Author(s): Macri Irena
From the creator of the hugely popular foodie blog Eat Drink Paleo comes this stunning cookbook, filled with delectable, paleo-inspired recipes. Passionate paleo-enthusiast Irena Macri draws on her love of world cuisines and all-natural ingredients to produce gourmet recipes that were created, taste-tested and photographed by the cook herself. From hearty feasts to healthy snacks, Eat Drink Paleo Cookbook will inspire seasoned paleo followers and curious connoisseurs alike. All recipes are free from grains, gluten, processed sugar and other no-nos of the paleo and primal philosophy. Far from being restrictive, they showcase the rich flavours, varied ingredients and fun, inventive cooking that can be enjoyed as part of any healthy lifestyle. The book takes home-cooks on a real-food journey from breakfast (hazelnut pancakes with blood orange syrup, anyone?) through to dessert (did someone say chilli chocolate mousse?). There are super-tasty dinners, glamorous garden produce and sauces, sides and drinks. Complete with an introduction to paleo nutrition and philosophy; a handy inventory of foods to focus on and avoid; and user-friendly recipes and measurements, Eat Drink Paleo Cookbook is a must-have for the modern-day hunter-gatherer.
