  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.

      1. If you do ever consider it, you might go with iBooks since they can be in color.

        I love using my iPad in the kitchen with the Epi & Big Oven aps.

        1. You can download “Kindle for iPad” in the apps store … which allows you to read any Kindle book on your iPad. I just downloaded Primal Blueprint and I can’t wait to read it!

  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.

    1. 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™‚

  3. Looks great! I’m looking forward now to picking that up as well as The Primal Blueprint.. Hopefully next month!

  4. This is so awesome!!!!! I can not wait to get my hands on this treasure ๐Ÿ™‚

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

  5. 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!

  6. I am so excited! I am sure I will be jumping up and down when my copy finally arrives.

  7. 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.

  8. 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!

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

    1. There are a couple recipes that include dairy and others where dairy is entirely optional. The vast majority include no dairy.

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

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

    1. 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.

  11. Oooo that chili looks amazing (I love chili). And that looks liken avocado garnish!

    Yup. That’ll be my first recipe. ๐Ÿ˜€

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

    1. S&H from my shopping cart (primalnutrition.com) 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.

  14. Yeah! Can’t wait to get it!
    Not to rush you or anything….but I too would love it for my ipad!

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

    1. 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!

  16. When will the free (bonus) cookbooks from the push to get the primal blueprint to #1 be shipped?

    1. 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!

  17. 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

    1. Guess what came in the mail a few minutes after this post? Woohooo! Thanks Mark.

  18. 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!

  19. 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.

  20. 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™‚

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

  22. 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.

  23. 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!

  24. 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.

  25. 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!

  26. 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!!

  27. 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?

  28. I have an ipad2….I notice there is a kindle version of your cookbook on amazon….will it work for iPads?
