Just because diabetics must be careful of their diet doesn't mean they have to forego gourmet level qualities of taste, presentation, and elegance when dining at home. Chef Chris Smith has compiled a volume of outstanding recipes to grace any diabetic's meal plan in "The Diabetic Chef's Year-Round Cookbook", published by the American Diabetes Association. For the novice kitchen cook seeking to prepare 'diabetic friendly' dishes there are pragmatic tips and techniques that can accentuate the inherent tastes of healthy ingredients, advice on stocking one's kitchen to prepare such meals, tips on selecting the right kinds of ingredients or cooking foods at correct temperatures, and even how to use template cooking to make changes to one's favorite recipes. Broken down monthly throughout the spectrum of one year, each recipe showcased in "The Diabetic Chef's Year-Round Cookbook" is adjusted to the ingredients of that particular season. Enhanced with the inclusion of a sidebar identifying Exchanges/Choices and Basic Nutritional Values, the recipes include Turkey Gravy; Zucchini and Mushroom Frittatas; Baked Salmon with Mango Vinaigrette; Extra-Thick Lemon Yogurt; Roasted Corn and Red Pepper Salsa; Sweet Vadalia Onion Tart, Grilled Skirt Steak; and Tossed Mixed Greens with Grilled Chicken and Goat Cheese. A solid compendium of easy-to-prepare quality dishes that will please any palate and satisfy any appetite.
This is a good book for diabetic recipes that use fresh, local ingredients and are more sophistacated than the usual grilled chicken breast fare you find in mnay diabetic books. I love the focus on fresh ingredients and seasonal menus.
This chef probably cooks really well, but I do not run my kitchen like a restaurant chef. His recipes require that many of his sauces and flavorings be on hand, and he offers recipes for them. In a restaurant, that makes great sense, but it's a lot of trouble when you can just pick something qucker and easier to cook and not put in the time and patience for preparation. If you consider yourself a gourmet, this is a great book for you. If you have other things to do in your life, try something else. Try "The New Family Cookbook for People with Diabetes" by the American Diabetes/Dietetic Associations.
I was looking forward to receiving this cookbook. However, I found its content disappointing. The recipes aren't really that diverse or interesting. The Diabetes and Mediterranean Cookbooks are far better, at least for our palates.
I gave this book as a gift and it was very much appreciated. Its a great book with a lot of great recipies.
One of the best diabetic cookbooks I have read. Simple instructions, simple ingrediants, and good inspiration. Good basic techniques. It is my new most used cookbook.
