Review:

Cool Kitchen offers 125 recipes that are enjoyable even when the weather is not overheated. Lauren Chattman has an inventive way with familiar uncooked foods like pesto, slaws, sandwiches, and fruit desserts. The brief section on pantry staples is a useful guide that will surely spark other no-cook ideas. She cheats occasionally by using store-bought smoked turkey and smoked salmon and purchased or leftover roast beef and chicken. Menus help you assemble 15 meals for various occasions almost without cooking. (One wonders who cooks the pasta for two of Chattman's dinners or the chicken for her barbecue.) Sure-fire recipes are Curried Chickpea Spread in a Pita, White Gazpacho, and the Rum Raisin Sundae. --Dana Jacobi

COOL KITCHEN: No Oven, No Stove, No Sweat! shows you how to make great-tasting meals for family and friends without losing your cool. COOL KITCHEN reveals the secrets of great cooking without heat.
