5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite book of his to date 9 Jun 2008
I have quite a few Gordon Ramsey books and I consider myself to be a more than competent cook at home. Modest I know. I like to cook for people and I have a strong interest (some would say obsesession bordering on fetish) in food, where foods comes from, breeds, varieties, seasons etc. However, I do find that a lot of cook books out on the market, particularly from chefs yet alone Michellin starred chefs go too far. They seek to give tangible copies of the fantasy of their restaurants in your home, initially in hard back.

This is the first of his books that I have found myself using almost daily. I have a girlfriend who is on WeightWatchers at the moment and if any of you are going through that experience of looking at ingredients, trying to manage your points, you don't believe that X ingredient can be tasty etc then this book is really an asset in order to see what combination work well and do not compromise taste. What I like about this book is that I think it really reflects that kind of things that I eat for myself anyway and it either provides a different way of making/presenting things or it just simply gives me new ideas.

Ramsey is very clear that this is not a diet book as discussed by another reviewer. It is not a diet book. Not at all. But it is a book to keep close to you when you have seen things in supermarkets and you're either not sure what they are or you would like to know what to do with them. I am not a baker but I have made so many of his muffin recommendations since I have bought the book much to the delight of my housemate and, again, said girlfriend.

I would highly recommend this book over many of his others if not for the fact that it is far more practical and I would encourage anyone to have a crack at some of the recipes in it. I do raise an eyebrow at the dessert section of any book claiming to be healthy but I think that again he has made an admirable effort here and should be commended for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Healthy doesn't always mean diet! 20 Jun 2008
GORDON RAMSAY'S HEALTHY APPETITE is a must have for those who want great tasting food without all the calories and fat. It seems some have been put off by the fact that this is not a diet book. No one ever said it was. Rather, it is a healthy approach to eating without blowing your entire way of living out of the water. What Ramsay wants to make clear (I believe) is that there are several factors involved in healthy eating: proportion, moderation, seasoning, and the right combination of foods, just to name a few.

Highlights for me include the "Four Cabbage Coleslaw," the "Penne Primavera," and the "Pot roast sirloin of beef." Other may warm to the "Glazed Gammon with pineapple Salsa," which I haven't tried yet but will soon.

While the recipes are the main thing, there's also chapters on the "bad" fats and getting the right balance of things on the plate. Overall a great cookbook, on the same par for me as DELIA'S HOW TO CHEAT and THE KITCHEN DIARIES. Anyway you slice it, Ramsay has it going on, hands down!

5.0 out of 5 stars Healthy eating - without feeling deprived! 17 May 2008
A brilliant cookery book that shows how you can follow a healthy diet and still enjoy cooking and eating delicious food!

I particularly like the 'Healthy Cooking Techniques' section and the nutritional guidance - such as how to avoid 'bad' fats and how to eat a balanced diet.

I've tried some of the recipes - the steamed prawns with black bean sauce and the vanilla panna cotta with blueberry sauce are absolutely yummy! If you're a foodie who wants to be healthy, buy this book!

Have been using this for a while now, have tried 5-10 recopies - all very good - healthy and tasty. Remember that 'healthy' is the key word for this book if you're thinking about flavour. Recommended.

A friend introduced me to this book when they cooked something from it one day. I bought it soon after and have cooked a great many of the recipes. I haven't found one that isn't a) easy to make and b) delicious. My kids love it when they know we've cooking something from this book as everything has been very successful.

The great thing is that with a staple cupboard of a few quality and easy to obtain ingredients - Mirin, Soy Sauce, Oyster Sauce, Sake, Hoi Sin Sauce, Sesame Oil etc. - you have the basis for many of the recipes. Nothing in this book is too difficult and although there are recipes that involve some marinating the actual cooking part tends to be quick and easy. There's nothing more daunting than an endless list of ingredients, but this book tries to keep it reasonably simple yet the flavours are absolutely vibrant. The punch line of course is that the food you end up with is healthy and nutritional - the delicious flavours are a mere bonus!

Perfect as a starter cook book for anyone who enjoys a taste of the orient and good, healthy food.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I was looking for! 6 April 2009
This book is perfect as a present for someone who wants to eat healthy food, but doesn't necessarily know where to start! Particularly good for people who like meat dishes and the recipes will not scare off an inexperienced cook!
