Book Description

6 Jan 2011 Slimming World

Italian cuisine has been a firm favourite in Britain ever since it arrived here, yet people who are trying to lose weight often shy away from the much-loved pastas, risottos and sauces for fear that the carbs, cheeses or oils will pile on the pounds.

This cookbook from the UK's leading slimming organisation shows you how healthy Italian food can be and how it can in fact help you to lose weight. The simple delicious recipes embrace the Italian love of wholesome food ensuring you won't go hungry. From tasty starters, such as Tuscan Bean Soup, to main courses such as a Creamy Smoked Salmon Pasta with Dill, Steak Tagliata with Roasted Vine Tomatoes or Pumpkin, Chilli and Sage Risotto you can experience the best of Italian cooking in your own home. There are even plenty of irresistible guilt-free desserts, including Chocolate and Banana Tiramisu and Raspberry Pannacotta.

Packed with all the nutritional, diet and lifestyle information you need if you're following the Slimming World food optimising plan, as well as more than 120 delicious recipes, this cookbook is ideal for dieters or simply anyone wanting an exciting selection of flavoursome, healthy recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous to read, gorgeous to eat! 13 April 2011
Format:Hardcover
I was seduced when I first flicked through the book. The food is photographed to look truly scrumptious. And then I cooked from it and it was truly scrumptious.

There are chapters on starters, pasta and rice, fish & shellfish, meat and poultry, vegetarian mains, vegetable side dishes, and desserts. Many of the recipes are syn free or very low syn (including the desserts!), so I'm not really sure what the previous reviewer was complaining about. If you can have 10-15 syns per day, why not use 1 or 2 for a delicious main course. In many cases for the pasta the syns were due to parmesan, so just use your A choice if you are that worried :)

My favourite recipes so far are the grilled courgettes (simple, quick, yummy), spinach with sultanas and pine nuts, roasted vine tomatoes, bacon wrapped monkfish with rosemary rosties, leek risotto and the parma ham wrapped duck breast. I've always cooked Italian dishes since living as an au pair in Italy in my teens but too often British Italian cook books concentrate on pasta and rice and don't include many of the meat and vegetable dishes the Italians are so good at. This book does not fall into that trap.

My only negative comment would be about the Osso Bucco recipe which says to remove the bone marrow from the veal shanks before cooking. What is the point? If you want to eat Osso Bucco, then go the whole hog. The bone marrow is the best bit of the dish! Otherwise I couldn't complain about the flavours of the recipes: light and fresh or deep and hearty depending on the dish. Fans of Italian food won' be disappointed.

By D. Jones #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Length: 3:18 Mins
This book is well worth getting if you love Italian food and you are following the Slimming World eating plan.

The recipes are easy to follow and the ones I have tried have been very tasty - no one in the family realised that they were eating something from the Slimming World book.

Many of the recipes have a full page glossy photograph which is great inspiration to get you to try the dish. However not all recipes had a photograph and I have found that those have been the ones I have been less likely to cook.

It is split into sensible sections with a good range of menus in each section:
Soups and starters
Salads and snacks
Pasta and risottos
Fish and shellfish
Meat and poultry
Vegetarian
Sides and accompaniments
Desserts

The recipes are easy to follow and timings have generally been accurate. Many of the recipes are syn free especially if you are on the extra easy plan. Yes some of the richer meals and most of the deserts need to have the syns counted but I don't see that is a problem as you are allowed up to 15 syns a day - just count them into your allowance.

If you don't know anything about Slimming World but fancy this book there is enough information at the beginning of it to help get you started. It explains the difference between the three different plans, free foods and syns. Even if you aren't bothered about losing weight the recipes in the book are so tasty that it can hold its own as an Italian recipe book

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent cookbook from Slimming World 22 Jun 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love Italian food and have been a member of Slimming World for 8 months with a 3st 8lb weight loss so far, due in no small measure to the fact that I can consume as much pasta as I like on this diet. It is classed as a free food and certainly appears to have helped keep my appetite satiated and prevented me from snacking on anything detrimental to my diet. The recipes are inventive and tasty yet relatively easy to prepare so it has served me well.

By S. Hugg
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A colleague showed this to another colleague who was trying to lose weight and I bought it because I liked the look of the recipes. I have really enjoyed cooking quite a few of the dishes (I am a veggie which is a bit limiting but have actually adapted some of them). I have loads of recipe books but think this one is excellent even though I tend to ignore all the stuff about syns and weight loss and use a good dash of olive oil, rather than the spray of low fat oil - oh, and two of us usually eat the meal for four but, having said that, neither of us has become fat as a result so they must be doing something right.
