Welcome to Bite This Book! Each month, I feature a cookbook of my choosing, host a Q & A with the author, and then give you a chance to win a copy or two. It’s Bite This Book, good reads on Simple Bites.
If I wasn’t particularly enthusiastic for a weekend Cinco de Mayo celebration, I am now! I’m holding Gaby Dalkin’s beautiful new cookbook, Absolutely Avocados, and each recipe is a nudge to invite some friends over and get cooking.
Gaby’s love of fresh ingredients and California cooking style comes through loud and clear with dishes like her Sweet Potato and Avocado Burgers, and the Cumin-Dusted Mahi-Mahi Tacos. I love that many recipes are healthier versions than their counterparts such as the Avocado Lobster Roll and the – yep, that’s right – Avocado Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Oh, and did I mention the entire chapter dedicated to guacamole? I’m working my way through that one first.
Read on for a super fun interview with Gaby and a chance to win a copy of Absolutely Avocados.
