So when I saw that my library had a copy of this cookbook of Italian paleo recipes, I grabbed it immediately. We like the cookbook overall... but it probably won't earn a spot in my "Now I must buy this to own it forever" library.
As with many cookbooks, there's a long introductory section that might be worth reading once (in this case, about her food travels in Italy rather than Why Paleo) and ignored thereafter. The bulk of the book is given to chapters for antipasti; pizze (pizzas); first courses (including side dishes soups); main dishes; dessert. Every recipe is accompanied with a photo, which I know matters to some people. I also appreciate that each recipe has prep time (15 minutes) and cook time (10 minutes) to help with dinner planning.
Because paleo encompasses several foods you may-or-may-not eat, it's worth noting that her accepted fats include lard, butter, or ghee interchangeably; sauce ingredients suggest "coconut milk or cream;' cheese usually is treated as an option; and she sweetens primarily with honey. (I'm not saying which ingredients you ought to use, simply trying to give you enough info to decide if this a good match for your choices.Read more ›
First of all, to make regular "non-Paleo" dishes into Paleo dishes does not take genius, however, it's great to have a recipe all put together and you don't have to bother substituting ingredients. But this cookbook is really all dressed up to look stunning, but the bottom line is that it is a beginners cookbook and a disappointment. I'll probably return it because it is not teaching me anything new and a lot of the recipes that I would need, like pizza crust, is in my other cookbooks and the meat dishes are extremely plain like all of the recipes are; but like I said, it's "dressed up" to look pretty but is not in the least substantial. Now I also have "Against All Grain" by Danielle Walker and this is a very comprehensive cookbook with dozens of usable and unique recipes that I will refer to again and again. Sarah's book sadly has nothing for me. You know these big color pictures of roasted garlic, pickled vegetables, cabbage salad and vegetable broth, beef and chicken broth seem to be what fascinate people. You see, it's filled with unnecessary recipes that you can get from you grandma's old cookbook and it's not adding anything to the Paleo community. I also have "Well Fed" and this is a really good cook book too but it also gives you a format to work with if you are new to Paleo, which I am.Read more ›

I have all of Sarah Fragoso's cook books and LOVE them all. So I thought I would love this one just the same. I found the recipes took longer to make and wasn't too impressed. Read morePublished 6 months ago by K. Johnson
This book is not just a cookbook, but a pretty good travelogue, too. Sarah takes the real Italian classics and gives them a Paleo spin. There are lots of photos. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Sandra L Meyer
