    Hayley and Bill, who brought us Make It Paleo, have organized their second book around the theme of feasts. Ones I particularly appreciated (because I no longer have to come up with my own ideas) were a Springtime Tea Party, Spooky Supper (Halloween), Thanksgiving Feast and the various dinner party menus. The book recognizes that food isn't just about fuel but also about friendship and bonding. This way you get both. And it's a beautiful book, well photographed, inspiring!

    While I don't want to buy this for my personal collection, per se, I'm afraid I might be checking this out from the library quite often for inspiration. I love the layout and the gathering themes (my fave is the hunter-gatherer one) and I enjoy that it's paleo-focused. And the photography is beautiful. I'm eager to make my my own entertaining menus with my own favorite recipes! Why am I not rushing out to buy this, again?

    Gather has a gorgeous layout and well-written text. While not all of the recipes I would make, there are still plenty that I’d like to, including many of the salads, sides and desserts. It’s full of ideas for entertaining, and I’m giving it five stars because it is likely that I will pick up this book again for inspiration.

    The recipes seem fun but most recipes aren't actually paleo. Bummer. Lots of dairy and sesame oil. If it wasn't labeled as paleo I'd give it 4 stars.

    Beautiful book that immediately went on my personal wishlist. I love that the recipes are grouped into themed menus. The Take Out-Fake Out idea is something I'm going to have to try for sure! I made the cinnamon maple hotcakes as a test recipe and found they were a bit dry (tasted too eggy) but super easy to make. I didn't know what maple sugar was because the book didn't offer an explanation so I used maple syrup instead. I think this is a weird enough ingredient that it should have had an expl Beautiful book that immediately went on my personal wishlist. I love that the recipes are grouped into themed menus.

I didn't know what maple sugar was because the book didn't offer an explanation so I used maple syrup instead. I think this is a weird enough ingredient that it should have had an explanation or substitution. I was also a little frustrated with the recipes that call for gluten-free flour blend because I only buy paleo flours and need a recipe to make a flour blend from these that I can use. Most of the ingredients are very simple, easy to obtain, and relatively inexpensive. The recipes all look simple as well except for a few like the checkerboard cake which require additional equipment, but this is clearly indicated. Recipes I want to try: steamed spring rolls with sesame dipping sauce, shrimp fried cauliflower rice, general tso's chicken, almond cookies, sweet potato hash with rosemary, orange scones and cranberry scones, avocado cream eggs, grapefruit salad, sweet potato souffle, apple pie with lattice crust, blackberry cobbler, pumpkin torte, candied yams, Yorkshire puddings

    Beautiful book, based around seasonal themed meals. I'm one of those weird people who buys specialty books even when I'm not following the particular style of eating... So I have gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan books even though I am. Devoted omnivore. I suspect I would like this book even more if I was actually following a paleo diet but as I'm not I won't be bothering with making pizza crusts out of almond flour or Spanish rice out of grated cauliflower, nor am I likely to search out duck f Beautiful book, based around seasonal themed meals.

That's where actual paleo devotees have one up on me. If that's your kind of cooking, this book is definitely for you. Meanwhile, there are plenty of recipes that a paleo dabbler can and will enjoy.

    Beautiful photography. really that is what drew me to the book. The recipes can be a bit involved and I think I would pull them out for a special occasion or when I feel like I have more time. Simple would not be my description. However, I like how they lay out what you should be doing days prior and I believe on their website you can print out the menu to set on your own table! Simple beautiful... especially for design challenged people like myself!

    Though there are many recipes that contain sugar/sweetener and dairy, thus not strict Paleo, this is a wonderful special occasion hosting cookbook. No detail is left to chance. And the recipes I've tried are outstanding! Most memorable: Green Bean Salad with Artichoke Hearts and Olives Bacon Wrapped Shrimp Balsamic Grilled Vegetables I've been meaning to make the General Tso's Chicken, several of my friends have referred to it in blush-worthy language!

    The beginning of the onslaught of cookbooks I read this summer/year for #migrainetrial...I was looking for recipes that didn't include about 20 crucial ingredients, or would be easy to work around them. It was a pretty epic list, beyond your basic 8 food allergies. I also had friends who went paleo for the summer, so I was cooking for myself and weekly paleo as well!

    Beautiful book. I wish I knew they cooked Exclusively with duck/saturated fats. I'm one of the few who has to watch their intake. I wonder if make it paleo is the same? I wish more authors provided subs mods for ingredients. Like ur choice of fat, etc. beautiful book. Excited about Chinese section, hope or turns ok with olive avocado or little coconut oil Beautiful book. I wish I knew they cooked Exclusively with duck/saturated fats.

    Many fantastic ideas on planning a gathering. I also understand that this book is for those special occasions, where you will probably stray a bit from your way of eating, and realistically this is the better way to do it. Excellent food. But, there is a lot of dairy listed for this being a paleo cookbook.

    This is a wonderful addition to my Paleo cookbook collection. I highly recommend if you love to entertain or feel challenged about what to pull together for special occasion meals. So far, everything I've made has been delicious. The photography alone is inspiring enough to start planning my next get-together. This is a wonderful addition to my Paleo cookbook collection.

    Just great. Check this one out even if you aren't looking for something paleo. Wonderful pictures and presented like a gorgeous coffee table book that's idea if you cook for guests and breaks down everything from shopping to prep times until everything is served. Just great.

    I read cookbooks like they are novels! This is one of the most thoughtful, well put together, cookbooks for entertaining I have ever had my hands on! Bravo once again Bill & Hayley! You are paving the way to Paleo cooking for us newbies :-)

    Great presentation and I liked the format of dividing the book by different meals (further broken down into courses and dishes). A lot of the recipes were too complex for me personally, but for those experienced cooks who want to host a paleo dinner party this book is perfect!

    This a book that I won't personally put to use because I hate to cook regular food (read: not desserts), but it is fun to look through, and quite a gorgeous book overall. If anyone else wants to invite me over to test out the recipes that they've taken the time to try, then I'm all for it!

    Beautiful photography! You can truly tell Bill and Hayley put much effort into this cookbook, with each chapter broken into different themes from spring to winter. Loved the ideas for Halloween, Christmas as well as a tea party! Can't wait to try out all the recipes!! Beautiful photography!

    I liked this book so much I bought a copy to add to my cookbook collection. I definitely think I'll use it for pot luck recipes, holidays and other special events so I can bring something everyone will enjoy, but which allows me to stay paleo.
