Extra features of this book focus on subjects including raw foods, umami (the 'fifth taste') and nifty kitchen tools, because it's not just our food that can lighten up, it's our whole approach to cooking.The balance in Jill's cooking has shifted towards fish, fruit, salads, grains and veggies. She still looks to provide big flavours and creamy textures but without the cream, the pastry, refined sugars and animal fats. The recipes are essentially simple and easy to prepare, with tempting dishes such as Tagliatelle with Salmon, Lemon and Rocket; Grilled Chicken with Salsa Verde; Japanese Mushroom Noodles; and, Pineapple and Coconut Souffle.
