Paleoista and Pete Evans: A Paleo Perfect Pair

When I was approached recently to do a cooking demo with Australian Chef Pete Evans, I jumped on the opportunity in a heartbeat!

During his recent US tour gathering information from  a plethora of experts on a range of healthy living approaches, including Paleo, for his new international paleo cooking series, Pete has been filming interviews and cooking demos to create an extremely broad range of content.

With me, an excursion to the Chelsea Market to procure fresh veggies, local wild fish, grass fed meat, all from within a very close proximity was also part of the plan.

We had a lovely day chatting Paleo principles, finding our way around the numerous interesting shops within the market and finally, coming back to our NY Pied-a-terre to whip up some food!

We opted for four recipes from Paleoista as a starting point, then put our own spin on a few, adding a little bit of spice here and a new cooking technique there.  

Cooking with a trained chef of Pete’s calibre was truly an honor and proved to be an incredibly fun day, culminating in quite the tasty lunch comprised of blackened mackerel on sauteed rapini, grass fed meatballs on spaghetti squash, raw kale fusion and, of course, we saved just enough room for a signature Raw Paleoista Truffle, dusted in sumac (another contribution from his years of experience with new (to me) and interesting spices.

Stay tuned to his site for updates & watch this space!
