Scott-Goodman has written several cookbooks (e.g., The Beach House Cookbook), and Doner, an editor for the magazine Diabetes Focus, has written books on health issues (Hepatitis C Help Book). Together they have crafted this work on diabetic cooking for special occasions that everyone in the family can enjoy. Although there are sample menus (cocktail party, birthday dinner, etc.) included, the majority of recipes are arranged by type (such as side dish, dessert, or main course). The recipes require some familiarity with the kitchen, although the page layout is clean and easy to read. The authors stress the importance of variety in flavors and ingredients, and scattered throughout are tips on eating healthy and incorporating flavors into everyday cooking. An index (unseen by the reviewer) is included as well as nutritional information for diabetics at the end of each recipe. While not essential, this book will be a useful addition to many public libraries. Virginia Wolter, West Toledo Branch Lib. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
