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