Friday Favorites: Beyond Bacon Cookbook (Plus see a bonus recipe from the book!)
You can see how happy I was to get a review copy of the Beyond Bacon cookbook before it released to the public 🙂 I want you to know that even though I was gifted a copy, I was under no obligation to write a review or feature it on my website.
But this book is so beautifully done that I couldn’t help but post it as one of my favorites. It truly is. I am treasuring my copy and have so many sticky notes of recipes that I can’t wait to try (I’ve already made a handful of them and they were a hit!).
For those wondering, this is hardbound book by the ever so popular, Paleo Parents (authors of Eat Like a Dinosaur). In fact, when I first got this book, it was so gorgeous that I wasn’t sure if I wanted to set it on my coffee table or use it in my kitchen 😉 Here’s a sample of the brilliant and fun design work and photography throughout:
Even though there are 100+ recipes with beautifully vibrant, mouth watering photographs for each recipe, this isn’t just a cookbook! There’s comprehensive information on how and why to buy whole animals from local farmers. You’ll find some serious science on the health benefits of pork and saturated fat. There’s even an entire chapter dedicated to getting started with basics like rendering your own lard, making sausage, keeping stock on hand for any and everything, as well as how to smoke and cure your own meat.
Here’s a little sneak peek of the Table of Contents and all the goodness that you have to look forward to:
As with any cookbook, the dessert section is always my favorite so I know you’d expect nothing less from me than a small peek at it, too 😉
Here’s a picture of the first thing I made from the book. It’s called the Porktastic Frittata. Don’t you love the name?! And yes, it was as good as it looks!
The Paleo Parents are allowing me to share one of my favorite recipes in the book: Asian Short Ribs. Hope you enjoy this sneak peek recipe! And know there’s over a hundred more drool worthy recipes that await you!
Right now you can pre-order the book on Amazon. It officially releases on July 2nd and I can’t wait for you to get a copy so we can rave about it together and discuss our favorite “Beyond Bacon” recipes 🙂
