Entertaining Light and Easy: Lower-fat Recipes for Festive Meals

Front Cover
Simon & Schuster, 1998 - Cooking - 398 pages
From the author of Make It Easy, Make It Light comes a banquet of luscious, lean recipes to royally entertain guests at holiday time and year-round -- without pangs of guilt or expansion of waistlines.

Having company used to mean pulling out those killer recipes -- literally. Fat-marbled steaks, cheese-rich sauces, and desserts oozing butter and cream were all on the menu. But in today's health-conscious world, low-fat is the order of the day -- even when we're celebrating. Entertaining Light & Easy fills that order perfectly, just as American cooks have come to expect of the former host of the popular "Laurie Cooks Light & Easy" cable-TV show and author of Make It Easy, Make It Light, which continues to sell a decade after its original publication.

Here Laurie Burrows Grad serves up more than 175 healthful and delicious dishes, lighter on the calories and fat than the usual festive fare, all wonderfully easy to prepare and guaranteed to be a huge hit with guests of all sizes. Whether it's Balsamic Vinegar Glazed Chicken with Braised Apples and Chestnuts ... Rack of Lamb with Pistachio-Mint Crumb Crust and Tangy Mint Sauce ... Pungent Grilled Pork Chops ... or crispy Lemon-Yogurt Waffles with Raspberry-Orange Syrup, these are dishes to make any occasion special.
