I made a list of all the ingredients that are used by the various areas of Blue Zone. And I have started making several of the recipes. All are so good--so far.
They are all high in protein and NO meat. One of my favorite cookbooks for sure.

Really great cookbook. Simple recipes with very few and very simple ingredients. The book is divided, very interestingly, into the blue zone areas with the corresponding recipes (instead of by meal type). Some ingredients might be harder to find depending on where you live.

The Blue Zones Kitchen includes recipes from the so-called “blue zones,” areas where the residents (particularly older ones who adhere to the more traditional diets) live longer than anywhere else on Earth, largely because of what they eat.

I’ve tried three of the recipes—roasted vegetables, sweet potato tarts, and a ratatouille—and all were approachable and included ingredients I was easily able to find at my local grocery store (some ingredients might be a little tougher). The sweet potato tart

Thought I'd enjoy it since I'd read Blue Zones and loved it...not the case. Very disappointed in the recipes. They were full of ingredients that should not be included in whole food plant based eating, i.e. white sugar, white flour and white rice. In addition, they seemed to include items regular grocery stores in smaller cities would not have. It was a Christmas gift that will now be returned.

Great book , great recipes!!
The Blue Zones Kitchen is a lovely cookbook, with recipes that sound delicious, and is a worthy addition to the Blue Zones library. The cover is striking. The recipes manage to be both healthful and delicious (sounding, haven't tried any of them yet). And the sections on each Blue Zone region, complete with lovely food, people, and scenery photography, interviews, regional history and culture, and versions of local recipes are all fascinating. There ARE a lot of recipes that contain gluten, many ...more

This books is getting a lot of hype right now. The narrative is compelling, and the the photos are gorgeous! It is bright, and glossy, and really a beautiful book. So why only three stars? Well, almost every recipe in this book seemed to be centered around chickpeas or sweet potatoes, and those just happen to be two veggies I really do not like. I am willing to include them once in a while, but I am just never going to center my diet around those two foods, so for me, this just isn’t going to be ...more

I've been intrigued by the subject of The Blue Zones, so when this book released, I had to have it. Beautifully written with lovely photos and loaded with information and inspiration. Not only is it filled with recipes but also the most delightful stories. A great read!

Some great stuff here, especially if you're looking to improve your health and introduce more plant foods into your diet. Beans are the cornerstone of Blue Zone eating and a majority of recipes in the book include legumes of some sort. I love the overview of each zone and how the book is divided into the Zones. Look for additional bits of info scattered throughout the recipes sections, including the pictoral overview of the foods defining each Zone at the end of the book. Now I'm off to make ...more

This beautifully illustrated cookbook features plant-based recipes from the Blue Zones. Some of the recipes featured ingredients that would be difficult to acquire in my small town. The recipes I tried were easy, delicious, and healthy. This book has to go back to the library tomorrow, but I am considering purchasing my own copy.

Beautiful book! Lovely photos on most every page, just enough introduction to each Blue Zone region, wonderful recipes. Great addition to my Blue Zones library shelf!

I don’t know what I expected but this blend of cooking and tourism didn’t work for me.

Cannot wait to research more about the Blue Zones and get involved.

Interesting, many recipes used ingredients common in that region but not so much in my area. I did not feel excited to try any of recipes which is a hallmark of a good cookbook in my opinion.
