: that is the dilemma this book solves deliciously!
Here is the work of a French woman of taste who has written a book filled with recipes that are imaginative and different, spiced with that special continental touch that only the French seem able to give to dishes.
Most of the recipes are simple ones in which fattening ingredients have merely been replaced by non-fattening ones in a manner acceptable to the French. Just how acceptable is startlingly demonstrated by the sale of the book in France herself. It is in use today in more than 250,000 French kitchens.
Says the author, "I have not-written this exclusively for people who are trying to lose weight. This is a good basic cookbook of French cuisine. If the recipes and season-by-season diet menus it contains are put to regular use in your kitchen, you will develop culinary tastes and skills for which French cooking is so justly famous the world around. And you will do so, best of all, without gaining weight."
