Fall in love with food again…

From one of America's top chefs—who happens to have diabetes—comes a through-the-menu collection of 250 dishes to meet any craving, from hot and spicy to sweet and sour, from creamy to crunchy, from pasta to dessert. Yes, pasta! Yes, dessert! Valenti makes brilliant use of the innovations and techniques that are a signature of his cuisine—citrus to brighten flavors, unexpected pairings of texture and temperature (think grilled lamb patties with a cool cucumber, onion, and feta salad), turkey bacon as a foundation ingredient for a haunting smoky-salty quality—and never resorts to imitation products of any kind.

    Not as useful as I expected

    I heard Tom Valenti being interviewed on NPR and couldn't wait to buy his cookbook. However, now that I have read the cookbook from cover to cover and tried a few of the recipes, I disappointed, There are only about five recipes that I will add to my repertoire.
