As a lot of you might know, I’m an everyday contributor to the Paleo Journal Radio podcast, hosted by my good friend Tony Federico (writer of Paleo Grilling). A couple of yr in the past, Tony and I have been discussing future collaborations, and in a match of inspiration, we began tinkering with a brand new challenge — which is making its debut at this time.
Deep Dish combines our collective pursuits — in recipe improvement, historic analysis, and radio broadcasting — to create one thing really distinctive. We determined to make a deep dive into one single meal, researching its complete historical past and recipe-testing it to perfection, then sharing that story. As a substitute of a cookbook with many recipes (the place you truthfully might solely cook dinner just a few of the recipes), we wished to focus the challenge on one scrumptious dinner – no extra, no much less. As soon as we had accomplished the recipe improvement, we acquired collectively to report 4 radio exhibits highlighting the dishes, their historical past, cultural significance, and our expertise with the challenge.
For our first season, we determined to sort out the quintessential All-American Meal. After a whole lot of debate, we settled on meatloaf, accompanied by mashed potatoes & gravy, peas & carrots, and apple pie. We spent a number of months testing new approaches to those beloved dishes, and at last settled on what we take into account the last word preparation for every chew.
All the recipes we developed are gluten-free, with substitutions for dairy-free, Paleo/Primal, and Whole30 preparations included. I’m particularly pleased with our apple pie recipe; since I hardly ever create desserts (I dare you to seek out one on this website!), it was a whole lot of enjoyable to strive my hand at baking. The outcomes, you’ll discover, are fairly spectacular.
Ultimately, Deep Dish: Season One got here collectively as a 68-page eBook, bundled with a four-episode radio present, all centered on one scrumptious expertise. We’ve priced it at $5 USD, cheaper than these horrible meatloaf meals yow will discover at your native diner!
As soon as you buy the bundle, you’ll be despatched a hyperlink to obtain a duplicate of the eBook. As an added bonus, you possibly can preview the audio present prior to buying through our SoundCloud web page.
I hope you people love this challenge as a lot as I do – it was a whole lot of enjoyable to create. Be looking out for future seasons within the coming months and years!
