A few weeks ago, we were honored to receive an advance copy of The New Yiddish Kitchen by Simone Miller and Jennifer Robins and yesterday, it officially published for the world to enjoy! While we’re not Jewish, we appreciate the delicious heritage the Jewish tradition has to offer.
In case you’ve been living under a rock lately, a new Paleo cookbook is out and we know it’s going to do very well. The Paleo Kitchen: Finding Primal Joy in Modern Cooking by Juli Bauer (of PaleOMG) and George Bryant (of Civilized Caveman Cooking) is an exciting new addition to the Paleo cookbook sphere. We’ve been enjoying reading and cooking through our advanced review copy. If you haven’t purchased your copy yet, here’s my top three reasons why you should right now.

A Review: The Ancestral Table
The time has come where we may share our thoughts and love for our friend Russ Crandall’s book, The Ancestral Table: Traditional Recipes for a Paleo Lifestyle. We met Russ just before he started the journey towards crafting this book at a get-together hosted by The Paleo Parents, and the time has surely flown by. If you don’t yet know of Russ, he is the brain and talent behind The Domestic Man. We’ll wait while you go check that out…
I’m so excited to share with you this review of Food For Humans, the freshman cookbook debut from Michelle Tam and Henry Fong (also known as Nom Nom Paleo and Fitbomb). As I’ve gushed before, this pair was one of my original go-to resources when I first started researching this whole “paleo diet” thing. After following along for the past couple of years, and an iPad app later, these two creatives have put together a great cookbook. If you enjoy their style on the web, you’ll love this book.
I have never been to a book signing event. I have, however, seen the occasional author modestly sitting at a table in the PX (military people, you know what I mean–for those of you who don’t, it’s kind of the Walmart of the military base), somewhat shyly peddling their new book. The look on their faces was always the same: uncertain anxiety, on the verge of completely deflated because no one notices them, never mind stops to check out their book.
The Paleo Parents, Stacy and Matt’s book release and signing event for Beyond Bacon was the exact OPPOSITE. When I arrived, just 20 minutes after things kicked off, The Red Apron was packed. I could barely even get in the door. The Paleo Parents have been a big force not just in the paleosphere, but in our own real food journey–we’ve made many friends at their gatherings and it’s really helped us step up our cooking and blogging acumen.
