Bowls of Love Cookbook by Stamford Resident, Ali Rakowski: Paleo & Gluten Free

CTbites Team

One of the first Paleo soup cookbooks to hit the stands, Bowls of Love by AliRakowski is a seasonal soup cookbook with dozens of fresh, healthy recipes that are 100% Paleo, gluten-free and dairy-free.

Bowls of Love takes the concept of holistic health from the stove to your bowl, combining vegetables, locally sourced meat and homemade stock to create a plethora of soups that are both healthy and delicious. Based on the Paleo Diet, the recipes in this cookbook consist of lean meats, fruits, vegetables, healthy oils, nuts and seeds.

Unlike other Paleo cookbooks on the market, Bowls of Love has one main distinction – it focuses on the fact that every food we eat has a story. Each meal has a memory attached to it, and every plate and bowl holds those stories.

Author AliRakowski shared this concept with 44 of her friends and family, and asked them to send her bowls that spoke to them. Overwhelmed by the joy, love and bowls she received in response, she crafted a seasonal Paleo soup for each one, stringing the recipes and stories together to create dozens of dishes filled with love.
