It’s time to let you guys in on a little secret. For the past year I’ve been working on a cookbook, which I’m calling The Ancestral Table: Traditional Recipes for a Paleo Lifestyle.
The book will feature over 100 classic traditional and international recipes, much like what you’ve come to expect here on The Domestic Man. All dishes are gluten-free and Paleo-friendly. Many of the recipes are brand new, while others are updated versions of those already on this site, re-developed from the ground-up. I’ve even added a couple of dessert recipes – a first for me.
The recipes in my book will be aligned with my belief that safe starches (like white rice, tapioca, and potatoes) and some forms of dairy have a place in the modern interpretation of the Paleo diet. Essentially, this is the first Perfect Health Diet cookbook – so it’s only fitting that Paul Jaminet graciously provided the foreword.
If you follow a more strict interpretation of Paleo, never fear! The Ancestral Table is mostly filled with strictly Paleo offerings, and the book will also include a substitution guide for anyone wanting to convert the other recipes to a “cleaner” version of Paleo while maintaining maximum taste.
More info can be found on the book’s landing page. It will be out on February 11, 2014 – just four months away! – and is available for pre-order on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
I hope you’re as excited about the book as I am. I think you’ll really like it.
