Review:

Have you tried the lower-carbohydrate, "insulin-conscious" diets and been bored by the menus and recipes you've found? So was Dr. Deborah Friedson Chud, who decided to remedy the situation by writing her own recipe book. The book is organized into protein dishes and carbohydrate dishes. Protein dishes include a variety of innovative fish and shellfish recipes, such as Crab Bundles with Avocado-Ginger Sauce, Clams in Black Bean Sauce, and Smoked Shrimp "Fajitas" (wrapped in lettuce leaves instead of tortillas). Poultry dishes include Chicken Kebobs with Spicy Lime Sauce, Chinese Brined and Grilled Ducks, and Smoked Turkey Tenderloins with Raspberry-Chipotle Sauce. Meat dishes include Pork Tenderloin with Plum Sauce (made from scratch with oranges and plums), Porcini-Laced Veal Roast, and even five recipes for ostrich. If you're a meat lover, you'll salivate at the artful photographs. The carbohydrate recipes emphasize high-fiber vegetables, legumes, and fruits--no sucrose, potatoes, flour, or grains. A chapter titled "Condiments and Flavor Enhancers" includes recipes for a number of flavorful smoked and roasted vegetables. Each recipe includes a nutritional analysis.

From the Inside Flap:

A DIETARY REVOLUTION IS AT HAND. The lower, healthier carbohydrate message of runaway bestsellers such as The Zone, Sugar Busters!, and Protein Power is transforming the way millions of Americans eat, look, and feel. Now, Dr. Deborah Chud's THE GOURMET PRESCRIPTION translates that message into inspired sophisticated, exuberant food.

RECOVER FROM THE CARBOHYDRATE EXCESS OF THE PAST DECADE. Dr. Chud's appetizing dishes are carefully designed to lower insulin levels, negate "carbohydrate craving," and increase fat-burning capacity. She has used the precepts of lower-carbohydrate, low-fat diets to develop recipes and techniques for a way of cooking that is both good for you and good to eat.

AVOID FOOD BOREDOM AT ALL COSTS. Full of fantastic flavors from around the globe, THE GOURMET PRESCRIPTION features dozens of recipes for savory sauces, refreshing salad dressings, and high-flavor condiments that are low in fat, calories, and glycemic index, wile bold in flavor and style. Pioneering such flavor-enhancing techniques as brining, infusion pastes, and stovetop smoking, Dr. Chud offers recipes for such enticing fare as succulent Broiled Lamb Chops with Herbed Garlic Puree, zesty Grilled Shrimp with Red Pepper-Caper Sauce, toothsome Chickpea, Fennel, and Red Pepper Salad, and the sweet delight of Fresh figs with Virtual Mascarpone.

THESE RECIPES SIGNAL THE WAY TO COOK NOW. A groundbreaking contemporary cuisine, bursting with tantalizing flavors and culinary surprises, Dr. Chud's cooking provides a life sustaining way of fine eating for today's tastes and lifestyles. Her prescription for better health, long life, and the pleasures of the table is, "Eat as though your life depends on it."
