Cook it Raw tells the story of an exciting collection of avant garde chefs who come together to create unique dining experiences that explore and question social, cultural and environmental issues. Held initially in Copenhagen to mark the 2009 climate change summit the first 'Raw' dinner challenged the chefs to examine the issue of sustainability. As the events have developed so too have the issues, themes and general philosophy of the group. Winter and the question of creativity (Collio-Italy), the Wilderness and culinary comradeship (Lapland) and tradition and the artisan (Iskikawa-Japan) have all been explored on the plate by the likes of Rene Redzepi, Albert Adria, Alex Atala, Daniel Patterson, Magnus Nilsson, Inaki Aizparte, Massimo Bottura and Claude Bosi. Normally reserved for a select number of diners this book reveals for the very first time the 'Raw' collective's philosophy and creative endeavours. With contributions from leading food writers and 'Raw' supporters such as Antony Bourdain, Jeffrey Steingarten and Andrea Petrini; plus, over 400 behind-the-scenes images of the events and an inspiring collection of the chefs' own 'Raw' recipes, notes and anecdotes - Cook it Raw is an exclusive window into the world's most progressive culinary collective.

Editorial Reviews

"Using stunning photography and smart design, Cook It Raw documents the retreat of the same name during which rockstar chefs like David Chang and Rene Redzepi gather to eat, drink, cook and exchange ideas." - Bon Appetit"The book recounts four Cook It Raw gatherings -- in Denmark, Japan, Italy and Finland -- in lush photography, email exchanges, recipe descriptions and entertaining essays by Jeffrey Steingarten, Anthony Bourdain and others." - The Wall Street Journal". . .teeming with first-person narrative and never-released images, offering glimpses into the chefs' experimentation with different traditional and regional techniques and wild ingredients. The ultra informative tome is a dynamic resource for those well-acquainted with the conference, and a stellar introduction for the unfamiliar." - Cool"Cook It Raw is the culinary equivalent of a round table of the most preeminent philosophers. Both cerebral and physical, the book makes the chefs' energy and enthusiasm palpable. . ." -"This book will change the way you relate to food one dish at a time." - The Huffington Post"Cook It Raw. . .is more of a culinary scrapbook or a catalog than a cookbook. . .it's a high quality documentation of an event few will ever actually be able to attend." -
