The Primal Blueprint Cookbook Now Shipping!

As I announced in yesterday’s newsletter, The Primal Blueprint Cookbook is now shipping.

The Primal Blueprint team is furiously packing to get all pre-orders out the door and into your hands as soon as possible. All pre-orders should be in the mail in the next few business days. Shipped USPS Media Mail the books should begin arriving at your doorsteps in the next week or so.

I’m absolutely thrilled with how it turned out. Take a look at the photos below for a taste of what’s headed your way, and if you haven’t grabbed a copy yet order one today and you’ll still get the free Primal Blueprint Poster and free S&H. (Free S&H for U.S. residents only. Reduced S&H for international orders.)

Stay tuned for today’s regularly scheduled blog post.

If you’re ready to begin eating like Grok pick up a copy today and start getting Primal!

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. The book looks great, but do you think that you will be making an ebook version of both your books, i all ready have too many hard books and i really prefer digital copies, my laptop is so much easier to carry around then a ton of books when i travel.

  2. Bison Chili, awesome! Does anyone else think Dutch ovens are a total pain? We used them in Boy Scouts. They took forever to get warm, and you could never get them clean. They said it should not really be washed but just wiped with vegetable oil. What that actually resulted in was a piece of metal that left oily black ash on whatever it touched.

    • They’re a little pricey, but ceramic coated dutch ovens rock for braises. Lodge makes a 6 quart one you can get from Amazon for less than $50. In general, though, cast iron tends to be heavy and brittle, and it requires more care than I have time to give it :-)

  5. This is so awesome!!!!! I can not wait to get my hands on this treasure :)

    One of my top 10 foods is swiss chard – exciting to see that as one of the featured recipes!!!!

  7. Wow Mark it looks so great! I’m *really* hoping to get an iPad this year, is there a lot of work and expense involved in publishing a digital version? Just wondering :) I’m sure I’ll get it either way!

    Hannah wrote on May 20th, 2010
  8. I am so excited! I am sure I will be jumping up and down when my copy finally arrives.

    Jacinda wrote on May 20th, 2010
  9. John: it sounds like you were using the old-school cast-iron? Enameled ones are definitely nicer (just more expensive).

    I am so excited for my new cookbook to arrive! Between that and “Nourishing Traditions”, which arrived yesterday, I forsee a lot of kitchen time in my future.

  10. It looks beautiful – I can’t wait!

    Stephanie wrote on May 20th, 2010
  11. Oooh, that swiss chard frittata is calling my name. I can’t wait to see what other yummy primal goodness you have in store for us!

    Jenn wrote on May 20th, 2010
  12. I can’t wait! I am running out of cooking ideas!

  13. Wish it were spiral-bound to lay flat while cooking… but can’t wait to try some new stuff.

  14. Is the cookbook dairy free?

    Em wrote on May 20th, 2010
    • There are a couple recipes that include dairy and others where dairy is entirely optional. The vast majority include no dairy.

  15. BON APPETIT! :)

    Donna wrote on May 20th, 2010
  16. Are the serving sizes more for single people or families or a little in between?

    Like 2-4 servings a recipe or 6-8?

    Anne wrote on May 20th, 2010
    • There’s a good mix of serving size, ranging from single servings to 6-8 servings. Of course, you can always scale up or down as needed.

      Mark Sisson wrote on May 20th, 2010
  17. Oooo that chili looks amazing (I love chili). And that looks liken avocado garnish!

    Yup. That’ll be my first recipe. 😀

  18. Can’t wait to get it. The bison chili will be up pretty quickly.

  19. You made my day so much better!!!

    Bejmarn wrote on May 20th, 2010
  20. Bison chili looks fantastic. I am a bison fanatic and cannot wait to try this recipe. The Swiss Chard frittata looks great too. I can’t wait to get my book. Thanks Mark.

    Chase wrote on May 20th, 2010
  21. I’m definitely getting this book. Just thinking, it is cheaper to buy from amazon or from your website direct. I live in New Zealand so I need to consider international shipping costs.

    Janet wrote on May 20th, 2010
    • S&H from my shopping cart ( charges $9.95 for international orders. See how that compares for you and keep in mind that if you buy from me directly you get the free poster. Thanks, Janet! I hope you enjoy it.

      Mark Sisson wrote on May 20th, 2010
  22. Yeah! Can’t wait to get it!
    Not to rush you or anything….but I too would love it for my ipad!

    Louise wrote on May 20th, 2010
  23. Does the book contain a shopping list? Does it also have a list of ‘must have on hand at all times’?

    Marc wrote on May 20th, 2010
    • A shopping list is coming with the soon to be released “Primal Blueprint Guide to Foraging in the Modern World”. This publication will be part of the Primal Leap Kit due out later this year. Stay tuned!

      Mark Sisson wrote on May 20th, 2010
  24. When will the free (bonus) cookbooks from the push to get the primal blueprint to #1 be shipped?

    Jolly wrote on May 20th, 2010
    • They’re being shipped along with all the pre-orders. If you qualified for the free cookbook for the Amazon #1 push expect to see your free copy soon!

      Mark Sisson wrote on May 20th, 2010
  25. Got mine today!!!!! WooHoo!!!!

    Pamela wrote on May 20th, 2010
  26. Will our preorder to Australia be sent out right away? We may be moving to New Zealand by the end of the month and I am concerned about getting this cookbook before we leave. I didn’t know we could be moving when my daughter ordered the book. I’m looking forward to this…..I’m feeling in a rut with my usual recipes.



    Brenda wrote on May 20th, 2010
    • I’m having my team look into this for you, Brenda. They’ll be contacting you.

      Mark Sisson wrote on May 21st, 2010
  27. Just in time! I’m getting hungry. :)

    Danielle wrote on May 20th, 2010
    • Guess what came in the mail a few minutes after this post? Woohooo! Thanks Mark.

      Danielle wrote on May 21st, 2010
  28. Oh yes, can’t wait! The bison chili is calling my hubby’s name already… swiss chard frittata is calling mine… good thing this stuff is healthy or else I’d get FAT!

    Deanna wrote on May 20th, 2010
  29. Awesome! Can’t wait to get it! :)

    cfmuh wrote on May 20th, 2010
  30. Pre-ordered it, so looking forward to it arriving! :-) Not sure about that Dutch Oven chicken though – I mean, I know we’re primal and all, but that could be a bit smelly.

    Dave wrote on May 20th, 2010
  31. I am looking forward to this BIG time! Can’t wait to do some of this in my newly renovated kitchen!

    Mike Cheliak wrote on May 21st, 2010
  32. I think I will buy it. What makes me hesitate though is the use of American units: Cups, ounces, fahrenheits and whatnots. I want to simplify my cooking experience, not sit there with a calculator. :)

    Edin wrote on May 21st, 2010
  33. Got mine, yesterday. Benefits of living near Malibu (well 80 miles away), I guess.

    Turling wrote on May 21st, 2010
  34. Can’t wait for my book! Quick question. Does anybody know if the cookbook will have a nutritional breakdown of each recipe?

    Peter wrote on May 21st, 2010
  35. I got mine in the mail yesterday. And I live all the way in Alabama! Looks awesome, and (a weird compliment I know) but I love the way the pages feel. Sturdy enough for me to take into the kitchen! Can’t wait to try this.

    Sharon wrote on May 22nd, 2010
  36. Looking forward to getting my hands on the book. I am still smacking my forehead for not getting a few Grok shirts at the same time as the book!

    Matt wrote on May 23rd, 2010
  37. GOT MINE!! We recieved ours yesterday and already have made 4 of the recipes for the week ahead. All have tasted great! VERY very nice quality on this recipe book. We’re excited to try the rest of the recipes.

    Clint White wrote on May 24th, 2010
  38. I received the book today! I skimmed through it and might be making a minimum of 1 recipe a day – no joke. The directions are simple and having 3 pics or more is awesome.

    I love the variety of meats and seasonings. The only cookbook you will ever need is The Primal Blueprint.

    WIth that said, there are plenty of other cookbooks if one wishes to spend more money. But, if one wants just 1, make it this!
