New Cook Book

I know I am foolish, my wife keeps on telling me that as well as 'will you never learn'.
Bought a new cook book. Another one. 'How many do you need?' was one of the politer comments.
Paleo Cook Book For Beginners. I told you I was foolish.
This cook book, and here I quote..'The Paleo Diet is based on the natural diet our Paleolithic-era ancestors would have followed between 2.5 million and 10,000 years ago.'
Sounds good? It did to me, back to the foods we evolved on...must be good. Problem is the books' American. Below are listed some of the meals, described beautifully with full colour pictures:-
Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes, Blueberry Muffins, Creamy Mushroom Bisque, Sesame Kale Chips, Rosemary Roasted Chicken, Coconut-Crusted Baked Tilapia, Maple Baked Apples and Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Changes my whole outlook on the hunter gatherers, one can imagine them in a cave sitting down to one of the above.
This on-line shopping can be addictive, especially if one is foolish.no smilies

i dont think i would be trying to milk an auroch for the creamy bisques and some of the kitchen "bag"ingredients would be quite a canoe ride from yorkshire :lol:

i recon a downsizer paleo cook book might be a bit more realistic ,some of my favorite things would have been very familiar to a shoreline dweller of 10000bc judging that their shell middens and my shell middens have the same contents ie raw and toasted shellfish ,toasted hazel nut shells etc etc .

things such as raw horseradish fed white butterfly caterpillars dont leave an archeological footprint but they should be in a paleo recipe book,wood boring beetle grubs are pretty good as well :wink:

i recon ray meer's recipes are probably closer than a lot of the "fashion"cook books .no smilies

Part of the introduction....'The Paleo Diet is based on the natural diet our Paleolithic-era ancestors would have followed between 2.5 million and 10,000 years ago. During the Paleolithic era, humans subsisted on foods that could be gathered from the earth fresh fruits and vegetables, roots, nuts and seeds as well as some fish and game meat. Grains and dairy products were not part of the Paleolithic-era diet because agriculture had not yet been developed.
In this book you will learn the health benefits the Paleo Diet will provide to you. You will also receive 30 unique and delicious recipes that meet the requirements of the Paleo Diet.'

if it is usa based i suspect it should range from salmon caviar and bear pemmican in the north to toasted rattlesnake and yucca stem in the south :lol:
