99% Fat-free Italian Cooking: All Your Favorite Dishes with Less Than One Gram of Fat
With this newest addition to their 99% fat-free cookbook series, bestselling authors Barry Bluestein and Kevin Morrissey present their version of America's favorite cuisine.
They broke new ground with The 99% Fat-Free Cookbook by proving that tasty, sophisticated, and virtually fat-free meals could be made without resorting to artificial ingredients. With 99% Fat-Free Appetizers and Desserts, they applied those same principles to two of the most popular and potentially fat-laden courses of any meal. In 99% Fat-Free Meals in 30 Minutes, they conquered the time factor.
Now, with 99% Fat-Free Italian Cooking, they bring their expertise to bear on one of America's favorite cuisines. While Italian food may, for some, be synonymous with olive oil and cheese, it is also famous for its use of healthy grains, pasta, and rice. Bluestein and Morrissey have conquered polenta, tamed risotto, and made peace with pasta, but they also include a full range of 99% fat-free meats, poultry, and fish, with dishes ranging from Seafood Salad to Sausage Calzones to Veal and Couscous-Stuffed Red Peppers to Chicken Piccata to Tuscan Stew. Nor do they forget those delicious Italian desserts, such as Chocolate Tiramisu.
As in all their books, the authors include a listing of essential 99% fat-free pantry items, a section explaining special techniques and equipment, and a selection of suggested menus.
In short, 99% Fat-Free Italian Cooking is a must-have book for all Italian food-lovers concerned with limiting their dietary fat.
