Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Sweet & Skinny, professional pastry chef Marisa Churchill presents one hundred low-fat recipes (including more than twenty-five sugar-free variations) that show readers how to indulge in dessert while maintaining a healthy figure and lifestyle.

           

In her debut cookbook, Marisa will show you (as she has also done on Top Chef and Food Network Challenge) how to pick the best ingredients, create contrasting textures to entice the palate, boost flavor with fresh fruit, herbs, and spices, and substitute lower-fat/lower-calorie alternatives without skimping on flavor. From quick weeknight desserts that can be ready in fewer than thirty minutes to elegant desserts for dinner parties and holidays, Sweet & Skinny gives readers all the skills and recipes they need to satisfy their cravings.

           

Hosting a dinner party? Wow your guests with Individual S’More Tarts, Goat Cheesecake with Figs, or perhaps a Rosemary Angel Food Cake with Lemon Glaze. Charged with a holiday dessert? How about Pear and Chocolate Upside-Down Cake, Orange-Chile Chocolate Bark, or Baked Apples with Maple-Gingersnap Stuffing? Faced with a sudden craving? Rest assured—No-Bake Cheesecake Cups with Concord Grapes, Molten Chocolate Soufflé Cake, and Mocha Affogato Milkshakes can be whipped up in minutes.  

           

Illustrated with vibrant finished and in-process food photographs throughout, Sweet & Skinny will help you make desserts that everyone will love, for any occasion.

          

For those who are trying to lose weight, have dietary restrictions, or are simply looking to cut or decrease sugar, Sweet & Skinny offers a path to eating healthier and baking simpler by lowering fat and cooking smart, with everything in moderation.

About the Author

“Filled with tips and tricks for making baking less difficult and less caloric, Sweet & Skinny leads the reader through the potential minefields that so often pepper dessert books. Absolutely recommended for any lover of baked foods, and especially for those who battle needless guilt and anxiety. Brava.” 

—JAMES PETERSON

“Only Marisa Churchill has been able to integrate low-fat recipes while still using traditional technique, and more important, without sacrificing flavors. A must!”

—HUBERT KELLER

“I always loved Marisa’s desserts—they were perfectly balanced and never too sweet but full of flavor. With the added bonus of lower fat, this book is sure to please all dessert makers”.

- ELISABETH PRUEITT, Chef/Co-Owner of Tartine Bakery & Café and author of Tartine
