Sophie's cookbook is the key to becoming an effortlessly glam woman with the best healthy quick-fix dinners for every occasion. All the stylish, creative recipes are for fool-proof dishes that won't make you pile on the pounds - even her recipes for comfort food have been created so that you're not left feeling guilty for indulging at those times when you really need to. Included in the book are recipes for fabulous party food and professional-looking canapes (that can be made in between applying your mascara and painting your nails), easy celebration cakes, aphrodisiac meals for that someone special, as well as detox food for when you really need a quick turnaround to fit into that little black dress. There are also great meals to cook for yourself on weeknights, or stress-free meals to cook for a family or friends. Food is Sophie's forte and she knows that it is the core of life - once you've mastered a good diet, everything else works!
