Cook the Book: 'Techniques of Healthy Cooking'

20080114-ctb.jpgThis week's Cook the Book continues in a healthy vein for the month of January with The Culinary Institute of America's Techniques of Healthy Cooking. Though almost textbook-like in format and heft, it's anything but dull—what with its beautiful full-page photos and handsomely laid-out recipes, complete with nutritional information (of course) and additional metric measurements.

Besides recipes, five of which we'll be excerpting this week, Techniques of Healthy Cooking includes chapters on healthy diets and ingredients, and one on developing your own healthy recipes and menus. If you're keeping true to your resolution to lose weight or eat better, this book could serve as your primer.
