    1 thought on “The Real Food Cookbook: Traditional Dishes for Modern Cooks

    1. First of all, there are many cookbooks with the title "The Real Food Cookbook," so you would think someone would have known about this in the earlier production stages and asked for a more original title. The author fully admits she is presenting her ideas on food and food consumption, which is fine, but rather limiting. Why would you buy this book, for example? The recipes are dead simple--one could argue not even real recipes, and you aren't offered what I would describe as a new, innovative w [...]

    2. I try to eat more whole foods, so this was preaching to the choir for me. However, the prose accompanying each recipe could have benefited from an editor.

    3. Just okay. Super basic recipes and several non-recipes. Nothing surprising or unexpected. If I need to know how to roast a chicken, devil eggs, or make a Ceasar salad, I'll google it.

    4. As the subtitle reads, this book is full of "traditional dishes for modern cooks." The author describes changing from trying to eat a supposedly more healthy vegetarian diet, to changing to what she calls "traditional foods," including meat, dairy, and fat which are often disparaged as unhealthy. There are lots of yummy sounding basics that look very easy to pull together quickly. It's broken down like a traditional cookbook with appetizers, salads, soups, sides, main dishes, etc. But, I like th [...]

    5. I enjoyed reading this book. However, if you subscribed to belief that eating whole foods and eating less processed foods is healthy, this book is more of the same. I tried making the flourless chocolate cake. It took twice as long as the recipe stated and the finished cake was so soft I was unable to cut a and remove a clean slice. I thought it tasted good, but the kids thought it was a little bit bitter. I'll try the apple crisp, but I don't think I'll be purchasing this book.This author, like [...]

    6. Right into my cart! I would have been happier if this author would have used photographs of the cooking process, but this book was amazing even without them and she was pretty descriptive in her "discussions" of the recipe. There were so many incredible recipes in this book that weren't only ethnic/Jewish, but just good, solid cooking for any dinner table.

    7. I was surprised to not like this cookbook as much as I thought I would. I love Nina Planck's Real Food non-fiction titles so I was looking forward to checking out her cookbook too. But there just weren't many recipes I really liked, just a handful from the whole book. I'm glad I just borrowed it from the library instead of purchasing.

    8. Notes:good, but not great; I already make most of the foods featured here and common/traditional recipes are available online anyway -- who is really going to change their meatloaf or egg salad recipe because of a cookbook anyway; I found only a couple recipes to try; on the plus side it has lots of photos and the layout is appealing

    9. As a huge fan of Nina Planck's other books I was excited to see this at the library. It offers great recipes for those following a real-food/traditional foods diet. If you eat WAPF diet this is a more modern take on traditional foods and I found the recipes to be more fun and approachable than the Nourishing Traditions standards.

    10. Wonderful collection of recipes made with fresh and 'real' ingredients. The recipes are simple, yet have a lovely presentation of colors and flavors. Beautiful photos and entertaining stories. Well done!

    11. Basic real-food recipes. None that I was especially interested in. I had a hard time getting past my gut-reaction dislike to the author. Weird, because I enjoyed some of her other stuff.
