How do the French eat a luxuriously delicious diet and still escape high rates of heart disease? Perhaps it's the deep pleasure they take in food and wine -- eating on the run is a sacrilege in France. And the truth is, French everyday cooking is less rich than we often assume -- it's based on a wide variety of healthful vegetables and grains enlivened with modest amounts of meat and flavorful fats. Chefs Alain Sailhac, Jacques Pépin, André Soltner, and Jacques Torres of the French Culinary Institute highlight the healthy side of elegant, simple French cuisine in their excellent new book, The French Culinary Institute's Salute to Healthy Cooking.
