Midwest Book Review of The Diabetic Pastry Chef, by Stacey Harris
Because everyone deserves sweets!
Just because you or a family member has diabetes does not mean having to give up delicious pastries. Not when you have access to “The Diabetic Pastry Chef,” an impressive 192-page culinary compendium of pastry dishes, each and every one of which is diabetic diet appropriate and kitchen cook friendly.
From breads to cakes to cookies, pies, puddings, and more, “The Diabetic Pastry Chef” offers a wide range of delights that are as palate-pleasing as they are appetite satisfying — some of them are downright gourmet in quality and attraction.
The easy-to-follow recipes range from Sourdough Pancakes; Apple Bundt Cake; Coconut Jellyroll; and Double Chocolate Cookies; to a Graham Cracker Piecrust; Mexican Fruit Pies; Strawberry Panna Cotta; and Lemon Meringue Cups. Each recipe comes with an informative ‘Nutrition Facts’ sidebar.
Of special note is the chapter devoted to ‘Hints and Tips’ that will be especially appreciated by the novice family chef.
Enhanced with an opening chapter about diabetes, another on flours, and a fourth one on sugar and sugar substitutes, “The Diabetic Pastry Chef” is a core collection for community library cookbook shelves in general, and family cookbook collections for anyone having to accommodate the dietary demands and restrictions of diabetes.
