Editorial Reviews

Review

"Joshua Weissman’s The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook is a lovely volume, with fine recipes for any level of cook and exceptional photography by the author. But embedded within it is a philosophy of food that I hope more people will embrace, one of common sense and a full-on bear hug of excellent food cooked at home with abandon. Even more important, this book is an extraordinary story of a young man who transformed himself through food and cooking and is thus a living emblem of the power of food to transform our lives." (Michael Ruhlman, James Beard Award-winning author of Ruhlman'sTwenty, Charcuterie, The Soul of a Chef, and numerous other books on food and cooking)

"Joshua Weissman, the teenage dynamo behind the remarkable Slim Palate blog, has figured out at the tender age of 17 that the secret to a healthy life is eating nourishing home-cooked meals. With his sophisticated palate and discerning eye, Joshua’s recipes and enticing photos will inspire young and old to take charge of their wellness by getting in the kitchen." (Michelle Tam, author of Nom Nom Paleo)

"One of Joshua Weissman’s strengths in The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook is the way he impressively balances his youthfulness with maturity. At only 17, Joshua has created a cookbook filled with sophisticated recipes that people of all ages can appreciate, all while keeping the recipes easy enough for the inexperienced cook to follow.With exceptional photography, delicious recipes, and a unique point of view, The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook is an entertaining read and a worthy resource!" (Mark Sisson, author of The Primal Blueprint)

"I am a big fan of Josh’s food and so happy that he has come out with this cookbook full of healthy, delicious recipes!" (Elana Amsterdam, New York Times best-selling author of Paleo Cooking from Elana's Pantry)

About the Author

Teenager Joshua Weissman is an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular blog Slim Palate (slimpalate.com). At a young age he began to struggle with weight problems, and his health began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him. He was physically and verbally harassed at school, causing frequent bouts of depression. Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua did extensive research and found a way to use whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose weight without sacrificing flavor. He lost more than 100 pounds and is now fit and happy. His affinity for food and cooking compels him to share his kitchen tips and tempting, nourishing recipes with the world. Joshua focuses on the use of whole foods and grass-fed/pastured meats in his cooking and makes note of the empowering benefits of buying locally. He feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from and knowing that it’s properly raised.

Writing a cookbook is not easy. Surviving your teenage years is not easy. Somehow, Joshua Weissman managed both, and while I can't speak for how easily his adolescence is going, this book is a significant accomplishment in and of itself. Couple this with the fact that this book is the product of one young man's journey from obesity to health, and The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook is more than a cookbook - it's an early chronicle of someone destined for great(er) things.

The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook is divided into eight sections: breakfast, poultry, meat, seafood, soups/stews, vegetables, desserts/sweets, and sauces/dressings/dips. Meats, vegetables, and seafood make up the majority of this book. Recipes range from dead simple and easy (Prosciutto Egg Cups) to fairly involved (Herbed Pork Loin) but I don't think any of the recipes are difficult enough to scare away any semi-confident home chef. The recipes do not include a cooking time up front so I would read through them in their entirety before deciding what to tackle - luckily, each recipe is well-crafted, concise, and approachable, so it shouldn't be an issue.

Like many books currently entering the Paleo scene, The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook is testing the limits of what constitutes "Paleo", siding with the camp that believes individuals should make their own minds up about what to eat and what to avoid. In his cookbook, Weissman embraces some forms of dairy (butter, ghee, cream, yogurt) to delicious effect, with substitutions for non-dairy products when appropriate.

The book is gorgeous - peppered with stunning photography across a simple, clean layout. It's very impressive and encourages you to flip through and earmark many of the recipes.

Joshua Weissman has produced an amazing cookbook in The Slim Palate. I received a pre-release copy for review and I've been eating my way through his wonderful recipes. (More about that later.)

This is a new book by Victory Belt Publishing, a press that supports a Real Food diet and the Primal/Paleo lifestyle. The cookbook is a large-size quality publication, 271 pages of delectable, but surprisingly easy-to-prepare recipes and filled with photos by the author. What's even more amazing is that Mr. Weissman is eighteen years old! He tells a story of becoming a foodie at a young age, then abandoning it for a fast-food lifestyle. Over the years he gained weight. Lots of it. Then, tired of the ridicule over his size, he decided to do something about it. His research led him to the Primal/Paleo style of eating. Soon he was losing weight and feeling better, and he started a blog with the purpose of helping others. People took notice and encouraged him to write a cookbook. Enter The Slim Palate, named after his popular blog and featuring not only recipes but lots of helpful information on charting a course to success.

Weissman's writing style is warm and informative, and displays a wisdom beyond his years. Also, unlike many Paleo books, Joshua offers substitutions such as the addition or omission of cheese, sweetening with stevia or honey, thus making a book that you can tailor to your preferred choices.

Each recipe is accompanied by a lovely color photo. I appreciate that the photos aren't the House Beautiful or Martha Stewart idea of perfection, but rather dishes plated in an earthenware bowl atop a length of folded burlap and with a fork your Great Aunt Emily might have used at her table.

I was given this cookbook a week before it's official release as a gift from Joshua. He knew I struggled with finding good gluten-free recipes and everything in Josh's cookbook was "safe" for someone who cannot tolerate glutens. I have made several recipes already - things I never thought I would, or could, make, but I did. Josh has created recipes that are "real" and easy to follow. Everything I have made so far was delicious - loved by my whole family: Braised Moroccan Chicken, Spatchcocked Chicken, Vinegar and Shallot Chicken, Grilled Coconut-Basil Chicken, Chicken Korma, Chicken Leg Quarters with Caramelized Spring Onions and Carrots, Slow Cooker Chicken with Fennel and Capers, Sweet Rosemary Meatballs, Cacao Over Brisket, Thai Fish Cakes, Fragrant Indian Cauliflower "Couscous", Caramelized Butternut Squash with Thyme, Seared Brussels Sprouts with Garlic and Lemon, Grilled Zucchini with Tzatziki Sauce, and Cardamom and Pistachio Chocolate Truffles. Yes - that's a long list and we loved every dish. I would never have guessed that I could make dishes like these. I highly recommend this cookbook whether you are following a Paleo diet or not. I knew nothing about Paleo before reading Josh's cookbook. Oh - and the pictures of the food are incredible (Josh did all of his own pictures - very talented) - I love to see what a dish should (or could) look like before making it. Thank you Josh Weissman.

I’ve known Josh Weissman for a few years now, and I can’t brag on him enough. He has a thirst for knowledge on photography and cooking that really comes through in everything that he makes. He’s the mind behind the blog Slim Palate, which has always floored me with the crazy talent he has. Oh, and Josh has lost 100 POUNDS on Paleo. You want to know what makes this all the more impressive?? HE’S 18! Yes, 18. In fact, he’s about to graduate high school this fall. I don’t know about you, but I was definitely not writing cookbooks when I was in high school.

Josh’s story is so relatable, and I love him for that - he’s opened his world to us and brought us in on his journey. Aside from taking control of his health so early in life, Josh has shown us that there are no excuses. Sure, most of us have full-time jobs, kids, other stuff that keeps us busy, but we don’t have to write papers, study for tests, etc etc. Yes, it’s all relative. But, seriously - I wasn’t this dedicated in high school at all.

Now for the recipes. What kills me is Josh’s natural photography skills. Most of us in the food blogger world have practiced for years to hone our photo abilities. I mean, go look back at some of my early recipes...actually, don’t. Well, look at the recipes but skip over the photos :D Back to Josh - I’m floored by his photographs. He’s working so hard to bring you all something that looks amazing and tastes just as it looks.

If you’re not sold by the photos alone, then the recipes will get you on board. There’s something about his recipes that are so easy to follow and leave you with delicious results. I just flipped opened the book to page 104: “Rosemary and Coriander-Crusted Rack of Lamb” - the photo makes my mouth water and my stomach growl...
