Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Bill Staley, a landscape architect and life long artist, grew up with a passion for great food and creating things with his hands. Drawing upon a decade of experience in graphic design, photography, and various other artistic pursuits, Bill flexes his creativity in the kitchen behind the camera lens. Following their popular debut title, Make it Paleo, Bill and Hayley have blazed a unique trail for themselves in the cooking world. What started as a casual blogging hobby quickly grew into a bustling website, followed by a cookbook, and now has grown to an interactive website with a meal planner, customized user-created shopping lists, and even a companion app for smart phones.
Hayley Mason, a high definition makeup artist trained in Hollywood, never thought she would be applying her styling talents to grass fed beef and grain free desserts rather than the eyes and cheek bones of movie stars. Hayley was quick to become one of the most acclaimed culinary forces driving the grain free cooking movement. Her practical, efficient and methodical cooking style shows that delicious grain free eating can be easily attained by anyone and leave you feeling as if nothing is missing from your plate. Her holistic approach to health, wellness and nutrition is a common thread that weaves its way through every recipe she creates.

I guess I am partly frustrated with the cookbook and partly frustrated for what I think is missing in the marketplace-blog community. Gourmet paleo food for everyday and entertaining that is based on the original paleo diet -- basically lean meats, veggies and fruits. Instead of trying to imitate regular foods, why don't we create inventive combinations that are new. I must say that my favorite recipes still seem to come from regular cookbooks that just "happen" to be Paleo or can be transformed with simple switches and substitutions. Where is the Paleo Ottolenghi?
Die Rezepte sind nach Jahreszeit und Gelegenheiten sortiert und in Menüs zusammen gefasst. Gefällt mir persönlich sehr gut. Nach den ersten Testkochen kann ich nur sagen: absolut empfehlenswert!

I loved the idea of a paleo entertaining book (and pre-ordered this one) as I'd always struggled to find things that felt special and that worked together when having guests over.
I think I was expecting a few more 'appetizer' and 'party' type foods; these recipes are very much geared around dinner-party style meals/menus... which is great, too! The tips and tricks, décor inspiration, shopping lists and extra details are very cool. In general, this is quite a good cookbook. BUT be warned...
What you need to know:
Some of the meals are a little out of reach (at least for me) one of them has two recipes which use wild game. No idea where I would find this -- it would have been nice for them to have listed alternatives.
Some of these recipes are quite good. But, every time I open this book, it bothers me that they included non-paleo ingredients. One of the reasons this frustrates me is the conflicting information confuses people new to the paleo world and is aggravating for someone (me) who thought they were buying a truly paleo cookbook. The author(s) have defended this by saying "paleo is strict enough.." (which seems like an odd comment. Would you include the occasional peanut butter in a cookbook for people with peanut allergies? Because it's just so hard to live that way and entertain?) One of the authors comments in a response to another review- "Gather is a tool for people to ease their family and friends into the idea of going grain-free. There is a very real need to make this lifestyle more accessible to the masses without getting all crazy strict Paleo on them" That's fine.... then call it a Grain Free cookbook, or a gluten free cookbook... and let me know that before I buy it rather then selling a "book [that] is proof that it's possible to eat and entertain like a gourmet without gluten, grains or other "non-Paleo" ingredients..." (huh!?) ... "delicious and satisfying menu that will also promote good health."
Good health, for me, was discovering my own intolerance to gluten and dairy and finding a community that also ate this way. It has been simply amazing to be able to have a wealth of truly paleo recipes available and be able to see "paleo" and know that it encompasses all the parameters I need to follow to be healthy. If I wasn't looking for paleo recipes, I wouldn't have bought a paleo cookbook. If they felt it necessary to include these things, I feel they maybe should have been in a "grain free treats" section, or as a "primal option" subsection of the recipe. Eating paleo has eliminated friends' auto immune diseases, my father's GERD and my nephews debilitating excema. When I have a dinner party, I want and need to cook paleo food for my friends and family, and I'd hoped this book was going to be the one to help me do that. It seems (from the author's comments) this book is more "for the masses" since apparently eating paleo is "all crazy strict".
True, sometimes it is difficult to eat this way. That is why I turn to talented chefs to create menus that align with this lifestyle, because frankly, a menu which includes cheese, potatoes (there is a whole page dedicated to a recipe for potatoes as a side dish) and creme brule for dessert? Sounds a lot like the way I was eating before I was paleo and looks a heck of a lot like a million other menus in cookbooks I've already given away....
Most paleo cookbooks spend a lot of energy giving you ideas about what you can cook everyday, and that's wonderful. Sometimes, though, you want suggestions for what to make for a special dinner. So many of our big comfort-food dinners are carb-heavy, after all: potato gratin, stuffing, gingerbread. Bill Staley's Gather does an excellent job of giving us options for, well, entertaining. I've been cooking from it for months, now -- not only for dinner parties! -- and I can comfortably give the cookbook 5 stars.
But you might not. Aside from "no grains, no legumes, no white potatoes," paleo has several variations. Some people use milk products; others eschew them. Most paleo folks avoid any kind of refined sugar, though I've encountered flame wars about the use of agave versus honey versus, well, all the other options. I don't have a dog in that fight, but I'm aware you want to know: The author uses milk and cream, as well as some sugars (such as maple sugar) you might avoid.
That didn't make you run off screaming? You're still here? I can proceed to tell you why this is such a great cookbook.
First, it's organized by season and menu, so that you can (but obviously do not have to) put together an entire meal that's well-balanced in flavors and theme. For example, a backyard picnic (which includes teriyaki country ribs; no'tato salad -- using turnips and hard boiled eggs; creamy fennel slaw with carrots & apples; balsamic tomato and peach salad; lemon blueberry muffins) has a "shopping and preparation" page that helps you plan the menu one or two days ahead (e.g. make the muffins the day before; these use coconut flour, coconut milk, maple syrup, palm shortening). The accompanying photos are pretty enough to inspire you to make the effort, too.
The recipes are themselves solidly GOOD, with clear instructions. I made a few dishes from this cookbook for Thanksgiving, and all were excellent: Fried plantain chips served with a guacamole that included asian pear (yum!), and a simple roasted lemon green beans with shallots. Earlier, I made the pizza margherita: the crust uses almond flour and arrowroot, and the sauce is both homemade and easy to put together. I haven't yet met a _great_ paleo pizza dough, but the sauce in this cookbook is among the best-AND-easiest from my extensive collection.
Many of these recipes scratch my "I miss eating..." itch. I haven't gotten around to making the "takeout fake-out" menu yet, but I'm looking forward to it as it includes: steamed spring rolls (using cabbage leaves); shrimp fried cauliflower rice; long beans with mushroom sauce; General Tso's chicken (using a cup of arrowroot as the "breading" flour). I'm also thinking about my New Year's menu: It might be "A taste of Cuba," with Yuca and garlic sauce; Cuban baby back ribs; grilled fish; saffron "rice," coconut flan. Sounds good, doesn't it?
The book is divided by event. It includes 17 possible gatherings, each with a menu, shopping/preparations and recipes. The gatherings included are:
Casual Sunday brunch
Springtime tea party
A night in Tuscany
Midsummer garden party
A taste of Cuba
New Year's eve cocktail party
I recommend this to anyone who follows a more primal style paleo lifestyle.
