Written by award-winning cook and food scientist Sandra Nowlan, Delicious Dash Flavours is a full-colour cookbook that shows how to follow a proven, drug-free method of reducing and controlling high blood pressure without sacrificing gastronomic pleasure. Sandra has selected delicious recipes from Canada's top chefs, which she has modified to reduce fat, cholesterol and salt while maintaining all the delectable flavour.

These recipes and suggested menus follow the guidelines of the DASH diet. DASH, which stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, is a diet developed through studies initiated by the U.S. National Institutes of Health. It has been proven in extensive clinical trials to be as effective as medication in lowering blood pressure. DASH emphasizes a wholesome, balanced diet low in fat and sodium and high in potassium.

Delicious Dash Flavours contains a wide range of recipes for appealing appetizers, salads, soups, entrées, vegetables, breads and desserts. Among these culinary treats are: Charbroiled Digby Scallops with Citrus Vinaigrette, Coq au Vin with Braised Greens, Fettuccini alla Marinera, Blueberry Cobbler and Poached Pears in Red Wine. Each recipe has been adapted and tested for home cooking.
