Michelle Tam of Nom Nom Paleo Live at McGregor Square

Tattered Cover is pleased to welcome Michelle Tam to our McGregor Square location on February 2nd at 6pm. Michelle will be discussing her new Nom Nom Paleo book, Let's Go: Simple Feasts and Healthy Eats! This is a free event without registration. 

About the Book:

The New York Times bestselling creators of Nom Nom Paleo are back with a new collection of internationally-inspired, umami-packed dishes—including keto-friendly, Whole30, and plant-based recipes! With step-by-step photos, fun cartoons, and a dash of snarky humor, Let’s Go! will have you running into the kitchen and ready to cook!

Michelle Tam and Henry Fong know that the healthiest meal is the one you make yourself, so they’re all about getting you off your butts and into the kitchen. Whether you’re cooking for yourself, whipping up a family dinner, or preparing a special-occasion feast, Nom Nom Paleo: Let’s Go! will inspire you with deliciously nourishing meals.
Weeknight suppers should be healthy and flavor-packed but also fast and simple. Weekends and celebrations, on the other hand, are the perfect excuse to craft elevated (but easy!) crowd-pleasers. This cookbook offers crazy-delicious recipes for all occasions, and every single one is free of grains, gluten, dairy, and refined sugar. Better yet? No one in your family will notice what’s missing!
As always, Nom Nom Paleo’s recipes reflect the diverse cuisines Michelle grew up with and culinary ideas from her travels. Often Asian-inspired, Michelle’s unfussy recipes maximize flavor, optimize whole foods, and are presented with photos of each step so they’re absolutely foolproof—even for novice cooks! New recipes include:

  • Cantonese Roast Duck
  • Nom Nom Chili Crisp
  • Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole
  • Chicken Karaage
  • Instant Pot Balsamic Beef Stew
  • Paleo-Friendly Cream Puffs.
