Now out: The Blue Zones American Kitchen

National Geographic publishes lush titles with beautiful photos. This book looks to be no exception to that practice.

This time it is an intriguing look at cooking for health. The “blue zones” are places where people have lived to a very ripe old age. What have they eaten that has sustained them so well? This cookbook offers the general reader and cook the chance to find out and try some of the plant based recipes. The author (in the full book) looks at lifestyles and foods from the Hmong in Minnesota and Quakers in New England to name just two of the groups whose recipes are featured. In completing his task, Mr. Buettner has consulted with over fifty experts.

This review is based upon the sample that was available for advanced reading. From what I can see, this book will make you hungry. Note that I have not seen the entire book.

Many thanks to NetGalley and National Geographic for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
