Product Description

From Amazon

Black Forest Cake with Italian Meringue, Cranberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake, Bailey's Irish Cream Cheesecake: Divine? No doubt. Indulgent? Hoo boy! But who would guess they might actually be relatively low in cholesterol and saturated fat? That's certainly the theme of Divine Indulgences, the 10th offering from prolific and peripatetic cookbook author, TV chef, nutritionist, and teacher Rose Reisman. In a low-carb, Splenda-sweetened new age, Reisman's fat-reduced gospel will no doubt strike many as old-time religion. But health-conscious lovers of delectable dessert are sure to appreciate this collection, in which the author comes, Bundt-like, full circle.

When, in the 1980s, Reisman attempted to shop her first cookbook around for publication, the "chocolate- and butter-stained manuscript" was met with all the enthusiasm and buoyancy of a fallen soufflé. Fast-forward two decades, nine cookbooks, and one very scary doctor's appointment--at which she discovered her cholesterol levels were into the red zone--to Divine Indulgences. This is a collection of over 200 sensationally sinful custards and cakes, brownies and brulées whose almost unbearable lightness of baking stems, not from being fat-free, but from using high-fat ingredients in smaller quantities. It's a kitchen-friendly compilation full of tips (most ovens are off by at least 25 degrees F) and experienced advice (avoid plastic bowls when beating egg whites; they're never free of grease residue, so peaks won't form), with recipes formatted on a single page sidebarred with complete nutritional analyses. Fold into the mix chapters on dairy-free soy desserts and Passover sweets ranging from mocha to Mandel Brot, and it's easy to see how, in a field full of cookbooks hailed as "not bad for a low-fat collection," Divine Indulgences leaves the pack far behind, choking on a plume of cocoa powder. --Tony Mason --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
