What I Liked about Mediterranean Paleo
The information about the authors, their backgrounds, and approach to food really got me into the mood to try the recipes. Even more impressive was the wonderful information that the authors shared about Mediterranean cuisine, what they'd learned about health and lifestyle, and how to put together Mediterranean and Paleo cooking. What comes from this fusion is over a hundred very tasty, healthy recipes that you can eat or serve to company.
My favorite recipe is roasted garlic cauliflower hummus. When you first are on the elimination diet, you can't eat beans. I was looking for something quick to eat when I was hungry and busy. The cauliflower hummus had a great texture, nice flavor, and was great with lightly blanched veggie sticks (I don't get much benefit from completely raw veggies because I had a gut reroute years ago.). If you eat completely raw veggies, keeping some of the cauliflower hummus on hand is a huge time saver.
What I Would Improve about Mediterranean Paleo
There are recommendations for using a slow cooker for many of the recipes. I did try this, and I would caution you that the slow cooker versions are not "drop in the pot and let 'er cook." You need to brown the meat, toast the spices, etc., in order to have similar results to stove top cooking. Sometimes this means a few more dirty pots or pans to wash, but it was worth it to improve the overall texture and flavor of the food. So, I wish the authors had emphasized this more in the "busy people's prep" instructions.
I just purchased one of the latest makes of pressure cookers, and I haven't had a moment to try these recipes in the pressure cooker, but I'm thinking that browning and toasting is going to be useful when I do.
Overall Rating for Mediterranean Paleo
I would give this cookbook five stars for anyone who is paleo, whole30, yeast reducing, or on any sort of an allergy elimination eating plan. The recipes are tasty, easy to use, and have ingredients that fit in these eating plans very easily.
For the recipes with the option to slowcook, I suggest browning the seasoning into the meat first and then slow-cooking. The spice chicken Tajine (pic attached) is my favorite so far. It's so quick and easy to throw together. I've done it both ways, stive stop & slow cooker, and i prefer the slow cooker, deeper flavor. I like it extra spicy, so I add more jalepeno and a dash of cayenne pepper. (But you can't write a recipe actually spicy otherwise reviewers with no tolerance will cry)

I love the descriptions above the recipes, giving titbits of Mediterranean cooking and also the experiences of Caitlin and Nabil when visiting his homeland. You really feel like you're getting an insight into Nabil's family and the wonderful food they lovingly make for each other.
So far, I've made three recipes. Over and over again because I love them so much! It's rare for a new recipe to make its way into our rotation but Savoury Chicken Kebabs have achieved that accolade. We can't get enough of the flavours and ingredients, often we can whip them up from leftover meat and veggies in the fridge.
The second recipe I've made numerous times is the sesame candies, which are just like sesame snaps my Mum gave me as a child but with an extra delicious edge. The spices add to the wonderful sticky, satisfying treats and they totally kill any sweet craving.
The macaroons were delicious but didn't come out perfectly as I messed up the quantities, whoops! They still tasted fab though!
If you love easy recipes from the Med, made simple to understand, Paleo and with tips from a chef and nutritionist (not to mention alterations for specific dietary requirements like AIP and low-carb) this is a great book for you
One of the best Paleo books I've seen
