I find it a bit odd to say I really enjoyed a cookbook, but I truly did! This was a very fun and beautiful cookbook. All the pictures made me want to recreate the recipes. I enjoyed learning a bit more about Antonis journey to join Netflixs Queer Eye and all his write ups about the recipes were amusing and very informative. There are lots of culinary tricks that he gives which are very valuable. These can include how to be more efficient in the kitchen, to actually making the recipe or where to find the ingredients. Throughout the cookbook, you really get the sense that he loves cooking and that he gets joy out of it. That feeling is infectious and made me want to cook something new. This is amazing since I feel like all I do is cook and I dont want to spend more time in the kitchen than I have to! I think too that some of his recipes can be adapted to AIP and SIFO. I havent tried any as it will be difficult to do with the mold/histamine restrictions, but I will try some when I get the restrictions lifted. Be warned though, he uses a lot of dairy, so some of the recipes I didnt even look at for adaptation. Overall I had a lot of fun with this cookbook!
Some of the recipes that I thought could be adapted would be:
- Southern Italian/Cold NYC Winter Salad
- Carrot Ribbon Salad
- Braised Red Cabbage with Pears
- Cauliflower Steaks with Turmeric
- Five-Onion Soup
- Cast-Iron Butter-Basted Steak
