Book Description

1 Mar 2007 The Low Fat
The food of the Mediterranean is famed throughout the world for its classic and hearty dishes with their delicious and appetizing combinations of sun-drenched flavours, colours and textures. Cannelloni, pizza, ravioli and spaghetti bolognese have become firm favourites the world over, but are not usually considered as low-fat options. A glance through this inspiring volume, however, demonstrates that it is possible to eat these foods while keeping control of the amount of fat that we eat. This fabulous book contains more than 110 tempting and appealing dishes from the heart of the Mediterranean in delectable, yet healthy, versions. There are recipes for soups, appetizers, stews, frittatas, pasta, rice and couscous dishes, salads, risottos, roasts, tangines, fish, meat and poultry dishes, as well as simple desserts and bread recipes. Each dish is an authentic recipe, or has been specially adapted to make it low in fat, but without compromising on flavour. Most recipes contain less than five grams of fat per portion, with a few indulgent favourites containing less than 15 grams. Try prosciutto and pepper pizzas, cannelloni bean soup, butterbean tomato and red onion salad, Italian pepper gratin, pasta with tomatoes and shellfish, or roast chicken with potatoes and lemon. In addition invaluable information is provided about planning a low-fat diet, understanding healthy eating guidelines and learning to adapt to low-fat cooking techniques, as well as buying, storing, preparing and cooking the delicious ingredients. So whether you're inspired by a recent holiday, want to ring the changes, or just love good flavourful food, this book opens up a wealth of fresh ideas that taste great and help look after your heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars My kind of cookbook 8 Mar 2009
As a huge fan of Mediterranean cuisine, my review might be quite biased! Nevertheless this cookbook does provide a comprehensive menu list of food from Morocco to Spain to Italy to Greece and Turkey.

Many of the menus are very simple in preparation and can be made using ingredients from the local supermarket. It is definitely my favorite cookbook!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good recipe book. Nice details. Great photos too. 5 Oct 2008

I'm glad I found this book. While there are many wonderful recipes, I especially like the color photography of the dish and the listing of calories, protein, carbs, fat content (by type), cholesterol, sodium, etc for each and every dish. That fact alone is worth so much to me. It is an all around well done publication. I wish all my recipe books were this thorough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to Change 1 Dec 2008
By Marie C. Stauber - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Having recently been diagnosed with extremely high cholesterol, it was necessary to make some lifestyle changes. Diet was one of them. The mediterranean diet was reccommended. This book made the changes in cooking easy and fun. The recipes are easy to prepare and colorfully and attractively presented. Menus are also suggested. Several recipes have become my new favorites. This book is the cornerstone of my switch becasue it was necessary to also reduce fat in my diet and some of the recipes in the Mediterranean diet, while delicious, are also high in fat calories. Not in my book!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Soups! 23 Dec 2013

I love the variety of soup recipes. I've made a few so far, all of them delicious. I am a vegetarian, so it did offer a lot of recipes without meats. I do cook meat for my husband, so I may try out some on him, except for the pigeon.
