Raw Food/Real World

by Matthew Kenney, Sarma Melngailis

HarperCollins | September 28, 2010 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Raw Food/Real World is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 6.

Top New York chef and restaurateur Matthew Kenney and his partner, Sarma Melngailis, had been thinking of opening a Moroccan restaurant. But one night they were invited to a raw food restaurant -- and it changed their lives. They instead opened Pure Food and Wine, a restaurant devoted to creative, tasty raw food, and it has been drawing rave reviews. Dishes such as Zucchini and Green Zebra Tomato Lasagne, Golden Squash Pasta with Black Summer Truffles, and Dark Chocolate Ganache Tart with Vanilla Cream have given raw food a sexy new appeal.

The decision to go raw was shocking at first for these two ex-carnivorous chefs, but they soon found that preparing and eating raw food made them and their guests feel their physical best. Melngailis noticed a difference almost immediately -- "Light, clean, natural, and alive foods make you feel light, clean, and more alive. And sexy." This new way of life has changed their outlook on eating and cooking and connects them to the world around them. As Kenney says, "Raw foods and the lifestyle associated with it are so compelling and complex that we will be forever learning and growing. Already it seems that we have discovered some of the magic that life offers."

In this lushly photographed book, Kenney and Melngailis share some of that magic -- and show that preparing and eating raw does not mean bland, unsatisfying, or impossibly time-consuming meals. Using dehydrating, Vita-Mix blending, a nuanced understanding of spices, and unprecedented creativity, they explore a whole new outlook on raw food that transfers beautifully and easily from their kitchen to yours -- no matter what your present diet. And you'll immediately begin to reap the benefits of healthful, delicious, life-giving raw food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally the best food prep book I own!! This is the best Raw Food book I've seen and own. It is perfectly laid out and balanced with colours and picture and terrific recipes. I have not been disappointed at the recipes I have tried, and the wisdom behind the true reason to go raw. When some one hears "raw food diet" they immediately think all you eat is salad and carrot sticks. This book is perfect as it provides proven recipes that taste great and look good. While preparing some of these recipes may be a little time intensive, the results are more than worth it. You'll be amazed at just how good raw food can taste. You're taste buds will never be the same. If you can only afford one Raw Food book, this is the one.
