Blog Tour: Review of The Blue Zones Kitchen by Dan Buettner

Author: Dan Buettner
Publisher: National Geographic
Publication Date: December 2019

Best-selling author Dan Buettner debuts his first cookbook, filled with 100 longevity recipes inspired by the Blue Zones locations around the world, where people live the longest.
Building on decades of research, longevity expert Dan Buettner has gathered 100 recipes inspired by the Blue Zones, home to the healthiest and happiest communities in the world. Each dish–for example, Sardinian Herbed Lentil Minestrone; Costa Rican Hearts of Palm Ceviche; Cornmeal Waffles from Loma Linda, California; and Okinawan Sweet Potatoes–uses ingredients and cooking methods proven to increase longevity, wellness, and mental health. Complemented by mouthwatering photography, the recipes also include lifestyle tips (including the best times to eat dinner and proper portion sizes), all gleaned from countries as far away as Japan and as near as Blue Zones project cities in Texas. Innovative, easy to follow, and delicious, these healthy living recipes make the Blue Zones lifestyle even more attainable, thereby improving your health, extending your life, and filling your kitchen with happiness.

The Blues Zones Kitchen is a new cookbook put out by National Geographic.  It's kind of a hybrid of recipes and travel guide.  The sections of book deal with a different part of the world and recipes commonly found there.  I am not the cook in the family, so after flipping through it, I gave it to my husband to look through. He is eager to try out a few of the recipes.  One thing I did like was the vibrant photos included in the book.  From National Geographic, I always know I will get wonderful photos to look at.  I think this is a great book to add to any cookbook collection.
