From the Back Cover
While Sophie's cooking is deeply rooted in tradition and family history, it has all of the elements that I love--simple, practical, flavorful, and fresh. One of the biggest lessons I've learned from Sophie is the art of enjoying food. I urge you, as you flip through the pages of this book and mark the recipes that are sure to become family favorites, to not only look to the task of feeding yourself, but of nourishing your spirit and creativity with these incredible recipes Sophie has created. Embarking on the Autoimmune Protocol has never been so enjoyable!
About the Author

Sophie’s French heritage shines through in her simple, yet creative cooking style. Her recipes are achievable, even for those new to cooking. Diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease in 2009, Sophie regained her health and vitality by eating tasty and nutritious food on the AIP diet. Stress management and regular practice of moderate exercise are also an important part of her healing journey. Sophie lives in Colorado with her husband and their three teenage girls.

To that purpose, one would think that a well written theoretical introduction to what the AIP is, is all you need... But cooking being traditionally an art passed through mother, aunts, and grand mothers, and learned by watching, doing (and then of course mostly tasting!) rather than learning by the book, a specific AIP recipe book is what I needed. I use thus the book "in reverse", as I actually use every recipe book I ever owned. I look at the recipe, choose by the picture or the ingredients, and then only go back to the introduction to better understand how this complies with AIP and that way, learn more about AIP. Each recipe is step by step detailed, very nicely illustrated, and commented for addition or adaptation in a very clear way. Also the typescript is easy to read, which when you get older is a requirement.
What is also extremely useful for the reverse reader that I am, is the index that allows me to choose a recipe starting from what is seasonal and available on the market: as a little girl, I watched my mother and grand mothers set up their grocery shopping list anticipating what kind of fruits and vegetables would be found in the stores, before building the menu of the week, and the habit still sticks with me. Several products however are not among my usual ingredients, I'm therefor very grateful for the detailed description of an AIP pantry.
I'm so glad I purchased this book, it will be used backwards, forwards and diagonally, as cookbooks ought to IMO, and I'm hopeful to eventually also adapt this or that recipe and make it "mine". In the end, whatever way you choose to cook, French cuisine, AIP or anything else, it has to become "your" cooking - and this book is definitely of a great help to that aim.
PS - there are very few desserts in here, and the few baking recipes all include tigernut flour. Just an FYI for those who might want to know ahead of time.
Let me say that the book itself is visually pleasing. The photos are lovely and the size is great, too. But beyond that, it's the simple yet delicious recipes which star here. While I eat on the AIP plan, my family doesn't necessarily. And several AIP recipes I've tried have seemed unnecessarily complicated and worse, unappetizing. Not so with this book. We've made at least one recipe every day since it arrived and all have been delicious! Even my non-AIP family are devouring them. Tonight we had Lavender and Honey Pork Medallions, with a side of Pickled Vegetables - so simple, so clean, so tasty. I grew up eating this way - no fussy preparations, beautiful ingredients. So this book makes sense to me and allows my family to eat great food while keeping my autoimmune disease at bay. A win for all! I really cannot recommend this book enough to those suffering with an autoimmune disease or even common food sensitivities.
