    As an Egyptian who eats paleo, it is refreshing and quite nice to have this cookbook. I can say without a doubt that it is authentic and true to the Mediterranean culture and to Paleo cuisine, thanks to Chef Nabil Boumrar from Algeria, Caitlin Weeks, Paleo Nutrition Consultant, and Diane Sanfilippo, NYT bestselling author of Practical Paleo. Perusing the pages of this cookbook, I see many familiar dishes I grew up with - many of which I thought I had to abandon once I went Paleo - dishes that I As an Egyptian who eats paleo, it is refreshing and quite nice to have this cookbook.

Perusing the pages of this cookbook, I see many familiar dishes I grew up with - many of which I thought I had to abandon once I went Paleo - dishes that I cannot wait to start eating again. The book itself is absolutely gorgeous - and there's even an a photo index of the recipes in the back. At nearly 400 pages of recipes, it is pretty darn comprehensive. I was pleased to see that the more traditional Mediterranean offal recipes were well represented, and that the flavors and spices of the region were authentic and not watered down at all. This book comes with my high recommendation...and I can't wait to start cooking!

Loaded with color photos, how-to steps and tips plus over 150 fresh coastal recipes, this book will have your family asking for more. The Mediterranean diet was all the rage just a few short years ago, and many health experts tout its benefits. Combine that with the added benefits of eating a grain-free, whole foods ancestral diet and you have a winning combination. I began reading the acknowledgments and the intro and was soon riveted to the story of how a young chef from Algiers and a nutritionist/fitness coach from Nashville met and married. Even more interesting is the story of how they embraced their interest in ancestral nutrition with Nabil’s homeland cuisine. Mediterranean Paleo Cooking takes one on an historic and culinary adventure of the countries that border the Mediterranean Sea. Following the brief history of Mediterranean cuisine are some health steps practiced by Mediterranean peoples and from which we all can benefit. To name a few: living a slower-paced life, eating seasonally, strong family connections, less reliance on technology and nose-to-tail eating (meaning, eat the entire animal). There’s more information on the Paleo diet, the fusion between Paleo and Mediterranean recipes and foods, a primer on how to stock your own Paleo Mediterranean kitchen, how to use the book and meal plans. The recipes are categorized into groups: Breakfast, Appetizers, Soups, Pizza and Pasta (yes!), Poultry, Red Meat, Seafood, Odd Bits (think offal), Vegetable Sides, Desserts and The basics (those wonderful seasonings and dipping sauces). I wanted to make them all but for my first venture into the array of recipes, I settled on the Fig and Ginger Chicken tagine (p. 204) with a Golden Raisin Slaw (p. 330) for the salad and a Cauliflower Couscous (p. 332) to accompany the entrée. I loved the wonderful flavors of the tagine, however, next time I will increase the cumin, coriander and cinnamon as it seemed a bit less intense than what I prefer. The slaw was superb, and a nice way to have a slaw without the usual mayonnaise. All the recipes in Mediterranean Paleo Cooking reflect the culture and flavors of the countries bordering the Mediterranean, from tagines to harissa braised short ribs, from a variety of hummuses to grain-free pita bread. The desserts are to die for! I love the chocolate tahini truffles (p. 350) and the Crème Caramel (p. 352). Also, there’s a recipe for chocolate-dipped madeleines, and since I recently purchased a madeleine pan, I can’t wait to try them. You won’t be disappointed in Mediterranean Paleo Cooking. Not only are the recipes delicious and beautiful, the book is chock full of tips and nutritional information, especially important if you need to modify for AIP, SCD/GAPS or low FODMAP. Kudos to Nabil and Caitlin for the recipes and to Diane Sanfilippo for the cover design and photography.

    Even though I don't eat Paleo per se, I have found this book to be most useful and informative for me! Suffering for over 5 years before being diagnosed with Celiac disease, I am always looking for interesting ways to prepare foods that will give me a more broad variety of flavors and not cause me to pay the price after each meal! Other than not being able to eat raw dairy, these recipes should add just the extra touch I need when I want something different than my own everyday home cooking!

    I've been poring through this book, first reading through all of the recipes and tagging the ones I am most likely to enjoy, then cooking the recipes on the tagged pages. These recipes have been really tasty, and are helping me to expand my repertoire of meals I like to cook and eat. Delicious flavors and lots of vegetable dishes for the times when I want a break from flesh :) I've been poring through this book, first reading through all of the recipes and tagging the ones I am most likely to enjoy, then cooking the recipes on the tagged pages.

    Some great ideas, new flavors. Going to try several. My only complaint was the font of recipe's ingredients. Some great ideas, new flavors. Going to try several. My only complaint was the font of recipe's ingredients.

    I'll admit, I do not follow a paleo diet, but I love Mediterranean food, so I thought I'd give this one a chance. While I'm not avoiding grains, I am trying to eat healthier. Early on in the book they tell you to avoid legumes, a greatly used ingredient in Mediterranean cooking with known health benefits. With no grains or legumes, I'm pretty sure I'll not be moving to a paleo diet, but on to the recipes. The Pistachio-Crusted Sole looks AMAZING and is definitely on my to-cook list.

Savory Chicken Kebabs are quick and easy as well as delicious and the Cioppino is just as it should be. There is a nice variety of foods from Breakfast to Pizza & Pasta, Seafood, Vegetables, Desserts and so much more. At the back of the book there are basic recipes for spice mixes, harissa, broths and more. It includes some tutorials, menu ideas and even a photo index (in addition to the regular one) divided by chapters. There are some great recipes in here--and some I know I'll never try--but there's plenty to recommend this book. If you are a paleo fan you should love this book. If you're not, give it a try. You may love it. I received a copy of this book from Victory Belt Publishing for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    One of the great things about this book is that it gives variations for specific kinds of paleo diets. For example, the autoimmune paleo variations make substitutions for eggs and tomatoes. The FODMAP diet pulls out onions, etc. I'm still working on the recipes in this book, and I'm working through the AIP variants, which may not be the same as the unsubstituted recipes for taste and texture. So I reserve judgment on these areas. The mousakka meat tasted good using AIP substitutions, but the top One of the great things about this book is that it gives variations for specific kinds of paleo diets.

The recipes can get kind of complex with the substitutions. I started by getting this from the library, and later went out and bought a copy.

    This book has paleo recipes (meaning heavy focus on meat) and light focus on all the allergens such as corn, soy, gluten (dairy optional) and a wonderful focus on Mediterranean. Gloriously illustrated. Olives, capers, olive oil--light smattering of nuts and seeds- some vegetables. Recipes range from paleo crackers (gluten free), fish, poultry, and meat dishes, sauces for sphaghetti squash or zucchini noodles. Really I don't miss the pasta at all.

    Gluten-free, fresh, local...the topic may seem beaten to death, but this book was delightful. It is not a "diet" book. It's a story that takes you on a journey into the workings of quality ingredients and tasteful foods. The introduction of it's authors, the story behind how it came together and the health information and recipes are very well written. It's easy to follow. I'm excited to try the recipes and can't wait for the health benefits to become evident! Gluten-free, fresh, local...the topic may seem beaten to death, but this book was delightful.

    Fabulous book! Give it a try whether you eat Paleo or not. Can't go wrong with this one. The recipes are to cook and absolutely delicious. Most recipes have some additional input from a chef and a nutritionist, which is quite useful. At the bottom of each recipe is a note about the recipe being low carb, AIP friendly, low FODMAP etc. which should be invaluable to those eating Paleo or doing a Whole30 or equivalent to address a specific health problem.

    The stories the authors share are so engaging. The recipes are great but more important is how these dishes relate to the memories and connections the authors have with family. This book is visually beautiful, well organized making it easy to use/find the recipes, and provides a fun journey into the cuisine of the Mediterranean area.
