The Best of HeartSmart Cooking

Publisher: Random House Canada
From the IACP award–winning author of Bonnie Stern’s Essentials of Home Cooking comes the best of HeartSmart™ cooking, revised and updated with 75 brand-new recipes.

For more than a decade, the partnership of Bonnie Stern and the Heart and Stroke Foundation has been instrumental in changing the way Canadians cook. Bonnie’s phenomenally successful HeartSmart cookbooks have bridged the gap between healthy eating and delicious food.

This wonderful new compendium will be a must for every kitchen and features over 300 favourite recipes from the bestselling Simply HeartSmart Cooking, More HeartSmart Cooking and HeartSmart Cooking for Family and Friends, as well as 75 brand-new recipes to add to your HeartSmart repertoire. Many of the classic recipes have been fully updated to incorporate current food trends and new nutritional information. A satisfying breakfast of Lemon Ricotta Pancakes or an easy dinner of Korean Flank Steak, Sesame Spinach and Mixed Grain Pilaf reminds us that healthy eating does not have to mean sacrificing flavour or the enjoyment of food.

As always, comprehensive nutritional analysis is provided for every recipe. The book is filled with menu ideas for everything from simple weeknight meals to elegant entertaining, and also offers valuable information on how to stock the HeartSmart pantry.

HeartSmart is certain to become the cornerstone of your cookbook collection — the latest and best word on the pleasures of eating well.
