There's something undeniably special about this collection of recipes from Simone Miller. The Zenbelly Cookbook is your new answer to not only "What's for dinner?" but also "What can I serve my family for our next holiday?'
I've had the pleasure of trying some of Simone's recipes, cooked by Simone herself! Her lamb dish was the best I've ever had. Simone has a true talent in the kitchen. Her recipes are healthy, flavorful, and perfectly balanced. I am thrilled to be able to re-create Simone's dishes at home!
About the Author
Simone Miller is a self-taught chef who has been working in the food industry for 17 years. She worked at several restaurants in New York and Connecticut before relocating to San Francisco in 2007. Once in the Bay Area, Simone worked as a personal chef while working to launch a catering company. Shortly after getting Zenbelly off the ground, Simone learned whatwas behind her constant headaches and lethargy: a pretty serious sensitivity to gluten. Discovering she had food allergies put the brakes on the business, but only long enough to pivot. Simone couldn’t imagine serving people food she hasn’t tasted, and recognized the tremendous need for gluten-free catering. All signs pointed to turning Zenbelly into a gluten-free catering company. And who better to do it than someone who couldn't imagine living a life restricted by food allergies? Simone is a chef on a mission: To prove that gluten-free and paleo cuisine can be just as gourmet, refined, and artfully presented as what you’d find in a fine bistro. She draws on her holistic nutrition education to bring true nourishment to her cooking, and belies the notion that healthy food can’t be delicious enough to impress the most serious gourmand. Simone offers a chef's perspective to paleo recipes on her blog, Zenbellyblog.com. There, she shares her grain-free recipes that have made believers out of some of the most die-hard gluten eaters, and has encouraged countless people to roll up their sleeves and have fun creating simple, delicious, healthy food.

BEST PALEO PIZZA DOUGH EVER!!!
Seriously, she cracked the code. I had lost all hope in the potential for a palatable Paleo pizza but I decided to try the recipe anyway. It completely blew my mind. The book is great for a host of other reasons and recipes, but in all honesty, I would happily have paid twice the price just for the pizza recipe.
She includes great instructions for chopping, "building recipes", how to find quality ingredients etc.
All the recipes I've tried so far are amazing. Some are great for family meals and some are better for dinner parties.
All of the recipes are easy enough to follow, even for the most basic cook. I love the menu ideas in the back as well as the
thumbnail index (I'm a very visual learner). One of my favorite and easiest recipes for a dinner party (or family) are the papillote.
I put salmon in mine.....great way to "impress your friends". I own about 25 Paleo cookbooks. This is one of my main "go to" books.
Someone in another review mentioned that it is not AIP. There is no where in this book that says it is AIP, much the same as many other Paleo cook books. If you need AIP, the book should say on the cover that it contains AIP recipes. Great work to Simone!!
I've enjoyed Simone's recipes for awhile, following both her blog and Facebook page. Her recipes consistently work, which I appreciate more than I can say. (I will never get enough of her dark chocolate cake or her perfect pizza crust.) The recipes in this book are just as delightful as those I've used before with helpful tips and witty comments alongside. I love it when a cookbook author is not hesitant to tell us exactly which brands they prefer and which ingredients do and don't work well with substitutions.
The format is easy to follow and easy to read. With other books, I've sometimes loved the content but had to work too hard to read the small or overly stylized print. This is not the case with Zenbelly Cookbook. It is made to be used. It's designed to go into the kitchen with you, with front and back covers that double as page holders. That may sound minor unless you've struggled, as I have, trying to find a recipe to confirm cooking times or ingredients while in the middle of cooking with messy hands and no time to spare.
Zenbelly Cookbook has quickly become my favorite gift for friends and relatives who love to cook and eat.
