Coming Feb 2014 – My First Cookbook!

It’s time to let you guys in on a little secret. For the past year I’ve been working on a cookbook, which I’m calling The Ancestral Table: Traditional Recipes for a Paleo Lifestyle.

The book will feature over 100 classic traditional and international recipes, much like what you’ve come to expect here on The Domestic Man. All dishes are gluten-free and Paleo-friendly. Many of the recipes are brand new, while others are updated versions of those already on this site, re-developed from the ground-up. I’ve even added a couple of dessert recipes – a first for me.

The recipes in my book will be aligned with my belief that safe starches (like white rice, tapioca, and potatoes) and some forms of dairy have a place in the modern interpretation of the Paleo diet. Essentially, this is the first Perfect Health Diet cookbook – so it’s only fitting that Paul Jaminet graciously provided the foreword.

If you follow a more strict interpretation of Paleo, never fear! The Ancestral Table is mostly filled with strictly Paleo offerings, and the book will also include a substitution guide for anyone wanting to convert the other recipes to a “cleaner” version of Paleo while maintaining maximum taste.

More info can be found on the book’s landing page. It will be out on February 11, 2014 – just four months away! – and is available for pre-order on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

I hope you’re as excited about the book as I am. I think you’ll really like it.

  1. Congratulations. You are the best, and I know you have a hit on your hands. You are definitely one of the best blogs on the Web and one of my top favorite blogs. I’ve preordered the book, and I will probably order several more to give as gifts.


    1. your recipes are simple yet innovative (rice paper tostadas), where most blogs push complex with traditional results (every fresh herb but the kitchen sink meatloaf and cookies with 30 different glutenless ingridients).

      I dont usally get excited over cook books but i await yours eagerly


  2. There it is!! :D
    This is awesome beyond words Russ, congratulations! :)

    Wish you all the best with the launch (and will try not to blame you too much for making the darkest and longest months of the year seem even longer while waiting for it, haha!) ;)
