The Kitchen Commune: Meals to Heal and Nourish Everyone at Your Table

We rated this book:


This book lets you nourish your body’s health while deliciously feeding those you love, even with different dietary needs. Main dishes are a high-quality animal protein, prepared simply, and dressed up with the included condiments or sauces. There are sides of salads and other dishes, and even a few sweet endings.

I was very impressed with the Vanilla Ice Cream, made with coconut cream and maple syrup; its lovely creamy consistency and mouthfeel, and subtle coconut flavor, is even better with a berry or other dessert sauce. My family was delighted with the Spanish Frittata with Spinach; this oven omelet even pleased my picky, veg-avoidant teen. Other recipes I’m excited to try include a Curried Tuna Salad, some Middle Eastern Spiced Bison, and a Chocolate Sweet Potato Frosting, which sounds amazing. As does every one of the vegetable sides!

Although some recipes, as written, may not suit your tastes (I thought the House Chimichurri needed the missing, but traditional, chilies), what I love very best about this book (aside from the gorgeous photos) is the flexibility to find recipes that work for you. With so many recipes, there are many options for everyone, without the need to sacrifice either flavor or health.
