About the Author
Simone Miller is a self-taught chef who has been working in the food industry for 17 years. She worked at several restaurants in New York and Connecticut before relocating to San Francisco in 2007. Once in the Bay Area, Simone worked as a personal chef while working to launch a catering company. Shortly after getting Zenbelly off the ground, Simone learned whatwas behind her constant headaches and lethargy: a pretty serious sensitivity to gluten. Discovering she had food allergies put the brakes on the business, but only long enough to pivot. Simone couldn’t imagine serving people food she hasn’t tasted, and recognized the tremendous need for gluten-free catering. All signs pointed to turning Zenbelly into a gluten-free catering company. And who better to do it than someone who couldn't imagine living a life restricted by food allergies? Simone is a chef on a mission: To prove that gluten-free and paleo cuisine can be just as gourmet, refined, and artfully presented as what you’d find in a fine bistro. She draws on her holistic nutrition education to bring true nourishment to her cooking, and belies the notion that healthy food can’t be delicious enough to impress the most serious gourmand. Simone offers a chef's perspective to paleo recipes on her blog, Zenbellyblog.com. There, she shares her grain-free recipes that have made believers out of some of the most die-hard gluten eaters, and has encouraged countless people to roll up their sleeves and have fun creating simple, delicious, healthy food.

This book is one of my favorite Paleo cookbooks. The recipes are clearly written, and I especially like the photos of the assembled ingredients. And delicious! I had despaired of ever having a decent Paleo pizza until I tried the Zenbelly pizza crust. Superb! I like it better than traditional wheat pizza crusts. This is a great cookbook.
