This book will add a good set of dishes to those who feel passion for cooking and never follow the recipe 100%. It's written for cooking artists who want to cook something completely new for their friends and families. You will hardly find anything non-casual or everyday cooking in this book. Neither will you find some quick and simple routine dishes. Every recipe is a set of planing, passion and skills.
Every recipe is followed by a short story of the author's acquaintance with the dish and what was the most interesting thing about the dish that prompted the author to include it into the book
The recipes are a bit different without being over the top difficult or including too many unrecognisable or unsourceable (of course that's a word) ingredients. There are recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, sides and desserts. They all look delicious and there are certainly some for those of us who might avoid the grain products but grains are certainly included in abundance.
Some delicious looking and sounding recipes that I am going to try are: Healthy Smoked Hock Comfort Soup (will have to consider my options when it comes to the barley, lentils and beans but nothing is impossible); The Pantry's Chicken Caesar Salad (skip the bread); Manu's Smoked Rainbow Trout Salad; Warm Asparagus Salad with Buffalo Mozzarella and Cherry Tomatoes (Natalie Kringoudis shared this recipe here); and there is also a great Eggs Benedict alternative, and I adore Eggs Benedict...
As you might expect this is a very attractive book with lots of lovely pictures. There is also a little intro from Pete for each recipe which adds a personal touch. If you have room on your non Paleo/Primal/Low Carb/Weston A. Price etc cookbook shelf then this would make a nice addition. Or it would make a lovely gift.
I offer a 5 star guarantee to the paleo-ified version...
