Bringing the Spa Home: Canyon Ranch. It’s late winter, gray, and dreary outside. This is another dusty book from my William-Sonoma days. My store hosted a cooking class featuring some Canyon Ranch recipes and I was given an apron (too small; I must have had spa-brain that day) as a parting gift. That I can remember counting) We’ll see if it’s been worth the weight and effort for hauling this book around

I open to Jeanne Jones’ personal and friendly Introduction. Ms. Jones always loved to cook and went to several French cooking schools. She liked to entertain, holding small dinner parties for friends, filled with good foods and with no thought to calories. Her life changed with a shock: she found out she had diabetes.

Recipe is from the cookbook, "Canyon Ranch Cooking: Bringing the Spa Home", by Canyon Ranch & Jeanne Jones. Preheat the oven to 450°F Lightly spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange the potato wedges on one side, leaving enough room for the fillets, and spray them with the cooking spray. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, or until golden brown and tender. While the potatoes are baking, combine the flour, bread crumbs, and pepper in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl lightly beat the egg white. Dip the fish fillets in the egg white, then coat both sides with the flour mixture.

The two Canyon Ranch spas are rated No.1 and No.2 (they alternate positions) over and over by readers of the Conde Nast Traveler. Part of the allure are their stunning locations -- in the hills of Tucson, Arisona, and in the Berkshire mountains in Massachusetts -- but one of the best parts of a visit to Canyon Ranch is the food.

Jeanne Jones developed and supervised the Canyon Ranch menu, and in Canyon Ranch Cooking,  she offers everyone a chance to eat the spas' low-cal, low-fat delicious food. The recipes all have detailed nutritional breakdowns to help you plan a healthy meal with a lot of variety. Perhaps best of all are the tips and techniques to help enhance flavor without adding calories. Why does spa food taste so good when nearly all the fat has been removed? Jones reveals all the secrets -- such as adding citrus or vinegar to lift "flat" flavors; grilling over aromatic wood; marinating meat and vegetables; cooking at low temperatures for long periods to "marry" flavors; roasting rapidly for crispy crusts and tender interiors; using dried fruit for rich and creamy fat-free sauces; and much, much more. Try the Canyon Ranch Guacamole, Osso Bucco and Cheese Enchiladas; enjoy Chocolate Mint Cake and Cherry Streusel Pie. This is not a cuisine of deprivation -- the food is wonderful, and the recipes for making it easy and sensible.

This book can't give you a workout or a hike, but it does tell you how to plan your own spa weekend at home, with suggestions for exercise, relaxation, even theme parties for special Saturday night dining. The wonderful recipes and the luscious photographs are here to delight and inspire. With Canyon Ranch Cooking, the spa comes to you.

I have thoroughly enjoyed every recipe I have tried from this beautiful book, and I have tried several.
The baked fish and chips impressed some of my non-healthy eating guests so much they wanted the recipe and plan to never deep fry again. The price may seem high, but was worth it for some of the unusual techniques alone. I never thought of smoking food with tea inside of a steamer basket.
There are two reasons I did not give the book 5 stars. One, because I do not like the hardback format - this is a cookbook to be used, not some pretty picture book to lay on the coffee table. Secondly, the book has margarine listed as an ingredient listed in several recipes. The latter is a very small complaint that is actually addressed by the author in the introduction, apparently Canyon Ranch switched away from margarine while the book went to press, and the introduction lists proper substitutions. Maybe both will be corrected if there is to be a second edition.
I highly recommend this healthy eating cookbook - for its delicious foods, beautiful photos and layout, unusual techniques, and proper nutritional analysis with each recipe.

We might have turned the corner. So many of us are now buying into changing our diets for the better, and cookbooks such as this beautiful one are great helps.
For here is outstanding, healthy and good tasting dishes that look great as well. I especially find here some wonderful main entree type recipes which are "relatively" easy to prepare if one has good sources available: "Seared Ahi Tuna on Warm Potato and Leek Salad with Sun-dried Tomato Dressing"; "Escallopes of Salmon with Horseradish Sauce"; "Mahimahi With Basmati Rice Cakes and Napa Cabbage Slaw"; "Raspberry Cornish Hens"; "Marinated Duck With Blueberry-Maidera Sauce"; "Zenzero Grilled Lamb Chops with Cucumber Sauce";
Of course there are yummy salads, soups, appetizers, desserts, shakes and smoothies---all healthy oriented, with complete nutrional breakouts for each recipe, and great color photography. Also included are Menu Ideas and Weekend Canyon Ranch Style Outing.

I recently purchased this book and have been very happy with the recipes I have made. Over the holidays, I cooked corn bisque and teriyaki steak and they were big hits. It was great my family did not know how healthy they were! The Corn Bisque, for example, uses pureed potatoes to give its smooth texture; you only put several tablespoons of cream in at the end for the creaminess.
The book gives detailed ingredient information along with calorie, fat, carb counts. There are helpful tips on preparing the dishes as well.
The only gripe I have is in the format--it is a hardback book that doesn't stay open while using it. But I will get a cookbook holder and will keep on trying more recipes in this book.

This is my second Canyon Ranch cookbook and I must say it seems a bit dated. The food is delicious but such an old edition ( even though I bought it new).

I love this cookbook. T'm always looking for healthy recipes that taste good and aren't too, um, "out there." I checked this book out of the library on two seperate occasions and renewed it each time as well. When it was time to return it again, I decided I needed my own copy to keep. The recipes are tasty and people won't even know its spa food when you serve it to them, unless you tell them. The pictures are beautiful, and the recipes clear and easy to follow.

Love this book. I live near this establishment but saw this book at a local restaurant and had to have it. Would recommend it to anyone.

The cookbook arrived quickly. It's a little worn, but definately in good shape. Most importantly,
I now have a wonderful cookbook! Great for the price!
I know people who go to spas, and they have mixed reactions about the food at Canyon Ranch. Some say that they starve to death because the portions are so small, and others claim that the entire eating experience is out of this world. Although I've not been to Canyon Ranch, I must say that this cookbook inspires me to think seriously about it.
First of all the layout is truly a graphic masterpiece. The photographs and information are laid out in a very logical, colorful and exciting way. The visuals make you want to rush out to the store and start cooking as soon as you open the book.
This book truly offers healthy food with real taste. The top choice for menus that we've tried in our house were: the duck breasts with blueberry sauce, spaeztle (German noodles) and braised cabbage. Dessert was blackberry cobbler.
Preparation is clearly spelled out, and fairly easy in comparison to other gourmet type recipes in the cookbook market presently. I managed to successfully prepare this menu for 8-10 people, and without any rehearsals!
The duck breasts were amazingly delicious (and very expensive to make - but with a little creativity, you could avoid the additional costs meat-wise), the spaetzle was weird in texture and taste but quite good and a hit -- beats the usual rice tenfold! -- and the cabbage was a great surprise and the tastiest favorite of all the various foods offered (guests were looking for seconds and thirds). The blackberry cobbler (which could be done with any kind of berry) was light, not too rich, and a huge hit. It has replaced my usual calorie and fat laiden recipes for fast desserts and it impressive to look at as the grande finale!
This menu worked well with the ten and twelve year old taste testers. One hated the blueberry sauce over the duck and the other loved it. However, they heartily ate everything else (especially the cabbage and cobbler!).
Making multiple courses (for 8-10 people)was not a problem for this menu, as the multiplications of the ingredie! nts added up without any problems. If you have a hefty appetite, be certain to make more than you planned to. The final servings are on the small side for such a lengthy prep time. (I believe in leftovers after working in the kitchen for so long!)
The recipes take some time to plan for (many call for elaborate marinades which add the flavor sans fat), and most definitely are not "comfort" foods, although it is a great book to browse while sitting in front of the fireplace as the recipes are perfect for the hot summer ahead!
Note: This cookbook is a 10 except for the convenience of preparation and overall cost of ingredients which caused me to lower my review to a 9.
