And that is where this book comes in. From what I garner- Sarah is a former chubby girl who totally got down and dirty with the SAD diet (bc let's be honest- it's delicious). She changed her ways, however, for the same reason I changed mine- it just makes me feel better to eat paleo. I sleep better, I workout better (though they are NOT crossfit workouts by any stretch of the imagination), and I am less moody. These recipes are amazing AND delicious. The cost of the book is worth the Bechamel recipe alone. And while Everyday Paleo and the Everyday Paleo cookbooks for families were great books- I actually think that she is getting to be an even better cook. So give this book a try. You won't be disappointed.
The best part about this book is the beginning section where Sarah talks about her trip to Italy. Her heart and passion truly come across in her writing. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys food!
The first section of the book is a travelogue of her and her family's journey through Italy. In it she highlights the different chefs that she had the opportunity to work with and learn from. Aside from information about the regions and the chefs themselves, there are observations about attitudes towards food, where that food comes from, pace of life and finding the balance in the fast paced world of today. I found it fascinating, especially in regards to the near insanity of the pace of life here in the U.S. Throwing life into a transmission burning gear isn't necessarily isolated to the States though. So it was very interesting and enlightening to get a glimpse at the struggle for balance against a different backdrop. The travelogue alone is a real treasure.
I will admit that I usually associate Italian cuisine with a lot of pasta and dishes that feature bread recipes. Fragoso shows another side of Italian cuisine. A very delicious side. The section of Antipasti is filled with diverse recipes that I never knew were antipasti, as well as many other dishes throughout the book that have expanded my knowledge of Italian cuisine. As well as some just straight up delicious recipes. There are the classics like, Lasagna and Baked Ziti (Paleo versions of course), but other dishes that I knew very little about. Dishes like Chicken with Fig Sauce, Ossobuco (slow-cooked veal or beef shanks), as well as meats combined with pomegranate reductions. She has some wonderful seafood recipes as well. And one my favorites, using cauliflower as a substitute for grains, like in her "Risotto" alla Milanese recipe.
Sarah is very good about pre-warning the reader if a particular recipe requires some added time. I find this so helpful in a recipe book. Sometimes you need something delicious and quick, sometimes you want to go on a cooking adventure. She gives opportunities for both. As a mother of four kids and the go to person in our house for almost all the food prep this is very important and useful to me. Trying to feed my family in a way that is healthy and exciting (surgary, gluten-loaded Franken-foods can look pretty enticing to a kid) can be a challenge. Having a cookbook authored by someone who understands this dilemma is a Godsend.
The book is full of great tips for cooking, in general, not just Italian. From trying out some of the recipes I have already learned some great new techniques.
The quality time she spent with the different chefs really comes through in the recipes.
Sarah Fragoso also offers up tips, advice and info about planning a family trip to Italy and recommendations for places to stay and dine in different areas of the country.
I highly recommend adding this book to any cookbook library (not just a Paleo one!). An amazing gift, especially since you might not want to loan your own copy out!
