Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Mariel Hemingway's Healthy Living from the Inside Out convinced thousands of readers that its author was more than a celebrity searching for a career change. Mariel's Kitchen confirms that judgment with a well-orchestrated, beautifully illustrated medley of recipes, ingredient know-how, and cooking tips. Organized by season, this coffee-table treasure presents 75 well-chosen recipes, covering everything from informal summer breakfasts to Thanksgiving dinner sit-downs.
Publishers Weekly

Actress and model Hemingway (Mariel Hemingway's Healthy Living from the Inside Out) shares her secrets for cooking nutritious and appetizing food in this lavishly photographed book. She focuses on seasonal foods, organizing the book by what's fresh at each time of year. For each season, she provides simple and comfortable breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and snack dishes, suited for busy lifestyles. Recipes share common ingredients to make preparation fast and don't require extensive shopping. Often core recipes feature in other meals. Spinach pancakes are used instead of pasta in spinach and mushroom lasagna. Vegetables and fruit are the centerpieces of her dishes. Highlights include roasted bell pepper tapenade; ricotta "No Bread" pudding with blueberries; tomato, tarragon and a mostly egg white frittata; and portobello mushrooms with spinach and goat cheese. Poultry and fish are featured in such dishes as oven "Fried" chicken; seasoned wild salmon with minted mango salsa; and black cod with snow peas. Hemingway proves that healthy food can be enticing, and her dishes will appeal to even the least health-conscious among us. (May)

Creators Syndicate
“What’s equally as evident, from reading her passionate prose and energetic recipes, is her marked enthusiasm and emphasis on a holistic, reflective life. . . . Hemingway’s impressive energy unleashed has been a gift to many now equally well-nourished readers.”

    Recipes not so good

    I bought the book after seeing Mariel Hemingway promote it on the Today Show. The book has beautiful, colorful photographs and is pretty. I like Ms Hemingway's lifestyle which includes eating real, fresh food and keeping fit.

    I've tried several of the recipes in the book and have been really disappointed. They just aren't tasty at all. If you want healthy delicious recipes, buy a book by Madhur Jaffrey or "Three Bowls", a book from a Zen Buddhist Monastery. You'd be hard-pressed to find a bad recipe from those books.
