Paleo Perfected: A Revolution in Eating Well with 150 Kitchen-Tested Recipes
If you put the words Paleo Cookbooks in a good search engine, you will come up with a half million links. That doesn’t mean there are a half million Paleo cookbooks, but it sometimes seems that way. So to find one that stands out is a real treat. This book stands head and shoulders above many on the market. The recipes are creative and really fresh and different. It opens with a very thorough description of the needs for a Paleo kitchen including the basics, ingredients to swap for other ingredients, and much more. The 150 recipes in this book are divided into sections containing Appetizers and Snacks; Breakfast Favorites; Poultry; Beef, Pork, Lamb, and More; Seafood; Vegetable Mains; and Vegetable Sides followed up by nutritional information and conversions and equivalents. Each recipe starts with a paragraph about why the recipe works — an explanation about why it is particularly right for the paleo lifestyle and how it was developed. This is followed by an ingredients list and step-by-step instructions. Some of the recipes also have variations that can be made or tips.
This well-designed and well-written cookbook should become a staple in any Paleo kitchen.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
