The Primal Gourment Cookbook: Whole30 Endorsed: It’s Not A Diet If It’s Delicious

 by Ronny Joseph Lvovski 

The Primal Gourmet Cookbook includes more than 120 gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free recipes, with flavorful fan-favorites and all-new dishes, proving that eating healthy really can be delicious.


Almost every single one of the recipes in The Primal Gourmet Cookbook is Paleo-friendly and Whole30-compliant. While many of the dishes are inspired by my Russian-Jewish roots, my culinary identity is also largely formed by my upbringing in Toronto. With so much diversity in the city’s food scene, I was inspired to create my own recipes with a vast array of cultural influences. At the same time, I hope to share mouthwatering recipes in accessible and healthy ways so that they can be enjoyed by everyone. They’re delicious, versatile, intended for all skill levels, and include tips and techniques to help you become a better home cook.

Advanced Praise For The Primal Gourmet Cookbook

It’s quite possible that I’m at the top of the Ronny Joseph Lvovski Fan Club. Every time I see his smiling face on social media, hear his Latin-inspired kitchen music or watch him take a huge bite out of a freshly made dish, I beam along with him. Ronny is the kind of home cook who inspires pure joy in the kitchen, with his love of fresh ingredients, his encouragement to try new things, and the way he unabashedly savors the heck out of his own finished product. Honestly, if his recipes were just pretty good, I’d still be cooking along with him, he’s that charming and engaging. But his recipes are SO MUCH MORE than just pretty good.

Ronny’s creations in the kitchen are works of art and out-of-this-world delicious every single time! His recipes are indeed gourmet, but I also find that they are simple and straightforward, which is why they’ve been staples in my kitchen for years. I have been waiting a long time for this book, and I can’t wait to cook my way through it and share these recipes with my family.

I’ve been a huge fan of Ronny’s blog for many years, and his debut cookbook does not disappoint. The Primal Gourmet Cookbook is packed with delectable and healthy recipes with an international flair, and Ronny’s sardonic wit is sprinkled throughout the prose. Cooking with Ronny puts a big smile on my face!

Ronny’s short rib ragù is our family’s dinner of choice when we are in need of nourishment of body and soul. It certainly would be a part of my last meal. I once threw out leftovers because I forgot them on the counter overnight, and I couldn’t forgive myself for weeks. I became a Primal Gourmet fan because of his delicious food. I am now a Ronny Lvovski fan because I admire his pursuit of his dream to be his best for his family and his audience.

This is the book I am most excited about this year. The Primal Gourmet Cookbook is full of heart and soul, and the recipes are an extraordinary toolkit for everyday cooking—both for beginning cooks as well as lifelong food explorers. Whether you’re eating Whole30 or Paleo or just want to cook delicious everyday food, this is an absolute must-have.

The Primal Gourmet blog has long been a big source of inspiration for me and a real pillar in the cooking community. Ronny has a talent for making scrumptious food that’s also friendly on the waistline (but you wouldn’t even know it), and The Primal Gourmet Cookbook is a reflection of what he does best. I can’t wait to cook from it— the Everything-but-the-Bagel Salad and the Mojo Loco Chicken Wings are at the top of my list! Everyone needs this book in their kitchen. It will be your go-to book for making mouth-watering recipes that will leave you satisfied and fuelled!

Ronny has inspired me for years with his impressive knife skills and, most important, his cooking style—approachable, family-friendly recipes using whole ingredients that are easily accessible to all! The Primal Gourmet Cookbook is a collection of healthy, delicious recipes and stories that will motivate you to become the confident home cook you want to be, and it deserves a permanent home on every bookshelf.
