Enjoy French food without worrying about the calories!
Traditional French cuisine is famous for ultra-rich, high-calorie dishes, which are off-limits to the figure conscious dieter. In this book, Dr. Jean-Michel Cohen, internationally bestselling author and nutritionist, takes one hundred classic French dishes, from quiche lorraine to croque-monsieur, and serves them up in health-conscious recipes that taste as good as the originals, but at a fraction of the calorie count.
The book offers 100 recipes for starters, main courses, and desserts. With Dr. Cohen’s simple step-by-step recipes, even beginners can create fool-proof and delicious French meals. From the famous onion soup to cheese soufflé, a Niçoise salad to boeuf bourguignon, and from crêpes Suzette to a layered mille-feuilles dessert, these easy-to-follow recipes will impress your dinner companions and get your body beach-ready at the same time. General advice on how to “lighten” your own favorite recipes makes this cookbook a valuable reference for life-long healthy—and enjoyable—meals. The whole family (not just dieters) will relish these appealing dishes.
