Giveaway: Against All Grain

This past spring I reviewed several cookbooks. That was before my new book Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry came out in June. With the publication of this, my third book, I decided to take a break from reviewing other books for a couple of months. In what seems to be an apparent nuclear arms race of Paleo cookbooks this summer, I wanted to stay focused on my own labor of love, a book that came out just a few weeks ago.

However, when a couple of outstanding Paleo cookbooks caught my eye this summer I immediately changed my stance. One of those very special books is Against All Grain by Danielle Walker.

With over 150 recipes and stunning photography, Danielle has created a phenomenal book that is more than worthy of adding to your collection. This amazing Paleo cookbook has everything from donuts to lasagna, and so much more. My favorite recipe is the one for brownies –absolutely delicious. So good in fact, that I’ve made them five times.

This book is truly impressive in both the quality and quantity of recipes. And while I love all of Danielle’s recipes, I am completely obsessed with her food styling and photography. She has an incredible eye and in my opinion is one of the best food photographers out there. I have no doubt that Against All Grain will land on the New York Times Bestseller list –it is a total winner in every way.

I am giving away a copy of Danielle’s fantastic new cookbook today. To be entered just leave a comment below. The winner will be selected at random today August 19th at 9:30am MDT.

UPDATE: This giveaway is now over. The winner of the Against All Grain giveaway was Lori. Thanks to everyone who participated!
