Default After backlash on kids cookbook, chef shares sneak peek of latest low-carb title


Recipe for success? Chef Pete 'Paleo' Evans shares sneak peek of latest low-carb title after receiving backlash on controversial kids cookbook

Pete Evans found himself at the centre of controversy in 2015, having to defend a cookbook recipe of a baby formula that a professor warned had the potential to kill a child.

The recipe which appears in 'Bubba Yum Yum: The Paleo Way for new mums, babies and toddlers' is a do-it-yourself baby formula made from liver and bone broth - one of Pete's signature Paleo creations.

Two years on from the furor, the 43-year-old celebrity chef debut his latest cookbook on Instagram on Thursday, a focus this time placed on low carb recipes with healthy fats, also referred to as a Ketogenic diet.

Sharing the cover of his latest release titled 'Low Carb, Healthy Fat', Pete captioned the post: 'Pretty pumped on our latest book. We have been working on this for the last year and it is one of the best so far.

The release comes two years after Pete found himself having to defend a controversial recipe in children's cookbook, in 'Bubba Yum Yum: The Paleo Way for new mums, babies and toddlers'.

Pete's recipe of a baby formula made from liver and bone broth, came under fire with it being branded as dangerous.

The broth reportedly contains ten times the recommended daily intake of Vitamin A for infants, but lacks other basic nutrients needed for sustenance.

At the time, Professor Heather Yeatman, president of the Public Health Association of Australia, said that while adults have the choice to follow the Paleo diet, parents are responsible for the diet of their children and that it would be unfair for parents to force 'unproven' beliefs on them.

'That's the really troubling thing: the infant is totally at the whim of their parents when it comes to feeding. If the wrong decision is made, they may be seriously affected,' she said.

Further concerns were raised about the inclusion of runny eggs and added salt in the recipes, which contradicts national health guidelines.

The controversy surrounding it pushed back the book's publication date and in an interview on Channel Seven's Sunday Night program, Pete spoke about the drama.

'There's no recorded case of harm from that one recipe. We even halved the amount of liver that was in the original recipe,' he claimed on the program.

This is not the first time Pete has found himself at the centre of controversy.

He found himself having to defend his thoughts on vegan women struggling to reproduce, labelling chemical-based sunscreens as 'poisonous' and ditching store-bought toothpaste in favour of a homemade remedy.
