Entertaining Light & Easy

By Laurie Burrows Grad

Entertaining Light & Easy  
Having company used to mean pulling out the killer recipes—literally. Fat-marbled steaks, cheese-rich sauces, and desserts oozing butter and cream were the order of the day. But you don't have to load up on the fat and calories when guests come to call. Entertaining Light & Easy will show you how to prepare absolutely delicious meals and fabulous desserts that are good for you, are easy to prepare, and don't take a lot of time.

Laurie Burrows Grad, who has spent the last fifteen years writing and talking about light and easy cooking, serves up more than 175 taste-tempting recipes that use lower fat and calorie alternatives for high fat and calorie ingredients, and fat-reducing cooking methods. There are recipes for every occasion: festive brunches, holiday celebrations, elegant parties, and casual feasts.

Now you and your guests can savor dishes such as Rack of Lamb with Pistachio-Mint Crumb Crust and Tangy Mint Sauce, Shrimp Risotto with Peas and Red Pepper, or Roast Butterflied Turkey Breast with Orange Mustard Glaze and Raisin Bread Stuffing, with accompaniments of Crusty Light Mashed Potatoes with Roasted Garlic or Cranberry Conserve with Cassis without worrying about your waistline. Indulge without guilt in Lemon-Yogurt Waffles with Raspberry-Orange Syrup, Mocha Pudding Cake, or Summer Pudding. Whatever you serve, these are dishes that make any occasion special.

Entertaining Light and Easy was nominated for a 1998 James Beard Award in the Entertaining and Special Occasions Category, and also was a nominee in Australia's 1999 Jacob's Creek World Food Media Awards in the KitchenAid Best Hard Cover Recipe Book.

Laurie Burrows Grad is currently a restaurant columnist for Buzz magazine. She was the food editor of Los Angeles magazine for seventeen years, and her articles and recipes have appeared in Good Housekeeping, Redbook, Woman's Day, Food & Wine, and many other publications. She was the host of the cable-television show "Laurie Cooks Light & Easy" and the author of several books, including Make It Easy, Make It Light. She lives in Los Angeles, California.
