Reviews - What do customers think about Secrets of Fat-free Italian Cooking (Secrets of Fat-free Cooking)?
God help me: I dislike her recipes. Jun 8, 2008
I've tried, really really tried! I went on a fat free and low-fat cookbook buying binge over a year ago. I bought just about every "Fat Free" book Sandra Woodruff put out. Know what? Not one good recipe out of any of them and I gave away the books or donated them to Goodwill. How is it that I can't find one recipe out of these books that tastes even halfway decent but others can? Are my standards so high? I just want low fat, low calorie foods that have a lot of flavor and aren't going to take all day to make....is that too much to ask? Of her books, apparently so. Read my reviews and you'll find some much better books to spend your hard-earned fatfree/lowfat cookbook dollars on. I swear that at one time I had a row of FF/LF cookbooks 15 feet long....there are a lot of ff/LF cookbooks but not many worthy of the name. Shop smart! Don't buy this book!
Can't fool me---I'm Italian!! Jun 21, 2004
OUTSTANDING and FABULOUS!!!!! Her recipes are so delicious and her cooking tips have allowed me to adapt my mother and grandmother's regional recipes into healthier versions. Try Ms. Woodruff's version of Tiramisu---I serve it often and it's to die for!!
I collect all her cookbooks because the recipes taste authentic to the higher calorie ones. Good food is all about nutritional value and flavor. This book is a winner!!!
Overall Good Food Even With Reduced Fat Jan 3, 2002
Terms like low-fat and fat-free often bring to mind reduced flavors and poor imitations. Fortunately, this is not the case with this cookbook.
There are recipes from appetizers all the way to desserts, and not only do they have more traditional recipes we're all familiar with, but there are less common ones, to make sure you've got variety to choose from.
Honestly, they are going to be different from full-fat versions of the recipes, and in a few cases, such as the Fettucine Alfredo, the healthier version really doesn't cut it - but for every one of those recipes, there are plenty of delicious ones.
I've used this cookbook often enough that it's definately got signs of wear - and it opens right to my favorite recipe from it, Lemon Chicken Linguine.
Each recipe also includes all sorts of nutritional information, so if you're really watching your diet, you'll know exactly what to expect from a serving.
Great tasting, easy to make recipes May 2, 2000
This is a wonderful book for anyone who likes Italian food, but doesn't want all the fat that is usually in it. It contains great tasting easy recipes that anyone can make, with ingredients found in any grocery store.
The author starts out by discussing low-fat eating & the ingredients that go into the recipes. Information on products for those with special diet needs is included. A great resource list for finding these products is in the back.
The recipes cover a wide range of foods including appetizers, omelets, salads, soups, pizzas, breads, pastas, sauces, main entrees, & desserts. Polenta, Risotto & Gnocchi are also covered. Each recipe has nutritional information.
Some of my favorite dishes include the spinach & mushroom calzone, lasagna & mama mia meatball soup. I recommend using low-fat cheeses instead of fat-free ones, because they melt better.
Best Italian cookbook for cutting out fat, not flavor! Jun 1, 1999
This is the best Italian cookbook I have ever come across. As a Weight Watcher member, I am always looking for recipes that give nutritional analysis. Sandra Woodruff seems to have a great understanding of fat-free cooking and her knowledge base is superior. The recipes are easy to follow and shop for. The book is loaded with additional info about product packaging, substitutions, and fat fighting tips. I've only had the book 2 weeks and already I have made 8 nights worth of meals as well as dessert. Try the blueberry cheesecake! I collect cheesecake recipes and this is the best fat-free recipe yet. I took it to work and even the most critical food pleaser enjoyed it!. I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs to cut the fat from their diet. You won't even miss the extra fat and calories!
