Skinny Pasta

Julia Azzarello
Authors:
Julia Azzarello

Although pasta is often on the 'avoid' list of a diet, this needn't be the case as it's the accompanying sauces and topping that pile on the calories, and the pounds. The recipes in Skinny Pasta prove otherwise - all are small on calories, but big on nourishing nutrients, full of flavour and decent portions.Featuring a mix of timeless classics and contemporary interpretations, the recipes focus on fresh, healthy and nutritious ingredients, plus many are vegan, vegetarian, gluten- and dairy-free. From fresh and flavourful Vermicelli with Cherry Tomatoes, Rocket & Feta, and Mafaldine with Romanesco Sauce, to tasty salads such as Greek Rotini and soups including Butter Bean, Chorizo & Spinach with Pappardelle, as well as many quick and easy mains like Orecchiette with Cime Di Rapa & Chilli as well as the ever popular Spaghetti Carbonara and Mac 'n' Cheese, there's a pasta dish for any occasion. And if you have a little more time on your hands then make your own basic pasta dough, gluten-free gnocchi, fresh pesto or marinara sauce, although all the recipes can be made with shop-bought pasta too. With nutritional info for every recipe, each dish is 500 or less calories per portion.

Salt is Essential

Shaun Hill
Authors:
Shaun Hill

Food needs salt. The quantity is a matter of personal taste but some presence is essential and little is more disappointing from the eating perspective than a plate of food that looks fabulous and tastes of very little. It shows the cook's priorities are all wrong, that too much television cookery has been watched and not enough tasting and enjoyment indulged in.' So says Shaun Hill, who in this engaging exploration of his 50 years as a chef, brings his wealth of experience to the table, sharing what he has learnt so that the home cook can create truly remarkable dishes. Never one to shy away from controversy, he covers everything from why local and seasonal are not necessarily indicators of quality, to why soy beans are best left for cattle feed and Budapest is paradise for the greedy. The recipes range from Warm Rock Oysters with Spring Onion Butter Sauce to Pork in Shirtsleeves and Buttermilk Pudding with Cardamom. And although his commentary is undeniably witty, it's Shaun's knowledge and expert guidance that makes this book an invaluable tome for anyone who takes their food (but not themselves) seriously. 'This is a book you need to own; a lifetime's hard work in the kitchen distilled into sensible brevity. Shaun is a friend and a great cook.' Rick Stein

Greedy Girl's Diet

Nadia Sawalha
Authors:
Nadia Sawalha

Nadia Sawalha has always loved cooking, but until recently rarely ate her own food. Like a lot of women, whilst her family tucked in to delicious dishes, she nibbled on diet food. Later, ravenously hungry, she binged, somehow convincing herself that the calories didn't count if nobody saw her eating them. Two years ago, after decades of fluctuating weight, she decided enough was enough: * She wasn't going to start a new diet tomorrow. * She wasn't going to start a new diet ever again. * She was going to eat normal meals with her family and, most importantly, she was going to do so for the rest of her life. Since then, Nadia has lost and kept off 31/2 stone, by simply throwing away the diet books. Instead she shaved off the hidden calories, all without anyone noticing. A little less oil here, a different cut of meat there; brown rice instead of white, more herbs, spices and colour; and a dessert every day! The result is The Greedy Girl's Diet, which is packed with more than 100 delicious recipes, and Nadia's invaluable tips and advice on how to achieve a slim, fit and healthy body.
