While this is a small book (50 recipes total) it is still one of my favorite low fat cookbooks. I find my self using it in my day to day cooking far more often than some of the more massive tomes in my cooking library.
What I like most about Rosie Daley's cooking is that it doesn't sacrifice flavor in order to be low fat. You won't find imitation this, or fat free that, just good food prepared in an intelligent, but delicious manner. After all, what good is diet food if it makes you feel deprived?
If you don't already know it, Rosie Daley is Oprah Winfrey's personal chef. Oprah lost a lot of weight and looks spectacular. Rosie's cooking was evidently a part of that transformation. Now you can cook the same dishes that Oprah enjoys in your own kitchen.
