Review:

With 1000 Low-fat Recipes, Terry Blonder Golson has produced the definitive resource for creative low-fat cooking. An experienced chef and cooking teacher who specializes in low-fat home cooking, she has developed an extraordinary range of simple, healthful, and delicious recipes for every kind of food under the sun, and you'll never miss the calories. Written with the everyday cook in mind, its flavorful recipes are straightforward, simple to follow, and quick to prepare: The majority take less than half an hour from start to finish and require ingredients that are likely already in your cupboard.

Many of the recipes are low-fat versions of popular foods, from oatmeal cookies and stuffing to lasagna and Kung Pao Chicken. Your taste buds will thrill to dishes like Strawberry-Stuffed French Toast, Mashed Potato Timbales, Scallops Linguine, and Chocolate Marble Cheesecake. Novices will find Golson's commonsense approach comfortable to follow, while experienced cooks will be inspired by the wealth of creative new ideas offered. The recipes are grouped by food type and are easy to access: whether you want your fish baked, whole, grilled, poached, stewed, gumboed, or pan-fried, you'll find it all under "Entrees: Fish and Shellfish." Golson also provides nutritional information following each listing. With this wealth of slimming, savory dishes at your fingertips, you will never have to skimp on taste to preserve your waist. --Jhana Bach

From the Inside Flap:

1,000 Lowfat Recipes is the most complete cookbook of its kind. Here is an extraordinary range of simple, healthful, and delicious lowfat recipes for every kind of food you could want to cook, from breakfast to dessert and everything in between. It is the only book you need if you, like so many other Americans, are trying to improve your health by cutting back on fat. Unlike some other lowfat cookbooks, 1,000 Lowfat Recipes is easy to use. Written with the everyday cook in mind, its flavorful recipes are straightforward, simple to follow, as well as quick to prepare: Many take less than half an hour from start to finish. The ingredients it calls for are accessible and familiar—almost all are available at the supermarket. Many of the recipes are lowfat versions of your favorite foods like meatloaf and apple pie, Chicken Nuggets and Lasagna, even lowfat Sloppy Joes and Brownies. Others are Golson's creative inventions. Try Strawberry-Stuffed French Toast for breakfast; Chicken and Pesto Stuffed Potatoes for lunch; Five-Spice Turkey Cutlets for dinner; and Cappuccino Mud Pie for dessert. Some recipes make use of spices and ingredients found in world cuisines, but are cleverly interpreted for home kitchens. Here is an Indian-inspired Tandoori Chicken; innovative pizzas and ravioli from Italy; from China, Kung Pao Chicken and Shrimp Fried Rice. Inexperienced cooks will feel confident using the explicit recipes, while experienced cooks will be inspired by the wealth of creative new recipes the book offers. The recipes in this book, in addition to covering an astonishing range, are unique in their accessibility and versatility; the dishes are simple enough for everyday, delicious enough for company. All of the recipes fit within sensible nutrition guidelines to maximize the eater's pleasure and minimize the cook's efforts. The recipes reduce calories and fat, while emphasizing fresh vegetables—tomatoes and carrots, broccoli and greens; complex carbohydrates like rice, beans, and pasta; and lean proteins. All recipes include nutritional analyses for vigilant readers as well as helpful hints and ideas to maximize the home cook's time and effort. Whether you have been cooking lowfat meals for years or you are just beginning to do so, 1,000 Lowfat Recipes is the one resource you cannot be without.
