Review:

"The preface makes clear that this is 'not a diet book nor a road map to personal discovery.' Rather, it's a well-tested collection of more than 750 recipes that employ vetted techniques and abundant flavor to create dishes that are as healthy as they can be, given what they are, without sacrificing a pleasurable eating experience. Categories run from breakfast to dessert and include pretty much everything in between; scattered among the huge number of recipes are tips for food prep, cooking, equipment, and more. In typical America's Test Kitchen style, head notes are no-nonsense--lacking personality, perhaps, but offering practical advice. Dishes run the gamut from very basic to more adventurous: readers can learn how to make spaghetti puttanesca; crisp oven-fried fish or swordfish en cocotte with carrots and chermoula; pan-seared steaks or spice-rubbed flank steak with toasted corn and black bean salsa. For certain notoriously fat- and calorie-laden dishes--such as meat and cheese lasagna, a New York cheesecake, and chocolate chip cookies--along the way are 'Makeover Spotlights' explaining just what the testers did to create better-for-you recipes. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Awesome cookbook! The philosophy with which America's Test Kitchen approached this healthier version is logical and atypical for most nutrition-minded recipes: If it didn't taste good using low-fat versions of milk, meat, etc., they didn't use it. The recipes are flavorful, thoroughly explained, and well-organized. The 3-ring binder publication format makes the book so easy to use--no more marking pages and flipping back to the recipe while you're cooking. I've never seen a healthy cookbook with so much flavor and creativity in its recipes. Highly recommended.
