The Skinny French Kitchen




100 light and delightful French favourites from the author of Red Velvet and Chocolate Heartache

Harry Eastwood has taken on the challenge of a lifetime: marrying her love of classic French cookery with a desire to maintain her waistline.
The Skinny French Kitchen
is the result of Harry's year spent tasting, testing and tweaking the great French classics in her tiny Parisian kitchen up seven flights of stairs. Every recipe has been slimmed down to a fraction of its usual calorie cost without robbing it of flavour or its French character. From light and delightful Tarte aux Pommes and Mousse au Chocolat to irresistible Coq au Vin Blanc and Croque Monsieur, Harry has proved once again that fat and flavour don't always go hand in hand . . .

About the Author

Harry Eastwood

Harry Eastwood first came to the public’s attention in 2007 when she co-presented Channel 4’s popular prime-time television series Cook Yourself Thin. She later went on to present the 20-part US version of the show on Lifetime network and is the author of three other cookery books, Red Velvet & Chocolate Heartache – which has sold more than 42,000 copies, The Skinny French Kitchen – which was nominated for the prestigious Guild of Food Writers Miriam Poulnin Award for Healthy Eating, and A Salad for All Seasons.

Famous for her imaginative and unusual approach to food, Harry’s focus remains the creation of original and reliable recipes that work every time. Her most recent TV series have included Fox’s Baking Good, Baking Bad and Sinful Sweets, which aired on Cooking Channel USA.

Harry is especially well known for successfully sneaking vegetables into cakes. What may come as a surprise is that she has also been researching meat in all its aspects for more than 15 years. Her passion for butchery and all meat matters even took her to Smithfield Market where she moonlit as an apprentice butcher in her early twenties. Carneval is the result of this colourful journey.

Harry lives in Paris.

“[Harry] is a genius ... Try the Coq au Vin Blanc and the Mousse au Chocolat and be amazed”

Good Food

“Full of gorgeous Gallic dishes, both old and new ... perfect for treating yourself to a little bit of luxury without the side serving of guilt”

Red

“This is French food without tears, classic brasserie dishes which have been given a stealthy makeover to cut down the calories before arriving sylph-like at the table, but without losing any of their flavour. Magnifique, n'est ce pas? And, 'ow you say, totally irresistible”
