You probably wouldn't expect to find dozens of healthy
recipes in Desserts Around the World. Desserts, after all, are a reward for having already eaten up what's good for you. But there are a number of low-fat surprises. For every Fried Bananas with Cinnamon Sugar (a Brazilian calorie-booster), there are alternatives like African Fruit Salad (large papaya, mangoes and pineapple) or Yogurt Pie (a Greek dish with honey and ricotta). The book costs pound;5.99 from Turnaround, Unit 3, Olympia Trading Estate, Coburg Road, London N22 6TZ.
