Pauli Halstead is a chef, caterer and former restaurant owner. She KNOWS how to make good food, and how to make food LOOK good.
“Primal Cuisine” is her second book, but the first in her no-starch, no-sugar, go-Paleo life and lifestyle. Pauli got into Paleo/Primal cooking when she became a patient of best-selling author and Nutritional Therapist Nora Gedagaudas.
This is a fun podcast with lots of questions about flavor, desserts, sustainability and much more. I think you’ll enjoy it! Tune in!
What do I like about this book?
1). I love the cover, the paper, the font, the lay-out and the size of it. It just feels good to hold and to read.
2). The FOOD! These recipes are clear and not too difficult but the emphasis is on that caterer’s magic touch – FLAVOR AND APPEARANCE. Follow Pauli’s lead and you’ll look like a sous-chef yourself! There are party platters here, as well as breakfast, salad dressings and desserts.
3). The first 40 pages are about food, health and why grains, sugars, food additives and bad fats are out. It’s not preachy, but perfect for some gentle coaching of readers wanting to know more of the WHY as well as the HOW.
4). There are 20 pages on stocking the pantry. Excellent resources are given as well as info on how to find real olive oil and the best spices and seasonings.
5). It’s a great gift book! My suggestion is to buy 10 copies and your holiday and Birthday shopping for a year are done! The price is only $19.95… A relief when so many books are topping $35 these days.
Pauli and I share a lot about our health issues and life changes, as well as laughing at some behind-the-scenes looks at several of those dessert recipes!
Buy it. Love it. Share it. You’ll like this one.
