This is a gorgeous cookbook. I like its unique shape (8"x 6.5") and feel (nubbly hardcover without a dust jacket). The photography is sublime and speaking of "lime," the lime green ribbon bookmark is cool, too. But, these are all superficial reasons to love a cookbook.
Even though the title insists this is food for "athletes" there is a little bias towards cycling. The language is more about riding and less about generic non-specific-sport tough workouts.
In truth, the recipes translate for any individual participating in an activity that burns many, many calories. And speaking of calories, this is not a weight-loss, get-thin cookbook. Calories are communicated as "energy units" and are unapologetically abundant. They didn't skimp on the fat or carbs in an effort to slim an athlete down but instead, calories are pumped up to keep an athlete active & to avoid the bonk. And - just in case you start to gain weight using this cookbook and get all upset there is a disclaimer right up front that states portion sizes are larger than normal. You've been warned.
Another truth to be prepared for is the tendency towards rice-based dishes. Born in the Philipines, Allan Lim honors his culture with many rice-cooker dishes. Most of the hand-held recipes have a sushi rice base. My advice is to experiment with different varieties of rice if a specific kind isn't necessary. For many of the dishes a sticky rice is called for to hold the finished product together. ( )
