I've had the pleasure of trying some of Simone's recipes, cooked by Simone herself! Her lamb dish was the best I've ever had. Simone has a true talent in the kitchen. Her recipes are healthy, flavorful, and perfectly balanced. I am thrilled to be able to re-create Simone's dishes at home!

BEST PALEO PIZZA DOUGH EVER!!!
Seriously, she cracked the code. I had lost all hope in the potential for a palatable Paleo pizza but I decided to try the recipe anyway. It completely blew my mind. The book is great for a host of other reasons and recipes, but in all honesty, I would happily have paid twice the price just for the pizza recipe.
I just love it, and here's why:
1. The photography is beautiful and inspiring. A must for me.
2. There's information in here that can actually teach even experienced cooks.
3. There's great paleo recipes that aren't your usual "pot roast with turnips instead of potatoes or roasted chicken with chili marinade." I've spent a good part of the day looking through this book and there's tons of recipes I can't wait to make. What I'm excited about are there are unusual (but not weird) combinations that I wouldn't have thought of, e.g., cauliflower soup with lime/roasted sunchokes/lamb stew with tomatoes, olives, citrus, etc.).
4. Ms. Miller gets that folks trying to go paleo miss "crunch." I cannot wait to try to plantain shoestring fries (!!!), plantain tortillas, and her recipes for crackers looks great too. Also in the bread/crunch category of things I haven't successfully let go of: pizza. She swears her crust recipe is approved by New Yorkers, and I'm going to give it a try this week.
5. I love the suggested menu combos in the back of the book.
I'll update my review when I've made 5 things, but, I will say, this is the first cookbook review I've ever written, and I have over 100 cookbooks (I've pared down!).Read more ›
We all have cookbooks on our shelves because we like to idea of making something delicious and new. But how many of us actually cook new recipes from them? And how often do we try something new? The reason I rate this book so highly is because this book presents the recipes, most of which have a relatively small number of ingredients - in a way that actually motivates you to cook them. There is a photo of all the ingredients next to each list, and very clear and well outlined simple steps to making gourmet recipes with subtle and complex flavors. This has the practical effect of empowering the reader to actually cook the recipes. I haven't seen anything like it before, and I think Simone is onto something very enlightening here because The Zenbelly Cookbook not only gives you the instructions to make TASTY food, but also presents them in a way that gives you the encouragement and confidence to execute successfully.
As others have mentioned already the photos in the book are lovely and the layout is clear and easy to use however what I think sets this book apart from other paleo cookbooks and other cookbooks in general is that the recipes really deliver in the flavor department. So often when I cook from a recipe I will alter it quite a bit after its first use to coax more flavor, that has not been necessary with any of the recipes from this book so far and that really speaks to the quality of this book. I can't wait to try more of Simone's amazing recipes and this may be the first cookbook where I try every last one. I will be purchasing some as gifts for christmas this year and feel confident that the recipients will adore it as much as I do.
