Take one world-renowned heart surgeon, add a leading nutritionist, blend in the creative talents of the chefs of some fine restaurants, simmer for a while, and you've got an outstanding new cookbook, one that will generously serve America's 5 million heart patients, as well as the health-conscious public at large. The cookbook contains over 350 recipes, categorized under lunch and dinner menus, all designed to provide healthy, gourmet fare consistent with current medical recommendations regarding fat and sodium intake. Each recipe has been computer-analyzed for nutrient content, including calories, carbohydrates, protein, fat, cholesterol, saturated fat, minerals and fiber; and this information is clearly provided. Unlike most special-diet cookbooks, these recipes are not bland or boring. There are American, Chinese, French, Italian, and Mexican creations that sparkle with appetite appeal. And for the information hungry, the authors have written several helpful chapters on the relationship between diet and heart disease. A fine contribution toward America's better health.
