Product Details


Product Description

From Library Journal

Raichlen is the author of more than a dozen cookbooks, but his previous "High Flavor, Low Fat" books (LJ 3/15/95, LJ 10/15/92) have proved particularly popular, and his latest installment is likely to be so, too. Some of the recipes are Italian-inspired rather than truly authentic, such as an appealing Basil-Grilled Tuna with Bitter Greens; others come from restaurants or trattorias in Italy, and still others are low-fat versions of familiar dishes like Eggplant Parmigiana. Although it seems unlikely that some of the low-fat re-creations (Enlightened Pesto) live up to the original, this is nevertheless recommended for most collections.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm a total convert! May 2 2001
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Lots of people will try a couple of recipes and then proclaim a cookbook good or bad. Well, I've used this cookbook for almost 5 months, and I've tested a lot of recipes now! My doctor recommended a Mediterranean diet when my blood pressure and weight got out of control. I had picked this cookbook up somewhere but had never used it. After my doctor read me the riot act, I dusted if off and for the last few months have cooked 50% of my meals from it. My husband, for the first time in 10 years, thinks I'm a good cook! I've lost 20 lbs and my BP is now almost in the normal range. Do I sound like a paid endorser; well, I'm not! I mean it's only part of the plan. I also eat properly at all my meals and get exercise. It's not one of those miracle plans you see on TV! But the food is beautiful, delicious, low fat and easy to prepare. What more could you want?! .... If I only owned 2-3 cookbooks this would be one of them. .... I mean it, this is just a very good book! Buy it, but only if you really plan to cook with it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Italian food without the fat July 11 2000
Format:Hardcover
I'm always looking for new low-fat recipes, especially Italian, and this book is fantastic. After just a week of owning it, I can heartily recommend "Chicken with Balsamic Vinegar", "Chicken Alla Diavola" and "Mashed Potatoes with Sun-dried Tomatoes" (who've thought of that one! )
The recipes were easy to follow, simple to make (depending on your definition of simple) and offered plenty of flavour.
The introduction provides good information on various ingredients in Italian cooking (and low-fat Italian cooking), and the recipes offer antipasti, pasta in its many forms, vegetarian dishes, soups, desserts and more.
Definitely one of the best cookbook buys I've made recently!

Format:Hardcover
This is a great cookbook. It truly lives up to the claims of its title. The recipes with the lemon herb crepes are wonderful and I've added them to my list of things I serve company. We had the salmon picatta a couple of weeks ago and will definitely make it again. I also like how he suggests ways to tailor the recipes for vegetarians.

This book arrived in excellent condition. You would never suspect that it was used. It was well taken care of. Looking forward to making plenty of recipes. Planning a "pasta party" with a friend and plan on bring this book along. A pasta party consists of homemade pasta making, italian recipe creating, wine drinking, and socializing.
