|The Light Touch:
All-time favorite recipes made healthful & delicious
|The premise for The Light Touch Cookbook is to remove the fat from our favorite dishes without removing the taste. It is a challenge for some cooks, but not Simmons, who seems to have an intuitive sense of how to trick our palates into being happily sated even when much of the fat has been omitted by using low fat cooking techniques, ingredients with flavor hits, minus fat, and fresh ingredients. The recipes are simple, well-written, and appealing.
Marie Simmons is a wizard when it comes to subtracting "the bad stuff" from the recipes we all love, without sacrificing an ounce of flavor. She is my new Good Food Guru and The Light Touch is my new kitchen bible. — Jean Anderson, cookbook author
Marie Simmons has found the winning equation—the foods we love, minus much of the fat, with their flavors enhanced. This is first-rate healthy food, not for deprivation, but for real enjoyment. — Richard Sax, cookbook author
