The Whole Coconut Cookbook | Book Review

The Whole Coconut Cookbook by Nathalie Fraise
The Whole Coconut cookbook definitely has so much about coconuts crammed into one small book! Beyond just having recipes, I learned a lot about coconuts and the different parts and uses of it. The very first part of the cookbook was my favorite, as Frasie explained how to process the different parts of the coconut yourself instead of buying it all.

I enjoyed reading through the cookbook--it seemed very easy to follow and was full of useful tips. The photographs were also lovely.

As I suspected for a healthier cookbook, there were many ingredients that I didn't have on hand, or I would have tried a recipe. Though we have things like chia seeds and chickpeas, we do not have agar agar, nori, kombu, etc. That might be something helpful for a prospective buyer to know.

Overall, the recipes in this book were not extremely "everyday" (such as Spicy Coconut Ceviche and Coconut, Ginger, and Cilantro Mussels) but many of them did look delicious and fun to try!

*I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.*
