Interesting cookbook: The Ancestral Table by Russ Crandall

I got this book yesterday and I wanted to share my impression.
First: yes, it's considered a Paleo book.
However: he does use rice, potatoes and dairy, so it's very doable for most plans.

Second: I'd say half of the recipes I've looked at are "you don't need to be a professional chef to do this" type. Some are fairly complicated or take time, but for the most part, the ones I've looked at are fairly simple.

Third: easy to find ingredients. Of course he suggests the usual "hormone and antibiotic free, organic, free range, no crapola additives" stuff, but there's also a heavy lean towards "whatever is in your budget".

Fourth: while not a necessity, the book is beautifully photographed. I'm an "eye eater" so this has a big effect on if I'm going to try a recipe or not

Now he does use things like tapioca starch, potato starch, rice noodles, honey, etc. So many of the recipes are not uber low-carb, but there's a lot of potential (subbing shirataki noodles, stevia, glucomannan, etc).

Anyway, if you're in the mood for a new cookbook, I really like this one (enough to post about it lol).

I just checked out his blog (The Domestic Man) and looked at some of the recipes. It looks like he does a lot of Asian cooking. We cook that way frequently too as a lot of it is naturally gluten free.

I'm kind of interested in the (gluten free) pizza that is on the cover of the book. We have developed a decent crust but I'm always on the lookout for more ideas there.

His blog has the recipe It's "Cast Iron Skillet Grain and Gluten Free Pizza" (out of deference to the author, I won't post his recipes here, but they're easily googleable (is that a word?) and his blog has several of them )

A lot of the paleo/primal cookbooks are really into umami flavor (Umami - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). So they do lean towards the Asian flavor profile.
