    Book Description
    From Library Journal
    The title of Prevention magazine's new collection is not altogether accurate. Although the introduction focuses on the "health secrets" of the Mediterranean diet, and there are recipes from Italian, Provencal, and other such cuisines, many dishes--Turkey-Apple Canapes, Tofu Cutlets, Sweet Potato Waffles, Lemon Icebox Pie--seem to have little to do with the region. Martha Rose Shulman's popular Mediterranean Light ( LJ 4/15/89) offers lighter versions of authentic Mediterranean dishes; Prevention 's book is a serviceable collection of simple low-fat recipes that will appeal to readers of the magazine and other busy health-conscious cooks. Casale's book, on the other hand, bears out the healthful promises of this regional cusine. Her low-fat, low-cholesterol, and low-sodium Italian dishes include both traditional favorites and more modern creations; yet many have, in fact, required very little "updating," or modifying, to make them fit her criteria. Casale, a food writer and cooking teacher, is also the author of Italian Family Cooking ( LJ 11/15/84) and The Long Life Cookbook ( LJ 2/15/88), one of the better low-cholesterol cookbooks. Her "lean Italian" recipes have proved extremely popular in her cooking classes and deservedly so. Recommended for most collections.
