I was over the moon when Stacy and Matt, also known as Paleo Parents, asked if they could send me an advanced copy of their new cookbook Beyond Bacon-Paleo Recipes That Respect The Whole Hog. And I was even more excited when Beyond Bacon arrived on my door step.  I ripped into the box and was left speechless at the beautiful book that I held in my hands.  Beautiful from front to back and in every way!  Stacy and Matt walk you through all that you need to know in this book.  It’s not just a cookbook, it’s a guide to respecting the whole hog, which is really important to Paleo and following a lifestyle similar to those of our ancestors. Also inside, they tell the story of a ranch that does it right, and what “right” means. They tell you about the different breeds of pigs you might come across. How to find and afford pastured pork. They tell you why pigs raised correctly are healthy, and why pigs that are not raised correctly are not (which many of us I think still don’t know why this knowledge is so important to have).  They show you what a cut sheet looks like and how to navigate it, so if you do decide to order a large part of the animal, you’ll know what to expect and can go into it like you know what your doing.  And then there is the photography! The book features the breathtaking food photography of Aimee Buxton – which you wouldn’t believe, but this was her first venture into food photography. Amazing! Truly amazing!


While Beyond Bacon is indeed full of so much beauty from content to picture, but my favorite of course are the recipes!  So many!  And so many recipes that I can’t wait to dive into and try!  Of course the hardest part is trying to figure out which I will try first.  I mean how could you not want to try all of these at one time!  I mean yummy….


Stacy, Matt, and Aimee….amazing job!  A truly beautiful book! I applaud you on this amazing book.  Your hard work and determination shines on every page.

For those of you who haven’t purchased this book already, I simply ask…what in the heck are you waiting for?  Honestly this is a must have for your Paleo Kitchen Cookbook collection!  You won’t be disappointed, but you will be drooling as you flip through the mouthwatering pages.
