Cuisine Minceur

A system of cooking, popularised (and possibly invented) by Michel Guerard who still include it as a choice at his 3 Michelin starred restaurant at Eugenie-Les-Bains.

The idea is to cook delicious food with a vastly reduced calorie content. Flour, often only a device to hold suspended fat, is replaced by 'Fromage Blanc' (a very low fat cheese).

This method of cooking shouldn't be confused with 'Cuisine Nouvelle', which was more of a style of arranging food in small, delicious, quantities - than a diet change. See 'Fromage Blanc'

If you enjoy cooking take a minute to look at ‘Simon Scrutton French Cookery Classes’ on Google – and learn how to make top class bistro-style dishes. Suitable for beginners upwards. Small classes.
