My criticism is that some of the elimination diet-friendly recipes do in fact contain un-"friendly" ingredients, such as corn, red pepper flakes, and miso (even if it is made with barley, it doesn't mean that soy is not the first ingredient!).
However, I love this cookbook for the delicious recipes. While I agree some of the writing is very conversational in tone (I like that style, but this gets a little silly). My review is about the actual recipes here and they are great! This book has really become a go-to for me along side Plenty- Ottolenghi's, the book Perfect Vegetables from the folks at America's Test Kitchen/Cook's Magazine and other classics from Jaques Pepin, Julia Child, etc. While I own many, many, many cookbooks (Simply Natural, several Raw cookbooks, The Silver Palate, ones from Phaidon, etc- I love to cook and I am nutritionally focused), I deeply appreciate that this book contains excellent, interesting flavor combinations with easy to prepare, healthy recipes that fit into the largely vegan (sometimes fish when I have guests or when I travel), whole grain food I embrace. I suppose I fall into the flexitarian/pescetarian category. GPs approach is that her foundation is more about great food that falls into an anti-inflammatory, vegan, GF type of lifestyle with a heavy emphasis on nutrition is what appeals to me. There are also meat and fish recipes here because she cooks these for friends, family ,etc. In the end, it's the delicious recipes I love. The grilled fish is outstanding (sometimes I use more iIalian flavors, sometimes asian), so are the two beet soups, I particularly love the beet greens soup as well as the eggplant recipe with the date/tahini sauce. Some of her "classics" are here too with the cucumber avocado soup and her carrot dressing.
Despite the lack of recipe photos, I find the recipes to be fairly simple, but also delicious. Most of them don't call for too many of those exotic ingredients that nobody has in their pantry. There is also a section of kid-friendly recipes, and my kids approve.
While not my favorite, I think the book makes a great addition to the cookbook shelf, and I go to it often.
