Product Description Applying simple but revolutionary cooking methods to a wide range of sophisticated recipes, a low-fat cookbook by the consultants for Rosie Daley contains healthy versions of such foods as steamed dumplings and banana cream pie. From Publishers Weekly Bluestein and Morrissey (The 99% Fat-Free Cookbook) have done it again, delivering recipes that are high on flavor and way low (less than one gram per serving) on fat in this collection of intriguing starters and finishers. Appetizers are arranged in chapters based on main ingredient, e.g., "Meat and Poultry," "Vegetables" and "Pastas, Sandwiches, and Pizzas." Dessert chapters include "Tarts, Pies, and Pastries" and "Souffles, Puddings and Mousses." Each recipe includes its yield, e.g., Spinach Quenelles in Tomato Sauce for six, and a per-serving count of fat and calories. Unusual combinations star: Grapefruit, Cucumber and Fennel Salad; Scallop and Cilantro Pizza. The authors prove that indulgences need not be reserved for holidays with a hot fudge sauce that has 47.8 calories per tablespoon and a pie crust made from phyllo dough and pear nectar. With many of the appetizers suitable for a light main course (Peppers Stuffed with Steak and Wild Rice on Tomato Coulis), this collection will be a boon for the low-fat cook. 30,000 first printing.
