So the day has finally come; My Paleo Patisserie is here and I couldn't be more excited to share it with you! I know that most of you are probably here for the AMAZING KitchenAid + Blendtec giveaway so don't worry....we'll get there pretty soon. :)
Before we get there though, I wanted to take just a second to share a few details about why I'm so excited about how this book has turned out. So here are some of my favorite things, in no particular order...
- Everything about the book is designed to set your inner pastry chef free! No matter how timid he/she might be....this book will make creating beautiful desserts a realistic possibility for you.
- I've never much liked restraints, so I designed the layout of this book to do more than just give you a bunch of set recipes. Instead, I went with a "choose your own adventure" style approach to baking. Each section shares some of my favorite combinations and then gives you the basic, core elements you need to mix and match to your heart's desire. As you'll see below, I've even included pages designed to lay out all the options and set your creativity free.
- I've gotten a lot of questions about the ingredients I used in the book. First off, one of my goals was to make a book that took a fairly classic approach to the "traditional" Paleo ingredients. While there may be some debate about what that means, the bottom line is that I tried to keep this as simple and accessible as possible. So while I didn't make these recipes to work for absolutely everyone (since that would be impossible), I did make something that would work for everyone. There are nut-based cakes and nut-free cakes. There are tons of egg-free recipes and others that are almost ALL eggs. :) The point is...this book has a lot of great content and no matter what sort of limitations you're dealing with, it's very likely going to have something that will work for you.
Below are some sample pages from the book and the contest entry form is at the bottom. Good luck....and happy baking!!!
