"Jenni Hulet's book, My Paleo Patisserie, is a feast of visual delights and enticing recipes. For anyone who thinks living gluten-free must be about deprivation, your socks will be blown off by the matcha green tea cream puffs with ganache, French apple tart, and black-bottomed banana pies. And croquembouche! Whoever thought there would be croquembouche on a special needs diet? It's such a beautiful book." (―Shauna James ahern author of Gluten-Free Girl Every Day)
About the Author
Over the course of two weeks in December 2010, Jenni Hulet went from being an active mother, yoga teacher, and chef to being unable to get out of bed because of uncontrollable pain and muscle spasms. After months of unproductive doctor visits, she began to fear that all her creative pursuits were over and that she would have to resign herself to a life of pain management. Eventually, a doctor was able to identify an emerging autoimmune condition that, though devastating, could be recovered. Jenni was diagnosed as severely gluten and casein intolerant and was put on a strict diet and supplement regimen to heal her ravaged body.
The process of facing down her worst fears and walking a lengthy path of recovery inspired a new expression for Jenni’s passion: to bring beauty, flavor, and freedom to those struggling with the fear and difficulty of living with health restrictions. It was out of this vision that her blog, The Urban Poser, was born. Bringing together her culinary skills and love of beautiful, celebratory food with her compassion for the suffering, The Urban Poser is a way for Jenni to overcome the adversity in her life with the creativity and exuberance she had once thought were gone forever.

when not under a lot of stress and as That said. some of the buttercreams are done slightly different, but always always the best choice for a bridal or very special event, for a classic wedding for a true dessert lover!
Always FOLLOW the directions for best results! I got more tears in my eyes when I realized that I could once again indulge in my favorite carrot cake, and popovers?? Is this for real?? Again, moderation in all things, I will not be eating this daily, but it SURE is wonderful to know that when I need to bake something I am able to use paleo ingredients~ These are special occasion items for me! I will also be looking into a simple ice cream maker bc I have not have had any in at least 4 yrs, Smoothies with fruit and quality powdered high fat chocolate have been a saving grace for me for those times when everyone else has ice cream, and that I just started doing bc it gets awful hard. I , too, have been through a myriad of health difficulties which forced me to address just what was making me so sick. And having had Lyme disease, along with another auto immune problem, Paleo diet has helped me to live a normal life again, All I can say is a big thank you for this book, I will make it my mission to make one drop dead gorgeous dessert per week so I can get a feel for these recipes prior to the holidays, I appreciate the fact that someone went SO far in Paleo baking, this is like a dream come true for me ( I am a person who had my kitchen completely done over getting rid of a family room just to add on and have a huge kitchen to work in, so maybe you get the idea just how much I love to bake. I have converted my husband to smoothies for one meal per day, and he has a terrible sweet tooth, I am convinced that if I make really great desserts it will help him a lot to! Hands down THE best Paleo baking book EVER, , going on a shelf right next to my beloved Julia Child books! I will report back on success ( or lack there of recipes!)
The thing which struck me first was the weight! It's heavy! Printed on high quality, glossy stock which makes for lovely photographic reproductions. There's no creepy, inky smell like a lot of newer books; it's also printed in America which may account for the lack of bad smell.
The photos are gorgeous, mouth-watering, artistic. This is the sort of book one just wants to look at!
There's a photo index, allergen index, resources, and many other items which are helpful.
But wait! There's more! There's actually recipes which won't make us sick (read The Grain Brain if you need more convincing). I haven't had much in the way of fancy, elegant desserts, or even a POPOVER or a BREADSTICK since cutting out grain but I can see that will soon change! I just don't know which tempting morsel to make first!
Thank you, Jenni, for this lovely treat.
UPDATE! My granddaughter was craving pizza and was taken by the recipe in this book. So we made it and it was better than "real" pizza. Topped with almond milk mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh herbs, Canadian bacon, prosciutto, and kalamata olives. Oh my!
