Product Description

Review

'No don't worry, I'm not on a diet, but whatever book Annie Bell writes is always sure to contain recipes i want to cook. Her latest is no exception. --Nigella Lawson

'There's no pretence at complete carb denial here there's even a moussey flourless chocolate cake and a couple of fruit desserts but carnivores, gluten-avoiders, sugar-deniers and bloat-haters will find plenty to conjure with. Followers of Dukan and Atkins will be able to pluck and adapt too, especially as the carbohydrate and protein count of each recipe is given[...]Part of the plan is that, if diners still want carbs, you can add some on the side. It was sorely tempting to boil some rice to go with the slow-roast salt-and-pepper duck with spring greens and sherry gravy I tried but, as promised we didn't miss it. After three hours' cooking and a quick blast to crisp the skin, the duck was tender and gloriously burnished and easy to pull apart rather than carve; I doubt I'll bother cooking it any other way now I've tried this. And when a 'diet' book teaches you a better way to cook, it's a keeper.' --Emma Sturgess, The Metro

'If the January detox failed to have the desired effect then you could give Annie Bell's Low Carb Revolution a shot. [It is] a new way of eating to stay slim, rather than a one-off diet[...]made easier by Bell's easy-to-do recipes employing simple ingredients, which she used during her own attempt to stick to a low-carb diet.' -- Carolyn Hart, Telegraph Magazine

'Highly recommended for everyday cooking' -- --Alexandra Shulman, Vogue

Some good ideas and some of the recipe ideas are helpful if you're starting out on the low-carb lifestyle BUT the carbs calculated for each meal I've calculated are wildly wrong, don't know why no one else has commented on this.

Check for yourself; simple example would be her (delicious) celeriac mash: 250g of celeriac comes in at around 22g carbs (according to nutrition data dot self dot com) yet her recipe says 6.3g. For all those I've checked the carbs declared are way off.

If the figures are important to you, check them yourself.

I love this book. It makes you look at your vegetable basket in a different light. The Chicken and spinach pie with pumpkin mash is an absolute winner. Recipes are easy, no fuss and super delicious healthy eating. Highly recommended.

This is rather good as a recipe book. I have bought low carb cook books before, but they tend to be American with ingredients like '4lb soft shelled crab'. This is British food, sophisticated, delicious and even addresses the pie and chips problem.
Small quibbles. I would have liked the fibre content as well as the carb count, I can often subtract the unabsorbable fibre from the total carb.
I am a diet controlled diabetic and a lot of the recipes would have been too carby for me at the start of my journey, containing 10-15g carb per portion. Now I have lost 10 st, the diabetes is much better and I can manage these quantities.
She aims for low carb/high protein, which unfortunately misses the latest food guidelines. She has the traditional fear of fat. You need fat for satiety. Protein is everywhere, it's fat we need to keep ourselves full and slender.
The puds avoid the question of sweeteners, using small quantities of sugar and fruit juice for sweetening. Still too much carb for my type 2 diabetes to cope with. Fruit juice is just sugar and water without nutritional benefit.
Low carbing has truly transformed my health and body. Vital for diabetics, but everyone should be cutting down their carb intake.
The recipes are excellent, her dietary knowledge is a little lacking.

i was very disappointed with this book, maybe because it was not what i was expecting. i was anticipating a book containing innovative and imaginative recipes (widely available on the internet), using alternative ingredients such as almond flour, coconut flour, erythritol etc. instead it's a book of standard meat and vegetable recipes without any serving of carbs on the side, available in any standard cook book, eg duck a i'orange (19.9g carb), roast beef with beetroot and horseradish sauce (25.5g carb), roast garlic chicken, hamburger, roast peppers. etc. the only recipe that is any way 'specialist' is the recipe for almond coated fish. there are no recipes for breads, crackers, biscuits. there are only seven pud recipes, one of which is a cheesecake containing 200ml orange juice, 300g mango and 50g sugar (a tenth of a 20cm cheesecake contains 15g carb, a tiny portion by my standards). another pud is an orange and passionfruit salad (17g carb).
the book recommends a low carb, high protein and low fat diet- i would be constantly hungry if i only cooked from this book.
if you have few cookery books, don't know what contains carbohydrate and can't work out that mashing low carb veg such as cauliflower is a good alternative to potatoes, then this book may be for you, otherwise avoid.
oh and then i found this book in homesense for almost half the price i paid on amazon, which made me feel even worse about it.

I bought this book for some low carb meal ideas and have found the recipes very good and easy to follow. Fantastic to find a book that caters for normal people who work all week and don't have hours to prepare thing and don't need to buy hundreds of weird and wonderful ingredients. I also have enjoyed using new vegetables which I have never thought about using before. I found the big winners from this book were the egg wraps for easy low carb lunches, the celeriac chips, the broccoli mash and the cottage pie with cauliflower and leek mash - all delicious!

This is a really comprehensive book written by somebody who knows their subject. The chocolate mousse cake is a particular favourite in our family! The recipes are not outlandish but use ingredients that can be readily purchased in normal supermarkets.

Nice book for new ideas on low carb recipes but I found some of the recipes hard to follow and hate having to buy special non store cupboard ingredients just for the odd one or two recipes. Also minor point but I do like lots of pictures showing an example of the meal and this book lacks that.

I really like this book, it isn't sanctimonious or preachy, it isn't advocating a certain diet but it does give practical advice and a wide range of recipes for those wishing to reduce their carb intake.
