Book Overview

For the first time, chefs from New York City's renowned French Culinary Institute have created a collection of recipes that are not only delicious, but also easy and low in fat. You'll learn from chefs like Jacques Pepin how to create dishes worthy of restaurants like Le Cirque. The chefs share 40 seasonal menus that use only the freshest, tastiest, healthiest ingredients for a distinctly French taste.

A must

This is a book everyone who enjoys cooking and eating healthy should have. While some of the dishes are a bit on the bland side, many of them are not. The wine steamed salmon is fab. The garlic soup is a favorite! Even if you don't make a single recipe just the information in the front of the book is well worth the price.

Cookbook AND resource

I love this book's tips on converting typically fatty recipes to low-fat -- it's more than just a cookbook, it's a resource. I've switched from puff pastry in a few other recipes, and it's worked great! I'm thrilled that you can still use a little bit of butter to give food that essentially "French" taste. The emphasis on fresh seasonal produce -- not to mention the photos -- makes my mouth water ... and the tips on things like the "sugar grid" make me look like a pro.

I'm using this book to save our marriage.

My wife has a demanding job - so demanding in fact that I have started cooking. And with bathing suit season coming, she's concerned about her weight - so I've glommed onto The French Culinary Institute's Salute to Healthy Cooking. It's a lifesaver because it gives menus - I've never been good at figuring out what to serve with what. And the food is so delicious, we can't believe it's pretty low in calories and fat. The Warm Chocolate Tortes on page 101 is amazing - although I don't use a pastry bag to make it. Just spoon it in. Now we don't order in pizza so often!

FINALLY -- fabulous French cuisine that is simple to create!

I love this book! The food tastes wonderful and is good for you. I'll be honest -- at first I wanted the book because it looked beautiful. I wasn't sure that I could cook good French food, but I did and it was easy. My friends and family loved it! In fact, all of my neighbors are talking about my dishes. I can't wait to show off the Cauliflower Soup this weekend!


I've always been a fan of Jacques Pepin and was thrilled with this cookbook! It contains elegant recipes for all seasons and occasions that are easy to prepare and delicious. A MUST for evey cook's collection!
