Weight Watchers' New International Cookbook

Weight Watchers International, Other Dutton Books $18.95 (384p) ISBN 978-0-453-01011-5
To its first Weight Watchers International Cookbook the organization now adds a follow-up volume offering, from more than 40 countries, some 300 recipes which include many of the exotic foods usually regretfully eschewed by serious dieters. The recipes, this time more closely paralleling their originals than in the earlier cookbook, were developed on a more elastic ""food exchange program,'' one of the underlying planks of the regimen. In addition, each recipe is accompanied by per-serving counts of calories, protein and other food properties. By following directions meticulously the dieter will be able to enjoy dishes like African yam salad, Scottish potato-and-cabbage casserole, Irish soda bread, Swiss fondue, and desserts like Czechoslovakian cherry pie and chocolate-raspberry liqueur fondue. Or the reader might opt for Boston baked beans, Fiji lentil soup or Russian pirozhki. Photos not seen by PW. December 13
