Happy Wednesday! Today’s “Cookbook Corner” may seem like an unusual selection for me…but before you start to wonder – let me tell you – I was really impressed with this book!
ALSO let me say – I ALWAYS try and be POSITIVE with my “Cookbook Corners”. No matter the book – I always try and find the positive. Sure there are books out there that I don’t like – I don’t review those… Ha! 😉
“The Paleo Chef” By: Pete Evans
At first, I honestly wasn’t sure about this book – but I really really enjoy it. It’s given me a new “world” of food and food culture to explore, and isn’t that the purpose of “creating” something? To give someone a thought or a “lead” into something totally new and different…? This book did that for me.
Pete Evans has created not only a gorgeous book – but a book with amazing recipes and details on a lifestyle that may just be beneficial to everyone.
This cookbook provides recipes that are fast, easy and flavorful – and I don’t think anyone can ask anymore than that from a cookbook.
The book is recipes that are all gluten-free, grain free and dairy free. I know…close your mouths – and THIS coming from ME!? The “King of Butter” as some of my friends put it… 😉 Yes – and here is why…
The recipes in the book are easy to prepare, and don’t really require anything that you can’t find at your local grocery store. Almost every grocery store now has an “organic” section – so start there.
I admit that I sometimes browse that area, just looking for ideas and inspiration – and this cookbook is filled with tons of ideas and inspirations for you to uncover.
How do these recipes sound…
“Hazelnut and Banana Pancakes” (page 13), “Stir-Fried Beef with Basil, Chile and Fried Eggs” (page 21), “Sweet Potato Fries with Rosemary and Sage” (page 42), “Cauliflower Rice” (page 61), “Oysters with Ginger and Green Onions” (page 78), “Wild Salmon with Beet Salad and Fennel” (page 98), “Fish and Chips” (page 106), “Japanese Crispy Chicken with Miso Mayonnaise” (page 119), “Cauliflower Fried Rice” (page 128), “Meatballs in Chipotle Sauce” (page 147), “Chocolate Brownies” (page 176) and “Mark Sisson’s Chocolate Bark” (page 180)!
I mean – really, how delicious do those recipes sound!? And there are tons more too!
I actually DO have recipes marked to try in this book – and I will update this post as I make them. Most of them are in the “dessert” section – but wouldn’t it be interesting to at least live this kind of lifestyle at least once or twice a week? I am going to branch out and learn more about different food “lifestyles” and see where they take me. I really find them to be very interesting.
