Japchae from The Ancestral Table

This year at a conference, I had the pleasure of running into Russ Crandall of The Domestic Man in the cooking demonstration area.  We've met a few times and he was super nice as always.  He asked if I had a copy of his book, The Ancestral Table, yet and I did not.  He then says that he thought I was on the list to get one from his publisher.  A couple of Whoa! moments here: 1.  Russ Crandall actually remembers who I am.  2.  I was thought of to be on a list.  3.  I'm getting a new cookbook to try.  Whoa- indeed!  Well, within a few days, I found a lovely copy in my mailbox.  Thanks, Russ!

Those of you who have been readers of the blog know that Russ and I approach a paleo lifestyle a bit differently and well that's just fine.  Just as I can take a non-paleo recipe and make it fit my needs, which are more on the Whole30 side of the paleo lifestyle spectrum, I can make Russ's recipes work for me and they, hopefully, will be tasty.
