I grew up drinking bone broth as part of my Asian heritage. Usually I was told that what I was drinking was healing and good for me, but I never gave it much thought. I didn’t realize that it has recently become more of a “thing” and embraced by seemingly everyone else. But, after reading Brodo: A Bone Broth Cookbook by Marco Canora, I can see why more and more people are incorporating bone broth into their diet.
In the book, Marco talks about his personal health journey and what led him to the healing benefits of bone broth. I appreciated the actual descriptions on how beneficial drinking bone broth can be from fighting colds and infections to building a healthy gut.
I have the hardcover version of the book, and I was surprised by its small size, which runs a little larger than a trade paperback. The book is divided into two sections, with the first called The Power of Bone Broth and covers the story of Brodo to making broth at home. The second half of the book are the recipes and have recipes for broths, add-ins, Brodo bowls, and risottos.
The recipes are simple to make and I think the hardest part will be finding a source to buy all the bones. I’m lucky to live in a city with many Asian supermarkets to get bones from. I’m looking forward to incorporating bone broth into my diet more consistently now that I have better awareness of its health benefits.
