by Gwyneth Paltrow, Julia Turshen


Gwyneth Paltrow, Academy-Award winning actress and bestselling cookbook author, returns with recipes for the food she eats when she wants to lose weight, look good, and feel more energetic.

Last spring, after a particularly grueling schedule and lapse of overindulgence, Gwyneth Paltrow was feeling fatigued and faint. A visit to her doctor revealed that she was anemic, vitamin D deficient, and that her stress levels were sky high. He prescribed an elimination diet to clear out her system and help her body heal. But this meant no coffee, no alcohol, no dairy, no eggs, no sugar, no shellfish, no deep-water fish, no wheat, no meat, no soy, nothing processed at all!

An avid foodie, Paltrow was concerned that so many restrictions would make mealtime boring, so, together with Julia Turshen, she compiled a collection of 185 delicious, easy recipes that followed her doctor's guidelines. And it worked! After changing her diet, Paltrow healed totally, felt more energetic and looked great.

Now, in IT'S ALL GOOD, she shares the go-to dishes that have become the baseline for the restorative diet she turns to whenever she feels she needs it. Recipes include: Huevos Rancheros, Hummus Tartine with Scallion-Mint Pesto, Salmon Burgers with Pickled Ginger, even Power Brownies, Banana 'Ice Cream,' and more!

SOUTHERN ITALIAN COOKING

by Frank Criniti

Every night at dinner, which lasted around an hour and a half, our table was set beautifully and regally as though it were being set for visitors. Meticulous attention was given to the placement of every plate, every knife, and every dish would marry the next and so the table came alive with an array of colours and textures: there be the staple Calabrese dishes of Pepperonati and Broscelli di Riso, bread that wed soak into a Calabrese tomato salad until it absorbed all the oils and juices, and a Melanzani Parmiagiana.
 
Frank Criniti, the son of an Italian immigrant family, has preserved generations of hand-me-down recipes which form the foundation of his familys well-known restaurants. Unique southern regional dishes are brought to life with lots of tomato and olive oil Arancino, Calabrese tomato salad, Stuffed Mushroom, Calzone, Bruschetta and Carpaccio. Frank also includes the recipe for his mothers Bolognese, fresh pasta, and the Linguine with broccoli his father Francesco would often call for.

by Tovar Cerulli

While still in high school, Tovar Cerulli experimented with vegetarianism and by the age of twenty, he was a vegan. Ten years later, in the face of declining health, he would find himself picking up a rifle and heading into the woods.

Through his personal quest, Tovar Cerulli bridges disparate worldviews and questions moral certainties, challenging both the behavior of many hunters and the illusion of blamelessness maintained by many vegetarians. In this time of intensifying concern over ecological degradation, how do we make peace with the fact that, even in growing organic vegetables, life is sustained by death? Drawing on personal anecdotes, philosophy, history and religion, Cerulli shows how America's overly sanitized habits of consumption and disconnection with our food have resulted in so many of the health and environmental crises we now face.
