The techniques are a starting point for the more than 100 recipes, which have been developed in a collaborative effort. People from every walk of life, with a wide range of dietary concerns and culinary skills, have come together with Graham Kerr to create exciting new dishes, re-create old favorites and share ideas. The result is an eclectic and practical guide that shows all of us how to move out of the danger zones of high fat, calories and cholesterol into the realm of healthy eating - without having to sacrifice the things we love most about food.
With a clear emphasis on enhancing the aroma, color and texture in every recipe, this collection offers innovative original recipes and imaginative ways to transform standard classics. Whether appetizer, main course or dessert, each recipe has been thoroughly tested and analyzed.
Along with Kerr's engaging and informative notes, profiles of the contributors, and host of tips and suggestions, this cookbook provides the means for anyone to reduce the risks and to heighten creativity and enjoyment in the cooking experience.
