To all my readers - Eat Drink Paleo Cookbook has now joined the family of Penguin Books  (Australia and UK). This is very exciting as my book will soon be available in more Australian and UK bookshops and online retailers. That means that Eat Drink Paleo Cookbook has to go on a little hiatus (off sale) until January 28th 2015 in Australia and March 2015 in the UK.

For Australian customers, you can still pre-order a copy today at a special price from links below. For UK customers, pre-order links will soon be available. For everyone else, we're in conversations with worldwide publishers and distributors so I hope the book will also be available in your country.

Why This Cookbook Is For You

  • You like good food - eating it, cooking it and drooling over pictures of it.
  • You want something damn tasty, that’s also really good for you.
  • You understand the importance of eating well for health and wellbeing.
  • You’re trying to lose weight or you’re gluten or wheat intolerant.
  • You’re intrigued by this paleo diet everyone’s talking about.
  • You’re a paleo expert already and looking for something fresh.
  • You want to make food that’s healthy without being boring, bland or too restrictive.

About The Book

All recipes are free from grains, gluten, processed sugar and other no-nos of the paleo philosophy. Far from being restrictive, they showcase the rich flavours, varied ingredients and fun, inventive cooking that can be enjoyed as part of the paleo lifestyle.

Peppered with personal stories and with a realistic approach (even I can't deny the occasional 'naughty' sweet or a little dairy), the book takes home-cooks on a real-food journey from breakfast (hazelnut pancakes with blood orange syrup, anyone?) through to dessert (did you say chilli chocolate mousse?).

Super-tasty dinners (hello, pulled-pork tacos), glamorous garden produce (zucchini carbonara… there is a god!), sauces and sides (mayo, dressings, butters), easy entertaining recipes (I'll have oysters five ways, thanks!) and tasty tipples (mmm… lychee lemongrass sangria…) all await to blow your mind, no matter if you're paleo follower or a curious connoisseur.

Complete with an introduction to paleo nutrition and philosophy; a handy inventory of foods to focus on and avoid; and user-friendly recipes and measurements, Eat Drink Paleo Cookbook is a must-have for the modern-day hunter-gatherer.

Printed book is still available on for US customers and for UK and European customers.

What People Are Saying About It


“Eat Drink Paleo Cookbook is a vibrant, colourful illustration of just how tasty Paleo food can be, in a way that is in keeping with my personal philosophy about food and health. You can genuinely see the absolute love and passion Irena has for creating meals packed with goodness, and full of flavour. Food should be nourishing, it should be a celebration of health and happiness! Eating Paleo is about finding an individualised fit for you and Irena highlights this, giving variations of her creations to cater for an individualised approach.

One of the main concerns I hear from my clients when first familiarising themselves with the Paleo template is that they believe it will be dull, boring food, protein heavy and time consuming to prepare! Well this couldn't be further from the truth and Irena showcases perfectly a wonderful mix of fresh seasonal vegetarian and meat dishes and covers the time of day everyone struggles with meal ideas - breakfast! I love the 'wake up baby' breakfast section and can see I will be getting good mileage out of some of those recipes! I will definitely be recommending my clients purchase a copy of her cookbook to assist them on their Paleo journey in the kitchen!”

As you’d know, we’re not much into fad diets. Healthy eating is all about munching on a wide variety of whole, unprocessed foods that, ideally, have arrived at your table with minimal harm to the planet. So why feature a recipe book that refers to the paleo diet, a way of eating that focuses on foods that were around in hunter-gatherer days rather than agriculture-based staples? Well, take away the paleo label and these recipes by blogging foodie Irena Macri are as healthy (and tasty) as all get-out. Macri isn’t didactic (she eats paleo 80 per cent of the time, indulging in morsels like gelato, rice and cheese for the balance) and her cookbook emphasises real food and natural ingredients. All her recipes are free from grains, gluten, legumes, processed sugar, artificial ingredients and chemicals. Best of all, though, she makes cooking fun.
