Over the past few years, low-carb high-protein diets have changed the way America eats. But how much steak, bacon, and cheese can a person eat? Low-carbers have been looking for a cookbook that will give them the variety, sophistication, and sublime taste sensations that the true food lover craves-and yet will allow them to reap the weight-loss and health benefits of low-carb eating.
In The Low-Carb Gourmet, award-winning Canadian cookbook author Karen Barnaby, executive chef of the famed Fish House in Vancouver, applies her carb-cutting techniques to sophisticated dishes, including soups, snacks, sauces, main dishes, and even spectacular sweets. The 250 recipes range from Prawns with Peppery Garlic Vinaigrette, Guacamole, and Pancetta Wrapped Salmon with Red Wine Butter to Beef Salad with Creamy Horseradish Dressing, Daikon Radish, Chinese Cabbage and Tofu Soup, Pumpkin Cheesecake, and Tiramisu. The author reveals some secrets to low-carb shopping and offers expert advice on meal planning for special occasions.
