Michel Guerard's Cuisine Minceur by Michel Guerard
Michel Guerard, the inventor of the revolutionary way to cook beautiful French food without the calories. This is the cookbook that shows Americans for the first time what the authentic and original cuisine minceur really is - a whole new approach to cooking originated by the phenomenally talented and successful young French chef who single-handedly decided that fine French food does not have to be fattening. The result is unprecedented: strictly low calorie recipes backed up by the skill, training, and creative imagination of one of the great chefs of our time. Cuisine minceur is built on the classic principles of French cooking. It is an extension of grande cuisine and of the less elaborate nouvelle cuisine with which all the best French chefs are experimenting. But it is far more radical than nouvelle cuisine in its removal of calories - truly a tour de force that in all of France, or anywhere, has been attempted only by Michel Guerard.
