Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Roscher, with over 25 years as a cook and restaurant manager, experienced a potentially deadly flare-up of Crohn's disease in 2001. The result of her subsequent research into both Crohn's and colitis is this cookbook, designed to provide patients with tasty recipes that will supposedly lesson the likelihood of flare-ups. However, most of the dishes are similar to those found in many general collections. Readers will find such recipes as a standard potato salad mixture, Sirloin Tips on Rice, or Maple-Glazed Carrots. Even the dessert options are very common (e.g., Bren's Apple Pie, Cherry Pie, Pumpkin Pie), although they do offer alternatives that are lower in fat than the typical recipe. The fat per serving is probably reduced further by the sometimes unrealistic servings: most pumpkin pie recipes cannot serve up to ten people! A nutritional analysis is not provided for each recipe, so users must consult another source to compile accurate per-serving nutritional specifics. Recommended only for very large or highly specialized cooking collections.
