THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

ummer is not the time of
year for crash dieting. In
fact : - ,
is neve r21
good time or crash—dieting.
Weight lost in this fashion is
almost always regained as soon
as one "goes off" such a diet.
. Instead, it is much better to re-
medy poor eating habits, and lose
excess weight gradually. -For in-
stance, cutting down on fat and
increasing complex carbo-
hydrates is a major step in the
right direction.
Slim Wok Cookery by Ceil Dyer
(HP Books) is a relatively new
cookbook with a specialized uten-
sil well suited for it. The author is
a prolific cookbook writer whose
credits include the best-selling
Wok Cookery.
In Slim Wok Cookery, Ms. Dyer
shows how to use a wok to prepare
an interesting variety of low-
calorie dishes that are by no
means limited to those with an
Oriental flavor. Actually, many of
the recipes have been inspired by
an international array of cuisines.
For instance, there are
Tabbouleh-Stuffed Mushrooms,
Linguine with Mushroom Sauce,
Chicken with Avgolemono Sauce,
Indian Keema with Peas, and
Cajun Rice, to name just a few.
In addition to main dishes
featuring meat, poultry, eggs, and
fish, the cookbook includes a sur-
prising number of appealing ap-
petizers, salads and vegetable
salad side dishes, and even des-
serts. All the recipes are portion-
controlled so that each serving
contains no more than about 350
calories.
Almost none of the recipes
mixes milk with meat; however,
some do call for trayfe meat or
shellfish. In many such cases, it
would be easy to substitute kosher
meats or fish. .
In addition to the approx-
imately 175 recipes, Slim Wok
Cookery includes sections on
"Cutting Techniques for Stir-
Frying,' "Cleaning and Caring
for Your Wok" (which also tells
how to season the surface of a
wok), and "Cooking Techniques"
such as stir-frying, stir-steaming
in a dry wok, steaming and poach-
ing.
Following are a few recipes re-
printed from Slim Wok Cookery:
