Michel Guerard is a legend of French cookery. A driving force behind Nouvelle Cuisine, he has sold more than a million copies of his diet and gourmet cuisine recipe book Cuisine Minceur. His resort at Eugenie-les-Bains in south-west France is top of the list for the world's most discerning spa-goers. This new book distills forty years of expertise into one extraordinary toolkit for eating well and staying slim. Over 140 exquisite recipes fuse traditional flavours with the global influences that are redefining French cuisine, all with astonishingly low calorie counts. Blends of vegetable and fruit purees produce sauces of ethereal lightness. Flavours are intense, nutritional values high. All recipes bear the gastronomic hallmarks of a three-Michelin-starred creator-chef, yet main course dishes carry a calorie count of 240 calories or less. Michel Guerard has revolutionized healthy gourmet eating once again. For a new generation of figure-conscious lovers of fine food, Eat Well and Stay Slim: The Essential Cuisine Minceur will become a book to live by.
