Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I was attracted to this cookbook because it is a very pretty book with beautiful pictures and many recipes that excite any reader. However, beyond that, this cookbook proved to be a huge disappointment. I have ditched the wheat and gluten and eat low carb. I own many other paleo cookbooks. What distinguishes this cookbook from other ones that promote themselves as paleo is that this one uses very high carb substitutes to replace the wheat and these ingredients - like a whole cup of arrowroot starch for a tortilla or a whole cup of potato arrowroot starch and a whole cup of potato starch to make a bagel. If you eat a low carb diet, this cookbook is not for you. Perhaps if you eat gluten free and you don't mind a high carb diet, you will like this book. It would make a "gluten free" book but I feel cheated out of my money for this high carb cookbook.
This is a really beautiful cookbook with some really simple recipes, like mostly under 10 ingredients, some with even 2 - 3 ingredients. But don't let that fool you because she spent years perfecting these recipes and testing it multiple rounds. Her recipes on her website are excellent. Carol's website Ditch the Wheat went popular because of her amazing dessert recipes, and several replacement for bread-type stuff on top of the real foods/whole foods diets. It takes real skills to develop some of these recipes because you don't have gluten to help the ingredients hold up. (So don't get upset for her inclusion of these items in her book.) I'm excited about the tortilla recipe since I haven't had one in ages. My favorite recipes are the spicy Vietnamese rainbow trout and chicken liver pate, because they are so easy I keep making them all the time.
