Editorial Reviews

Chris Kresser
“If you’re tired of boring or overly restrictive Paleo recipes, this book is for you. Russ’s love of traditional and international cuisine and culinary experience shine through in his delicious and satisfying recipes.”
Melissa Joulwan
“The Ancestral Table is a feast of lovingly crafted recipes that make the most of bold tastes and traditional cooking methods. The recipes — a world tour of international flavors – flex the paleo template to include quality starches and some dairy,while remaining true to a well-reasoned, real food philosophy. It’s clear that Russ takes good food and good health seriously – but he infuses the primal acts of cooking and eating with undeniable pleasure and joy.”
Michelle Tam
“I absolutely adore cookbooks that give me a sense of place, history, and flavor—along with deliciously authentic recipes. By weaving together a vibrant tapestry of words and photographs, Russ Crandall’s Ancestral Table offers all of this and more, transporting and nourishing readers in both mind and palate. Bravo!”
Tony Federico
“In The Ancestral Table,Russ Crandall dispenses with the typical Paleo prohibitions against white rice, potatoes, and dairy products, choosing to embrace the wisdom of ancient culinary traditions instead. Nutrient dense broths, fermented vegetables, and layers of flavors are featured prominently in recipes that are approachable, healthful, and, perhaps most importantly, absolutely delicious. This is the kind of food that can truly be enjoyed for a lifetime!”
Diana Rodgers
“The Ancestral Table contains a beautiful collection of dishes that will really get you excited in the kitchen. Russ’s recipes are in the true spirit of slow food, covering the basics to the more advanced cooking techniques. If you’re a foodie, this book is for you!”
Stacy Toth
“The Domestic Man is an absolute stand-out chef in the ancestral health community. No one combines classical cooking techniques,outstanding and broad flavors, and international flair quite like Russ. With unique and unctuous recipes, The Ancestral Table is a book that will find a prominent place in our home: open, splattered, and next to my stove.”

Meet the Author

Russ Crandall is the talented home chef behind The Domestic Man, a leading food blog in the Paleo, gluten-free, and whole foods communities. In his 20s he suffered a number of life-threatening illnesses, was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune condition—and was sent home with a lifetime's worth of medications. Disenchanted with modern medicine, Russ started searching for his own answers and quickly discovered that eating a gluten-free, nutrient-rich diet instantly alleviated most of the medical issues that had plagued him for years.

Taking cues from his undergraduate studies in history and his travels around the world, Russ quickly discovered that traditional dishes—those that people ate just a few generations ago—inherently embody healthy principles because they were created at a time before processed foods existed. During the day he serves as a Russian translator in the U.S. Navy, and in the evening he can be found tinkering with traditional recipes. He and his family live in Baltimore but consider Hawaii home.
