Powell's Books Presents Michelle Tam in Conversation With Gregory Gourdet
Michelle Tam knows that the healthiest meal is the one you make yourself, so she’s all about getting you off your butts and into the kitchen. Whether you’re cooking for yourself, whipping up a family dinner, or preparing a special-occasion feast, Nom Nom Paleo: Let’s Go! (Andrews McMeel) — co-written with Henry Fong — will inspire you with deliciously nourishing meals. Weeknight suppers should be healthy and flavor-packed but also fast and simple. Weekends and celebrations, on the other hand, are the perfect excuse to craft elevated (but easy!) crowd-pleasers. Nom Nom Paleo: Let’s Go! offers crazy-delicious recipes for all occasions, and every single one is free of grains, gluten, dairy, and refined sugar. Better yet? No one in your family will notice what’s missing! As always, Nom Nom Paleo’s recipes reflect the diverse cuisines Tam grew up with and culinary ideas from her travels. Often Asian-inspired, Tam's unfussy recipes maximize flavor, optimize whole foods, and are presented with photos of each step so they’re absolutely foolproof — even for novice cooks! Tam will be joined in conversation by Gregory Gourdet, Kann chef and owner and author of Everyone's Table: Global Recipes for Modern Health.
