Overview

Jane Brody’s Good Food Book is a great American cookbook, one destined to take its place alongside such classics as the Joy of Cooking and America Cooks. —Pierre Franey
As anyone interested in good food and good health knows, Jane E. Brody has been one of the major guiding forces of the revolution in health consciousness that has swept this country in the past decade. Her message has been simple yet profound: good nutrition is vital to good health, and healthful foods can be flavorful and festive, too. In this volume, following her best-selling "Jane Brody's Nutrition Book" and "Jane Brody's Good Food Book," she presents more than 500 new, delicious, and wholesome recipes specifically geared toward entertaining. Some have been suggested by her readers; others have been adapted from recipes devised by noted cooks and food writers; many are Brody family favorites.

A dazzling collection of more than 500 healthy but elegant recipes from the bestselling author and "Personal Health" columnist of The New York Times. Innovative recipes for drinks, appetizers, soups, sauces, side dishes, entres, desserts and more. Illustrated.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Both these books are devoted to healthful eating, but in some ways they couldn't be more different. Brody, the New York Times health columnist and author of Jane Brody's Good Food Book ( LJ 11/1/85), offers some 500 low-fat, low-cholesterol, low-salt recipes. Some are adaptations of food magazine recipes, some come from her readers, some are familiar favorites that have been reworked. Hers is satisfying, homey, but not always particularly exciting food. Many recipes involve long lists of ingredients. Nevertheless, Brody's following guarantees that this will be much in demand. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/15/90. Schneider, a former chef, is a food writer and contributing editor of Food & Wine. Her healthful, low-calorie dishes are fresh, imaginative, and visually stunning: Wild Mushroom Ragout with Polenta, Mesclun Salad with Pan-fried Tuna, Phyllo Pear Tart with Fried Raspberries. Although the price may make this a luxury item for some libraries, it's a diet book like no other. Highly recommended.
