The reason I can't bring myself to give this cookbook 5 starts is probably the same reason that other reviewers did give this book 5 stars. There is something in the way Shauna James Ahern writes that tends to rub me the wrong way. Ahern and her family live on an island off the coast of Seattle, and believe me when I say you will not forget this as you page through her cookbook. A lot of the seasonal produce, small farmers, and food community available to the Ahern's is simply not feasible to most people. That would be fine, except the tone of Ahern's writing suggests that she has discovered a great way to live, and really wishes other people could as well. WIthout realizing that it is impossible for everybody to live on a charming island with a goat cheese CSA. Another example of this tone is in the way Ahern cannot just say she prepared lamb, it is always local lamb from a farmer she trusts. If Ahern wants to eat this way and advocate that others eat that way, it is entirely her own business. But she seems to want to be the "every day cookbook that anybody can use" and the "locally grown, organic only, purveyor I can trust" cookbook. I'm not sure the merging of these two belief systems is possible, and as a result of this effort, I found the cookbook to be a tad condescending.
The more pedestrian dishes (such as Carnitas, Chili-Lime Shrimp and Roasted Chicken) can be found in any gluten-inclusive cookbook. Plus, measurements for the GF items are in grams and require a scale. I get it, the author explains why a scale is necessary. But the kitchen scale I've been using faithfully for 20 years measures in ounces.
Bottom Line: This book might inspire a specialty chef in Portland (put a bird on it) but not the mere cook who's scrambling to make a GF diet seem like normal food. HUGE disappointment.
PS Her blog is useless too.
I don't recommend this book at all. Too many GOOD cookbooks written by people with imagination and a real flare for food and recipes that delight - we don't need to settle for this type of cookbook and substandard eating experience anymore.
