    Throw away your food pyramid and set this out on your coffee table. Just a glance at these gorgeous photos alone – and the simple prep recipes – will have you craving healthy clean eating. Note to fat lovers (guilty!) there’s BACON too (p. 145) and CHEESE (guilty!) p. 102 and chocolate (guilty!!) p.56. Perfect perfect gift book even for cooks and non-cooks alike.

    A sensual delight, January 15, 2014

    This review is from: Eating in Color: Delicious, Healthy Recipes for You and Your Family (Hardcover)
    It is too easy for us to forget the sheer sensual delight of food: the odors, the textures, the colors, the shapes, the sizes, and the exquisite array of tastes that it enables us to experience. We are hurried, stressed, obsessed with calories, even, sometimes, with nutritional value, which drives us to think “potassium” instead of seeing a succulent, yellow, curved banana that is worthy to be included in a still life.
    Nutritional value and and health benefits are at the heart of this slender, lovely volume, and each food discussed merits equal love and attention. A friend gave the book to me as a gift, and by the time I had leafed through it on the metro I had selected my dinner for that very evening. My family guests included a two and one-half-year-old granddaughter, and the recipes are ideally suited for the young as well as the adults. This is just one of its compelling features. We are encouraged to use fresh ingredients, and to be aware of the presentation: “Don’t be monochrome,”is one of the five cardinal rules given for healthy and immensely satisfying meals.
    I love to cook, and own many fine cookbooks. This book is the one with which I am having the most fun! And a cook’s enjoyment augurs well for a delicious repast. The author’s “philosophy of cooking” is refreshingly sane.

    I’ve just finished pouring over the beautiful pages of EATING IN COLOR and cannot wait to head to the kitchen and start changing the way my family eats! Having young children of my own, I find her concept of including the color wheel as a way to design menus inspirational and an exciting way to encourage children to eat expand their (sometimes picky and limited) food choices. We discovered blue potatoes at the farmers market last summer, and I am excited to try Frances’s recipe for Twice-Baked Blues. The Spice Girl Pumpkin Muffins were a huge hit with my family!
