9780026019613: A Feast of Fruits

Fruits are healthy and versatile, and no longer used only in desserts. " A Feast of Fruits" is a collection of more than 340 recipes - for appetizers, soups, salads, sauces, preserves, main courses, and more - organized alphabetically by fruit for easy reference. Each section includes information on the fruit's history, cultivation and nutritional content, and tips of selection, storage, and best methods of preparation. Recipes for the fruit follow, for everything from a Tart Raspberry Sauce to serve with poultry and pork to Brandied Cherry Preserves. All of the recipes are written with an eye to reducing calories and fat without sacrificing flavour.

From Publishers Weekly:

A number of food writers have been jumping onto the fruit bandwagon with books about the benefits of more fruit in one's diet. Riely's book is a welcome addition to the genre. Because fruits need little sugar or fat to bring out flavor, the bulk of the recipes are fairly low-cal. Happily, Riely, a food consultant and writer whose work has appeared in Bon Appetit and Gourmet , hasn't been content to stick just with "healthy" dishes. Her book, which follows an abecedarium in outline, features some old standbys like peach melba and apple pie. There are also out-and-out caloric indulgences--rum raisin ice cream--and charmingly unusual foods, like "Yorkshire Mousies." Readers can put together a soup-to-nuts dinner using her book. Chilled tomato-orange soup, followed by shrimp grilled with ginger, lime and coriander butter, and fresh blueberry tart with mascarpone, washed down with Nantucket fog cutters, is one potential menu. Each chapter is introduced with an authoritative discussion of that particular fruit's history and how to shop for and store it. The recipes are well-written and provide do-ahead tips when practical. Riely includes a chapter on more exotic fruits, such as the atemoya and tamarillo, with a brief description of each and suggestions on how it can be cooked.

From Library Journal:

This is a lovely collection of dozens of fruit-based recipes both sweet and savory. Riely, a food writer and consultant, concentrates primarily on commonly available fruits, which these days include mangoes and papayas as well as apples and pears, but she does append a brief chapter on exotic fruits. Recipes are imaginative and fresh, with some as homey as Winter Fruit Compote and Cherry Almond Compote; and others as elegant as Scallops in Orange Butter Sauce and Pomegranate and Endive Salad. Rolce Payne and Dorrit Senior's Cooking with Fruit ( LJ 3/15/92) includes somewhat more information on selection and preparation, but collections will want Riely's book as well. Highly recommended.
