Review : Television Chef Lynn Fischer (known to many as the Low Cholesterol Gourmet) has created a guide to lowfat cooking that doubles as a crash course in home economics. In the first two parts of the book, Fischer combines basic nutrition facts with tips for establishing a lowfat kitchen, Including a guide to selecting flavorful vinegars and advice on choosing the best cuts of meat., The third (and lengthiest) part of the reference consists of more than 150 recipes that encompass every meal of the day; each recipe includes nutritional information, and many feature tips for extending or altering the meal. Although there are no color photos of the prepared dishes, Fischer does feature line drawings that illustrate techniques such as chopping beets and making artichoke hearts.
If a skimpy salad doused with a tasteless dressing is your idea of lowfat dining, hold on to your calorie counter. Lowfat cooking has come a long way. In fact, many of your high-calorie food favorites have an enticing, healthier equivalent in a lowfat version. Think chili. Potato pancakes. Or even cheesecake.
- Lowfat Cooking for Dummies will appeal to those looking for new and simple ways to trim the fat from their diets.
