Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

In addition to offering detailed information on nutrition and diet, this hefty volume provides valuable advice on purchasing and storing healthy foods, menu planning, and cooking techniques that reduce calories while still retaining flavor. From soups to desserts, recipes for 400 different dishes-each of which serves ten or more-are given, with complete nutritional information included for each. While there are plenty of choices when it comes to general books on nutrition and healthy cooking, this useful, information-packed book is highly recommended for academic libraries requiring a practical text for culinary arts programs or public libraries needing an expertly written resource for professional cooks.

    Great pictures, but disappointed in text

    For a textbook, I was certainly surprised to find so many typographical, spelling and grammatical errors, as well as one or two minor misinformations. And though it is reminiscent of the quip by Mark
    Twain, "Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint," it is not THAT bad! The majority of the book is devoted to recipes. The ones we were able to try were very good. The photos are excellent quality, but it would greatly enhance them to have good caption accompaniment, which can be compared to a garnish on a dessert.

    Healthy Cooking for Todays Lifestyle

    I love my 1974 edition of "Culinary Arts Institute Encyclopedic Cookbook," but lately have become aware that it's time to make some adjustments to how I cook and what I cook. I needed to explore a healthier lifestyle in my kitchen. Over the last 35 years I've cooked what I wanted and when I wanted. Now I see the error of my ways and my Cardiologist would agree with me that its time for me to find a new cookbook.
    My new cookbook, "Techniques of Healthy Cooking" by The Culinary Institute of America is very imformative, educational and practical. It's easy to read and understand. I like that the cookbook explains in plain language why I need to eat a well-balanced meal and what foods I should be stocking my pantry and frig with. The book also provides meal plans and recipes to help acheive these changes to our families regular diets.

    Good, but not what I was expecting

    This book was not what I was expecting. It was written for the professional cook. I was looking for something I could use easily at home to prepare healthy meals for my family. The recipes are not written for the average home kitchen.
