The #1 New York Times bestselling author of French Women Don't Get Fat offers a long-awaited collection of delicious, healthy recipes and advice on eating well without gaining weight.

With French Women Don't Get Fat, Mireille Guiliano wrote the ultimate non-diet book on how to enjoy food and stay slim, sparking a worldwide publishing phenomenon. Now, in her first-ever cookbook, she provides her millions of readers with the recipes that are the cornerstone of her philosophy--mouthwatering, simply prepared dishes that favor fresh, seasonal ingredients and yield high satisfaction.

Organized around Mireille's three favorite pastimes--breakfast, lunch, and dinner--these recipes emphasize pure flavors, balanced ingredients, and easy cooking methods. Eating pleasurably is just as important as eating healthfully, and Mireille does not neglect dessert and chocolate (essential components of any French woman's diet) and incorporates advice on entertaining, menu planning, and wine selection. And once again, Mireille offers tips and tricks to reduce one's waistline (including a secret family recipe from Mireille's beloved Tante Berthe for a delicious breakfast that melts away pounds effortlessly).

Filled with stories from Mireille's childhood in France, her life in Paris, Provence, and New York, and her extensive travels and meals for business and enjoyment, The French Women Don't Get Fat Cookbook is a beautiful, practical lifestyle guide to living well, eating wonderfully, and getting the most out of life with the least amount of stress.

Should be called “boring cooking”!

Aug 25, 2012

Must admit that after reading the first couple of chapters, I merely skimmed the rest and did not take note of any recipes that I would want to try. I see why French women, and probably men, too, don't get fat. The recurring theme is portion size and simple foods. The recipes that I read all seem to revolve around about 3-5 ingredients and those often vegetables like artichokes, carrots, endive, tomato paired with chicken. Definitely minimalist cooking, I thought.
