Book Description

The Art of Eating Well is a revolutionary cookbook that will help anyone who wishes to feel better, lose weight or have more energy. London-based sisters Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley teach their principles of life-long healthy eating with exciting and inventive recipes that are so delicious you forget the purpose is good health and nourishment.

Jasmine and Melissa’s philosophy is simple: a healthy gut leads to a healthy body and mind, and a better, happier you; that changing the way you eat doesn’t have to involve deprivation, but can be enjoyed everyday - whether you are home, work, with family or friends, or eating out.

This stunning book includes over 150 mouth-watering recipes - all of which are free from grain, gluten, refined sugar, high starch and are alkaline friendly.

The sisters’ down-to-earth, encouraging and practical guidance will motivate you to try new foods and no longer crave high sugar and processed foods. They include comprehensive advice on ingredients, techniques, equipment, cooking in advance, meal plans, juicing, and packed lunches and snacks that fit busy lifestyles.

The Art of Eating Well is divided into clear categories – Kitchen and Store Cupboard Basics; Cooking in Advance; Breakfast; Soups; Salads; Sides and Snacks; Main Meals, including meat, poultry, fish and vegetarian; Baking and Desserts; Dips, Dressings and Sauces; Juices and Smoothies; Basics.

Beautifully photographed and designed, The Art of Eating Well is a kitchen bible that delivers maximum taste and maximum nutrition. A bold and beautiful cooking companion for food lovers that will change the way you eat leaving you energized, healthy, slimmer and strong.

This is a first review for me, but after several conversations with friends and family asking me about this book I kept mentioning I thought I would share my experiences on Amazon

My wife and I had previously read some articles on the sisters and subsequently had seen them on Saturday Kitchen, we were at the time looking for a way of changing our habits and diet and this seemed to fit what we were looking for. Having young children we were also aware, particularly when attending several parties a month, that sugar and processed food is pretty much the standard and only options available. Yes, we do still let them eat some party food on occasion.

Substituting ingredients has not been overly challenging, certainly less than we initially thought e.g we would normally eat cous cous or rice, so changing this to Quinoa is not a great stretch and taste wise is for us (as non food specialists) really no different.

My wife now bakes with coconut flour and ground almonds which we found online easily enough but since the kids get more than enough opportunities to eat the sweet stuff we've been concentrating on more the savoury stuff like broccoli fritters (which they like with the addition of ketchup still - halfway there!) and eating more stews. The stews took a bit of coaxing with the kids, but we are pleased they are into them as they don't seem to mind eating vegetables as much in this format. Added benefit with the stews, is making use of our slow cooker more and the fact we can normally get a couple of meals out of them, which saves us time and money. So with eating in the week we tend to cook every other day now and just eat the same meal twice in a row which is actually refreshing and means a night off from planning mealtimes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sceptical to convert 6 Jun. 2015
By Emma
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Initially found this book intensely smug, bossy and irritating. 12 hours to boil bones? Sorry, didn't realise I needed an Aga to use this cookbook. 12-24 hours to "activate" soaked nuts in my "dehyrator"? What the hell's a dehydrator? Being told "how to chew" and what to use "in case you don't have any pomegranate molasses" irritated me to the point that I was ranting about it to my husband, and literally going to bed annoyed!

Anyway, I persevered with the stupid thing, partly spurred on by the fact the that two authors are absurdly gorgeous so I hoped a bit of that might rub off on me if I ate their style of food.

I started tentatively with some of the simpler, more snack type foods, and a couple of spiralizer recipes from their website in the hope of finding a realistic alternative to pasta and refined carbohydrates in general. It began to grow on me and I found myself dipping into it more and more.

So far I have made:

Blueberry muffins with cashew mango cream
Muffin frittatas
Watercress soup with brazil nut cream
Courgette salad
Baked courgette fries
Cannellini bean mash
Apple rings 5 ways
Beef ragu and courgetti
Fish pie with celeriac mash
Shepherds pie
Courgetti puttanesca
Lentil & squash curry
Courgetti with red pesto
Socca pizza
Bagna cauda
Pistachio, fig and goat's cheese trifle
Salted apricot caramels
Multiseed loaf

So far every single one has turned out successfully and has been much more tasty, filling and satisfying than expected. This is the highest number of recipes I have ever made from one book, and I am by no means finished yet.

Ok, so I don't write reviews. But the effusive, exclamatory and multiple-asterisked reviews kinda annoyed me.

Firstly, there's a definite philosophy which is sound; and from which I am totally sure that people (including myself) would benefit. So I'm not in any way questioning the intro (yes - I've read it) or the ingredient lists regarding their health benefits (yes - I have read, cooked and eaten the recipes... unlike many of the other reviews).

However, if you were to attempt to adopt overnight the advice and recipes in this book, you would be an impoverished and depressing soul long, long, loooong before you became the promised creature sizzling with energy, rising with the sun and tip toeing gracefully to your chlorine-filtered shower (with pre-shower skin brushing) .

I am a keen cook, and would argue that the many review comments saying this is perfect for the novice are .... well, .... er, ..... wrong. (No offence). Novices don't boil bones for 12 to 24 hours. And they don't have a store cupboard with sumac, stevia, amaranth, tamari, seaweed, cacao nibs, butter and powder, etc etc etc. And they don't go trying to source these things – not an easy or inexpensive job. I only had one of the examples I’ve picked out there - the sumac. (And I don’t even have a chlorine filter on my shower. Bad home cook, bad.)

As for the recipes, I picked the ones which combined ingredients I liked, but which I personally would not have paired. While I won't go so far as to those favourite ingredients are now dead to me, it was a close call a few times. I think I might need to adapt the recipes in the future while staying true to the philosophy (e.g. garlic and almond won't be going together again anytime soon). Having said that, who the hell am I to say that?

I like the look of the recipes. Have only made the bean burgers so far and they were dry though I used less oil than they suggested so no doubt my fault rather than the recipe.
