Editorial Reviews


"Hayley and Bill have captured the essence of what it means to dine in the finest Primal style."—Mark Sisson, author of The Primal Blueprint and publisher of MarksDailyApple.com

"Gather is filled with fresh flavors and amazing recreations of old favorites that will certainly wow your guests."—Diane Sanfilippo, New York Times Bestselling author of Practical Paleo

"This book is proof that it's possible to eat and entertain like a gourmet without gluten, grains or other "non-Paleo" ingredients… A must on your kitchen shelf."—Chris Kresser, M.S. L.Ac and among the "top 50 most influential people in health and fitness"

"…everyone needs this book. Filled with time-saving tips, decorating ideas, beautiful photographs, and simple but scrumptious menus for every occasion, this gorgeous tome will make you the hostess with the mostest."—Michelle Tam, award-winning blogger at NomNomPaleo.com

"Bill Staley and Hayley Mason have taken the Paleo experience out of the sweat of Crossfit gyms, away from the forest and savannah, and launched an elegant 21st century interpretation of this lifestyle. No preceding Paleo cookbook has cast these ideas into such a luxurious and cultured setting, all viewed from the perspective of gathering and entertaining. Beautifully photographed, with uniquely clever approaches to the menu, such as Night in Tuscany, Takeout Fake-out, and Hunter-Gatherer Feast, Gather will be a classic favorite for grain-free living."—Dr. William Davis, New York Times best selling author of Wheat Belly

About the Author

Bill Staley, a landscape architect and life long artist, grew up with a passion for great food and creating things with his hands. Drawing upon a decade of experience in graphic design, photography, and various other artistic pursuits, Bill flexes his creativity in the kitchen behind the camera lens. Following their popular debut title, Make it Paleo, Bill and Hayley have blazed a unique trail for themselves in the cooking world. What started as a casual blogging hobby quickly grew into a bustling website, followed by a cookbook, and now has grown to an interactive website with a meal planner, customized user-created shopping lists, and even a companion app for smart phones.

Hayley Mason, a high definition makeup artist trained in Hollywood, never thought she would be applying her styling talents to grass fed beef and grain free desserts rather than the eyes and cheek bones of movie stars. Hayley was quick to become one of the most acclaimed culinary forces driving the grain free cooking movement. Her practical, efficient and methodical cooking style shows that delicious grain free eating can be easily attained by anyone and leave you feeling as if nothing is missing from your plate. Her holistic approach to health, wellness and nutrition is a common thread that weaves its way through every recipe she creates.

To sum it up: If I wanted a non-Paleo cookbook, I would have bought one.

The book is titled "Gather: The Art of Paleo Entertaining" not the art of paleo-ish entertaining, or primal entertaining, or hey, paleo entertaining is hard so throw some potatoes and dairy in there because it'll be easier.

The way I look at it is this: call it what it is. Don't write a vegan cookbook and include meat. Don't write a gluten-free cookbook and include recipes with wheat germ. Don't write a Paleo cookbook and include things that are outside the Paleo framework and if you do, either list them as optional or include them in a separate section. Lots of people are "paleo-ish" but what that means to them is different. Some people lean towards primal and include dairy--fine. But then call it primal. I know what that is. I won't buy a primal cookbook because my family has dairy allergies.

Dairy features prominently in this cookbook. Butter, cream, cheese, sour cream.

In the intro to the book, on page six, they say they believe a Paleo "lifestyle" vs a Paleo Diet includes "allowances for holidays, special occasions and celebrations." I agree. Although then I would still prefer to have a paleo version of that indulgence, OR, if I was straying outside the framework, I have plenty of options available to me that aren't marketed as Paleo (while including ingredients that aren't). They further say that while writing the book "it became clear to us, week after week, that serving good, "paleo-friendly" food did not need an excuse or an explanation." Hmm... kind of contradicts what they just said above....If it was good, paleo food (instead of that sneaky "friendly" word included at the end) then I'd agree-- that's what I was hoping this book would be.

At my gym's holiday party this past winter, one of the other members came up to me, pointed to a plate of cookies and asked "are these normal cookies?" I replied "yes, eat one!" She was trying to find out of the cookies were made from wheat flour or not, and, in her mind, if they weren't made from grains, they wouldn't taste good - at all. She was laughing at herself when she realized who she was asking about the cookies - and that of course I'd say the grain-free ones were "normal."

Fast forward four months and we still laugh about it - how good that cookie was to her, and how she was expecting it not to be since it wasn't made from wheat.

I bet this is a familiar scene for some of you. You end up "tricking" friends of family by feeding them your grain-free goodies, and let them know after-the-fact that it was made from almond coconut flour.

That's because (almost) everyone wants treats. I even overheard one very popular Paleo recipe blogger discuss recently on her Facebook page how, of all the amazing recipes she shares on her site, her grain-free chocolate cake is the number one visited page every single day.

There's almost no way around the tendency most of us have to want treats now and then. I say, if you can't beat `em, join `em! Better yet... help them!

In Gather, Hayley and Bill have presented the ultimate guide to creating and re-creating many of your favorites for holidays and special events - all free of grains, refined sugar, and other highly processed ingredients.

This past weekend, we cooked from the Chinese food Takeout Fake-out menu for family - most of whom are not Paleo, by the way.

A few of us got together in the kitchen to chop and prep all the ingredients, then we got to work on the recipes.

Bill Staley and Hayley Mason are an oddity in the best possible way. These two good-looking and healthy 20-somethings are a throwback to a generation long ago where food was not only considered nourishment but also an intimate and engaging experience in and of itself for family, friends and virtually anyone who partakes in what loving hands had prepared. How in the 21st Century have we lost one of the clear-cut signs of our truest sense of humanity that comes from not just eating but also the intentional interaction of fellowship that goes along with it? That's a question that GATHER, the Art of Paleo Entertaining not only answers but perhaps even redefines.

If you read Bill and Hayley's fantastic 2011 debut book release MAKE IT PALEO, then you already know just how serious they take the presentation of their food. Bill has a real gift for food photography (as evidenced by his previous book and in the New York Times bestselling book PRACTICAL PALEO by Diane Sanfilippo) and it shines through loud and clear in the 300+ pictures you'll find within the pages of this big 300-page coffee-table-worthy book. These gorgeous photos of the people preparing, plating and having such a good time making nutritious and delicious Paleo meals make the book a joy to read and even just flipping through casually to become emotionally moved by the stories being told by the camera. Even if you're not someone who currently eats a Paleo-styled diet, don't worry about that--these amazing recipes are going to be a hit to anyone who loves good food.
