We bought this book because my wife is already a huge fan of Lorraine Pascal's but more so she loves baking and does it every weekend - but is trying to keep her calories in check.

My wife already uses the Hairy Bikers / dieters cook books and loves that they don't compromise on taste, and Lorraine's philosophy behind this book seems to be very much the same message.

We have baked three of the recipes from those released in the Daily Mail, if you're unsure about buying this book I would highly recommend you try out at least a couple of these recipes (a quick search online will bring these up).

We have been surprised by how many of the recipes are savoury, we were anticipating it to be primarily sweet baking (such as cakes and cupcakes), but it's nice to have a mix (I have put a full recipe list at the end of my review as I personally find these useful).

There are 100 recipes in total; split into the following sections:

Breakfast and Brunch
Bread
Savoury Bakes
Puddings and Desserts
Cakes
Cookies and Traybakes
Teatime Treats
Special Occasions and Entertaining
Pastry and Basics

Each recipe page has a nice introduction from Lorraine about the recipe, and a full colour image (for almost all recipes, very few don't have an image). I have picked a few random recipe pages and uploaded them on this product page above if you'd like to see.

Each page also has the nutritional information (kcals, fat, sat fat, sugar, protein and salt) for the standard recipes as well as Lorraine's alternative so you know exactly how many calories you are cutting by making the recipe.

My daughter is 8 years old and an avid fan of Lorraine. Each Saturday, she picks a meal for us to cook together and we go shopping and make it and curl up on the sofa to watch Strictly Come Dancing - bliss! Lorraine's recipes are delicious and easy to make and it's a huge bonus that this latest book has some healthier versions. Her skinny mac cheese is a winner. From her earlier book we also regularly make her easy Sri Lankan curry.
I particularly like her step-by-step instructions - it's really clear and easy to follow. I also love the little life sayings she includes in her book - not to mention, the book is beautifully photographed and laid out. It makes a great Christmas present.

As usual Lorraine has come up with good recipes. Like the way there is a calorie and fat content on each recipe. As usual tasty dishes and great tips and detail. Got all her books now. Great.

I bought this book mainly for the cake section. I love cake but am conscious that most recipes contain, in particular, a lot of refined flour & sugar. I have been experimenting with reducing the sugar in recipes, substituting wholemeal flours, using healthier fats, ground nuts, including vegetables and some fruit purée and using a small amount of ground flax seed. All these tactics create tasty, healthier cakes with good textures and, incidentally, lower calorific values. My feeling is that if you are going to eat cake then make it as healthy and nutritious as you can. I don't think the recipes in this book come up to the mark on that score.

I usually rate Lorraine Pascale's recipes highly and own other books by her. So I was really looking forward to getting this book to add new ideas to my repertoire. There are a few interesting recipes but I find most of them uninspiring and not really worth the bother. In my view they don't go far enough to break away from conventional recipes. The small reductions in sugar and refined flours plus the frequent use of egg white (ignoring the nutritive value of the yolk and importance of it in creating a tender texture) result in very minor reductions in calorific values at the expense of making the cakes healthier and more satisfying to eat without wanting to overeat. Including the ingredients I have mentioned above also helps to modify the effect of insulin spikes by lowering the glycemic index of the finished product so you are less inclined to want to stuff yourself silly and keep going back for another slice!

I have to agree with other reviewers about the publication style. The paper is too glossy and makes reading difficult as does the red print which, in any case, is far too small.

What a beautiful cook book........only received it a few days ago and I have done 3 recipes. My hubby loved the No knead Banana and raspberry breakfast loaf, and the banana loaf. I did add another banana and cut the sugar and fat down more and it was Delicious. Still rich in taste and moist....They did not last a day in my house.
The bread recipes are so tasty.
The book is beautifully presented and easy to follow. I will be purchasing some more of her books and look forward to bake and cook some more of her recipes.
