Library Journal Review

Moore, diagnosed with diabetes at age 35, has worked in some of London's best restaurants and was consulting director of food at the Sydney Opera House. This cookbook for controlling blood sugar contains 65 elegant but easy recipes and an abundance of gorgeous full-color photographs. Illustrating that cooking to balance blood sugar doesn't have to be bland, Moore includes mouthwatering recipes for light meals, soups, main dishes, desserts, and snacks. He also shares tips for balancing food types. Measurements are given in both ounces and grams to make the recipes accessible to any cook, anywhere. VERDICT This cookbook will be enjoyed alike by those living with diabetes and by foodies.-Lisa Felix, Mishawaka-Penn-Harris P.L., IN (c) Copyright 2011.
