Techniques of Healthy Cooking is the newest, most comprehensive guide to healthy cooking in a professional setting. The book includes straightforward information on nutritional basics like types of nutrients and how they function in the body, reading and using food labels, caloric intake recommendations, and planning recipes and menus around various dietary guidelines. Also included is detailed information on ingredients, serving sizes, food safety from preparation to plating, and nutrition-related conditions like diabetes, obesity, and hypertension. In the "Healthy Menu" chapter, chefs will learn to create menu objectives, figure out what to emphazise and what to limit in menu planning, and develop nutritious menus for various operations and special needs. An extensive glossary explains basic terms and concepts, and the book provides 300 delicious recipes - 100 all-new - including nutrition information and optional modifications. Recipes include meats, fish, poultry, vegetables, fruits, grains, cereals, pasta, nuts and legumes, soups, sauces, salads, appetizers, breads, sandwiches, pizzas, breakfasts, and desserts. They are accompanied by vibrant full-color photography throughout, including 150 plated food shots and 50 dynamic process shots that demonstrate the tools, equipment, and techniques of healthy cooking. The step-by-step photos and recipes will inspire chefs to get creative with nutritional cooking, while the plated food shots beautifully illustrate that a dish can be exciting, great-tasting, and healthy all at once.
