Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Eating Well magazine's senior food editor, Price (Eating Well for a Healthy Heart Cookbook; Eating Well Comfort Foods Made Healthy) takes an encyclopedic approach for this volume with appeal for skilled and novice cooks alike. With chefs from around the globe, Price has created 300 recipes (appetizers, soups, breads, pasta, vegetarian, meats, desserts, etc.) focused on key parameters: preparation time (most under 45 minutes); nutritional value (provided in daily values and calorie counts); reliability (thanks to step-by-step photo instructions); and international flavor (American, Mexican, Italian, Indian, Middle Eastern, Asian). Price's trove of insider tips includes pantry stocking; label reading; selecting and preparing meats and vegetables; cooking grains and rice; grilling; and working with tofu. With repertoire-expanding seasonings, sauces, pizza toppings, salad dressings, spice rubs and quick bread variations, Price shows beginners how to transform basic fare into gourmet meals; her guides to making gnocchi, mussels, sushi, and foolproof omelets will boost confidence. Health-conscious readers will appreciate tasty alternatives to butter, sour cream, sugar, and white flour, but even those committed to richer, saltier foods will be persuaded by Price's conscience-sparing Steak Diane, creamed onions, and Shrimp Po' Boy, followed by her Died-and-Went-to Heaven Chocolate Cake. (Dec.)
Library Journal
EatingWell magazine has put out a slew of cookbooks, including the James Beard Award-winning EatingWell Diet. Price, deputy food editor for EatingWell Media Group, suggests increasing fruits and vegetables, limiting meat, and choosing good fats, and she provides charts for cooking meat, grains, and vegetables as well as step-by-step photographs—all helpful for the new cook. Eating well isn't about giving up your favorite foods; it's about finding healthier ways to prepare them. Even pizza isn't off the menu. Prepare to be inspired to eat healthier this year.
