I love Gregory Gourdet on Top Chef, not just because his cooking is beautiful and inspiring to watch, but also because his generous and kind spirit shows through as he talks about what food means to him. Here he offers kindly advice, and patiently explains the method and reasoning behind his delicious, paleo-friendly dishes. He walks the reader through every step of the preparation and gives tips on the best products. Anyone looking to cook decadent food that is good for your body will absolutely love this.— Jax
