"In her signature trusted voice, Danielle Walker offers a new classic filled with expert tips and recipes that achieve glory while being entirely grain-free and Paleo. Even if, like me, this way of eating isn't a lifestyle for you, nothing feels like it's missing from these tried-and-true recipes. My body feels great, and my taste buds do, too. The pictures alone make you want to dive head first into her delicious world of abundance to celebrate all year long."
—Daphne Oz, TV host and bestselling author
"Danielle Walker is nothing short of inspiring. Rather than allow autoimmune disease and food limitations to sideline her, she instead tackled them head-on, creating an approach to food that's not only sustainable for her and her family, but also mouthwateringly delicious! Her new collection of special occasion recipes is a treasure trove for anyone---food sensitive or otherwise---who enjoys beautiful food."
—Ree Drummond, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks
“Danielle is a master of her craft and this book is no exception. This is grain-free entertaining at its best and, most importantly, has the whole family in mind so no one is left out of an important celebration.”
—Lisa Leake, #1 New York Times bestselling author of 100 Days of Real Food
“Danielle Walker understands the incredible power that food has to help and to heal. Her inviting, vibrant recipes welcome everyone to the table with generosity and deliciousness. That's something we can all celebrate!”
—Mark Hyman, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Eat Fat, Get Thin
“All of us form memories around food. So when we have to change our diet, it’s easy to fear that we’ll lose our ability to connect and take part in traditions. Danielle Walker understands this so well, and with 125 mouthwatering recipes, she proves that no matter what we eat (or don’t eat), we never have to give up the joy of celebrating with food.”
—Andie Mitchell, New York Times bestselling author of It Was Me All Along and Eating in the Middle
"In 125 recipes, Walker show cooks how to prepare holiday favorites while meeting paleo-style requirements, transforming them into something as treasured as any traditional dish."
"Gluten- and dairy-free eaters, this is the fall cookbook for you. Walker shows you how to create delicious, comfort food classics—like Thanksgiving stuffing and vanilla birthday cupcakes—without using grains, dairy or gluten."
"Danielle Walker has a grain-free, whole-foods based approach to cooking, and her Whole30 recipes have been longtime favorites of our community. In her new cookbook Celebrations, Danielle provides grain-free, allergy-friendly recipes for celebrating life's milestones and special moments. This cookbook is the perfect compliment to support your food freedom in your life after Whole30, as you enjoy time spent around the table with family and friends."
- Melissa Hartwig, New York Times bestselling author
"Healthy options for holidays and special gatherings never tasted so good!"

For as great as the Internet is, it becomes a game of roulette when you’re searching for special occasion recipes – recipes you’re going to make once and don’t necessarily have time to test beforehand. That’s what is great about Danielle Walker’s recipes – they are foolproof. I have been Paleo for almost three years and have made countless recipes from her website and now all three of her cookbooks, and have yet to have a recipe fail me!
Every possible event from New Year’s Eve, to a baby shower are covered in Celebrations; big meals (with the recipes scaled appropriately to save you the math) and small plates and seasonal treats are included, with gorgeous photos of every recipe throughout.
The recipes I’ve tried so far have all been winners:
- Buffalo wings with herb ranch dressing (p. 53)
- Chile garlic rapini (p. 80)
- Lemon bars (p. 117) – this was one of my favorite desserts as a child and I’m so glad to have it back in my life!
- Skillet “corn” bread (p. 131)
- Margarita (p. 135) – yes, really!
- Mini “corn” dog muffins (p. 143)
- Heirloom tomato, watermelon, and basil salad (p. 168)
- Special sauce (p. 172) – great on burgers, eggs, pretty much anything!
- Blackened salmon (p. 177) – great as chicken, too
- Truffled bacon deviled eggs (p. 187)
- Butternut sage carbonara (p. 224)
- Roasted garlic mashed cauliflower (p. 237)
- Pumpkin spice latte (p. 263) – works as a creamer, too!
- Blender bread (p. 323)
- Whipped coconut cream (p. 331)
The only things missing – and this is as someone spoiled by Danielle’s first two cookbooks – are clear cooktimes at the beginning of each recipe and a picture index of the recipes.
These formatting preferences aside, Celebrations is the essential special occasion resource for anyone following a Paleo template.
And just like her other two books, she includes an extensive ingredient glossary and substitutions and her recommended kitchen gear. The recipe index in the back makes for simple holiday meal planning. You can access all the nutritional data for each recipe online.One of my favorite little perks- this cookbook LAYS FLAT ON IT’S OWN. Which is basically mind-boggling to me and makes cooking so much easier.
Even though the recipes are geared towards holidays, they are simple enough and delicious enough to make as part of an every day meal as well. These have been added to our regular rotation. My family doesn't eat paleo or have any dietary needs, and yet they have loved these recipes just as much as I have. The recipes cook up like traditional non-paleo recipes, but in a healthier way, which is really fantastic. I don't feel the need to make 2 separate dinners for paleo and non-paleo people.
I have cooked through many of the recipes including:
- A,B,&J Hand Sandwiches (pg. 144)
- Deviled Eggs, Four Ways (pg. 187)
- Skillet "Corn" Bread (pg 131)
- Mini "Corn Dog" Muffins (pg. 143)
- Chocolate Cake (pg. 152)
- Vanilla Buttercream (pg. 160)
- Lemon Bars (pg. 117)
- Pumpkin Spice Latte (pg. 263)
- Gingerbread Latte (pg. 272).
I promise, this cookbook will not disappoint!
