Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Real cooking is an art form. A gift to be shared. I've had some fabulous meals from Rosie's kitchen, but the recipes in this book are my all-time favorites. The ones I ask her to cook again and again." —Oprah Winfrey
 
“She knows how to make low-fat food taste good!” —The New York Times
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This is a celebrity cookbook with a heart-healthy edge. Brief anecdotes by Oprah and recipe prefaces by Daley, her cook, may lure Oprah watchers--not only have they seen her weight loss, now they can taste the foods that presumably helped to make it possible. Others will find her style obvious: ``I have thrived on pasta,'' Oprah confides. ``I can eat it every day.'' Exclamation points abound: ``Forget iceberg!'' she exhorts in the introduction to salad recipes.``Experiment! . . . Delicious!'' Fortunately, Daley is a professional chef, trained at the Cal-A-Vie Spa, and her recipes are no mere fluff. Practical advice on preparations that add flavor while reducing fat reflect her spa experience, while suggestions for garnishes add visual interest. The numerous tips stretch the length of the book, too: just 50 recipes are featured in 134 pages. Typical of Daley's approach is the following paean to paella: ``In this beautiful dish jet-black mussels, pale gray clams, and vibrant red lobster tails lie on a bed of golden saffron rice, surrounded by chopped tomato and green peas, its flavor enhanced by the addition of squid rings and an assortment of peppers.'' Photos not seen by PW. 400,000 first printing; advertising. May
Library Journal
A cookbook from Oprah Winfrey's personal chef would no doubt be popular no matter what proved here by the 200,000-copy first printing, but Daley in fact offers a number of zesty and creative recipes. Her professional background includes experience as a spa chef, and most of her dishes are sophisticated and elegant presentations-although there are also recipes for Un-Fried French Fries and Un-Fried Chicken. Many are highly spiced as well, substituting assertive flavor for fat. You'll probably need multiple copies.

    Still a Favorite

    This is a wonderful book of low fat recipes that are worth the time and effort to make. Rosie has managed to turn low cal recipes into 'dishes' that quickly become family favorites. The trick is they don't taste low fat and you really have created a gourmet dish with every recipe. Oprah's narration of the book adds to its charm, but the recipes are stand-alones!!!

    Rosie Daley: Her Book may Save your Life!

    'In the Kitchen with Rosie' is the most touching inspirational book I ,or any movie director for that matter, have ever read. It may be a simple book, but it will last with you for a lifetime, I for one would strongly recomend it. If it weren't for Rosie's book I don't know how I would have lost 150 lbs. Thank You Rosie Daley!
