I love to cook, and love to read cookbooks as if they are novels. Shelf space being at a premium, over the years I've learned to be discriminating about what books I actually add to my collection. Too many purchases made with high expectations only to be disappointed by the reality. So now I first check the public library to actually evaluate a new book before buying. After giving this one a test run, I definitely plan to buy this cookbook.Art Smith came to fame by being Oprah Winfrey's personal chef, and watching him on her show is how I first became aware of him, although he clearly has expanded his own celebrity chef status. I don't own any of his other cookbooks so I approached this one without any knowledge of past published work. I was curious about this particular volume because it isn't a diet book, but rather a guide for sensible cooking created by a cooking professional rather than a fitness specialist. So, while there is no diet plan, there is a group of well-crafted recipes that are both healthy and tasty. Meals so good it isn't obvious they have incorporated healthy ingredients.The book contains 117 recipes and is divided into eleven chapters plus an introduction along with a well-designed index in the back of the book so recipes can be quickly located either by name or main ingredient. There is also a motivational note to his readers. The remaining chapters are: You Can Reclaim Your Health, Too! (8 pages;) How I took the Plunge (3 pages;) Breakfast Start the Day Right!; First Courses and Snacks' Soups; Salads; Vegetarian Main Courses; Fish and Seafood Main Courses; Meat and Poultry Main Courses; Vegetable Side Dishes; and Party Day Foods: Treats Big and Small.
