About this item


Book Synopsis

Best-selling Blue Zones Kitchen author Dan Buettner spent years uncovering the Blue Zones--the five places around the world where people consistently live to or past, 100--and sharing lifestyle tips and recipes gleaned from these places. Now, creating your own Blue Zone at home is easier than ever, thanks to plant-forward recipes in this inspiring book--all developed right in our own backyard.

In Blue Zones American Kitchen, Buettner uncovers the traditional roots of plant-forward cuisine in the United States. Following the acumen of heritage cooks who have passed their recipes from generation to generation, Buettner uncovers the regions and cultures that have shaped America's healthiest food landscapes, from Hmong elders living in Minnesota to Quakers in New England. Along the way, he illuminates both traditional and revolutionary ideas in vegetarian food with recipes from chefs like James Beard Award-winner James Wayman, "the Gullah chef" Bill Green, and "the Cod Chef" Dave Smoke-McCluskey.

With wisdom from more than 50 food experts, chefs, and cooks around the country, Buettner's road trip across America sheds light on some of its most under-recognized plant-forward communities as Buettner shares the ingredients, recipes, and lifestyle tips that will make living to 100 both delicious and easy. And the proof is in the pudding: 49 Blue Zones Project Cities have demonstrated that eating the Blue Zones way can alleviate obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and more.

Filled with 100 tasty recipes, from Pennsylvania Dutch apple dumplings to Southern Hoppin' John, Blue Zones American Kitchen will change your diet--and your life.

Not a Beginner Level Cookbook

3 out of 5 stars

I like Dan, have heard him speak a number of times, and find his Blue Zone project to be incredibly inspirational. He's written a number of books, is a Nat Geo Fellow, and being from Minnesota doesn't hurt either. That said, this cookbook is best for a cook who is very into the Blue Zone lifestyle as opposed to someone who generally cooks "Weeknight/30 Min" type meals. Like another reviewer stated, it's more of a coffee table book due to the pretty pictures and aspirational nature of this lifestyle. While Dan and the chefs he's collaborated with have done a very nice job crafting recipes; the techniques used and precision required to nuiance each ingredient aren't the best for a less adventurous home cook. However, if you have the time and interest in making your own spice blends and are able to track down some unique ingredients not carried at your suburban, maintream grocery stores, than this might be the book for you!

Got this for Christmas and it is a beautiful addition to my collection to display on my counter. The photography is so pretty and the recipes are very unique. May be out of my comfort zone but very interesting read if you are into learning about different cultures and how they cook.

I’m in love. This is a beautiful, enlightening, informative book. The recipes look amazing, healthy and, best of all, local kinds of recipes. Ingredients that are native to the Americas and prepared in authentic, healthy ways. I love it so much.
