4.0 out of 5 stars A useful selection of mainly classic recipes, 6 Nov. 2007
This review is from: Healthy Fast Food: Best-kept Secrets of the Women's Institute (Paperback)
with a few lesser well-known.

`This book is not a dieting book, in the sense of a weight-loss manual, but hopefully an inspiration to become more aware, and hence take more control of what you eat, both inside and outside the home.
It all comes down to balance.......'

79 shiny high quality pages, split over 7 chapters:-

Soups & Salads
Dips & Sauces
Food On The Move
Main Meals
Whizz Kids
Desserts
Cakes & Bars

with an introduction, including a quick guide to nutrition, basic food groups, fibre, healthy shopping and cooking, healthy alternatives and an index.

Each chapter opens with relevant text.
Each recipe has the title at the top or bottom of the page, opening relevant text, number of servings, preparation and cooking times, freezing note, plus calories per serving, along with a clearly numbered method.
Some recipes are further enhanced by tips and variations.

Recipes include:-

Minestrone Soup
Mexican Bean Salad
Marie-Rose Sauce
Roasted Garlic & Chive Dip
Tomato Ketchup
Peppered Steak Tortillas with Charred Vegetables

Only a very few featured dishes, as far as photography is concerned, which may prove slightly negative to some readers, but those that are shown are simply mouth-watering!
