Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The title of Prevention magazine's new collection is not altogether accurate. Although the introduction focuses on the ``health secrets'' of the Mediterranean diet, and there are recipes from Italian, Provencal, and other such cuisines, many dishes--Turkey-Apple Canapes, Tofu Cutlets, Sweet Potato Waffles, Lemon Icebox Pie--seem to have little to do with the region. Martha Rose Shulman's popular Mediterranean Light ( LJ 4/15/89) offers lighter versions of authentic Mediterranean dishes; Prevention 's book is a serviceable collection of simple low-fat recipes that will appeal to readers of the magazine and other busy health-conscious cooks. Casale's book, on the other hand, bears out the healthful promises of this regional cusine. Her low-fat, low-cholesterol, and low-sodium Italian dishes include both traditional favorites and more modern creations; yet many have, in fact, required very little ``updating,'' or modifying, to make them fit her criteria. Casale, a food writer and cooking teacher, is also the author of Italian Family Cooking ( LJ 11/15/84) and The Long Life Cookbook ( LJ 2/15/88), one of the better low-cholesterol cookbooks. Her ``lean Italian'' recipes have proved extremely popular in her cooking classes and deservedly so. Recommended for most collections.
