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.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sure I’ll get it either way!

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.

Are the serving sizes more for single people or families or a little in between?

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

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.

Not to rush you or anything….but I too would love it for my ipad!

Does the book contain a shopping list? Does it also have a list of ‘must have on hand at all times’?

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.

Thanks,

Brenda

Pre-ordered it, so looking forward to it arriving! ๐Ÿ™‚ Not sure about that Dutch Oven chicken though – I mean, I know we’re primal and all, but that could be a bit smelly.

I am looking forward to this BIG time! Can’t wait to do some of this in my newly renovated kitchen!

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

Got mine, yesterday. Benefits of living near Malibu (well 80 miles away), I guess.

Can’t wait for my book! Quick question. Does anybody know if the cookbook will have a nutritional breakdown of each recipe?

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.

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!

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.

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!

I pre-ordered my cookbook on the first day of pre-ordering and still have not received my copy of it…I live in Canada and am not sure if that is the reason for the delay. Could you please let me know when I can expect it, I am getting very anxious to try new recipes out!!

Question about the Bison chili. Just making some now. But the recipe calls for either 2-3 slices of uncooked bacon or 24oz of pancitta. 24 oz doesn’t seem right – that’s a ton! Is that a typo?
