Book Description

June 22 2009

Picking up where the bestselling <em>Raw Food/Real World</em> left off, Sarma Melngailis invites us inside her glamorous restaurant, Pure Food and Wine, with dozens more recipes for fresh and vibrant juices, shakes, soups, simple dishes, main courses, desserts, and cocktails.

  • Whip up an antioxidant-rich Goji Tropic Shake or a sweet, cleansing Cilantro-Pineapple Shake for delicious nutrition on the go
  • Cool down with a Cucumber-Mint Gazpacho Soup and an Heirloom Tomato, Fennel, and Avocado Pressed Salad with Caper Dressing, Pistachio, and Mint
  • Find out what makes the Chanterelle and Kalamata Olive Ravioli the restaurant's most beloved entrée
  • Celebrate with a raw Thanksgiving dinner, complete with "dark meat" portobello, "white meat" large oyster mushrooms, stuffing, mashed celeriac, cranberries, and brussels sprouts
  • Satisfy your sweet tooth with a Classic Sundae and Caramel Bars

No juicer? No dehydrator? No problem! Sarma shows that raw food preparation doesn't have to be daunting, and she helps you work your way from the fastest, simplest, freshest recipes to immensely satisfying main dishes that you'll have a hard time believing are raw. A definitive list of ingredients, tools, techniques, and sources make raw food a snap, while information-packed sidebars introduce the world's most powerful super­foods, from kombucha tea to chia seeds. And Sarma is refreshingly honest and real as she describes her personal breakthroughs—and struggles—<em>living</em> on raw foods.

Whether you're snacking on the run, having a quiet dinner at home, or throwing a festive cocktail party, eating raw food makes you feel alive. Filled with sensuous, sexy, and energizing food, this book is sure to enrich your life, whether you're a carnivorous epicure or a raw-foods junkie.

I have made a handful of recipes from this book and all have been fantastic and easy. I like it better than Raw Food Real World as there are more simpler recipes, and I just seem to be interested in more of the ones in this book. (that said, RFRW has many indispensable nut milk and smoothie recipes that I go back to again and again). And of course, similar to RFRW, the photographs are fabulous. I really like photos in my recipe books!

This isn't a bad book for raw food beginners, as some of the recipes are easy, though it is certainly not a book intended to provide an "overview" on raw food - there are other books for that. This is recipe focused.

I have only a couple of minor criticisms. Young thai coconuts factor in a lot of the recipes here, and the method to open them described in this book (and in RFRW) is nearly impossible unless you are strong and have a proper cleaver and are well skilled with a knife. There are much easier and safer methods out there, so do a little research. And they do get easier with practice.

Also, she makes reference to using "half sheet pans" inside the "excalibur dehydrator" on page 27. However, the excalibur dehydrator she describes is 14" by 14", and half sheet pans are actually 18" long! They must have some sort of commercial sized dehydrators they use at their restaurant. So you will need to divide the batter used in some of the recipes into two pans to fit them in the home model of the excalibur. Unless you want to spend $6k on the professional model.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book and Resource July 24 2013

Fantastic Resource and Guide to raw food. It really gives you quite a reference of what you will need in your pantry/fridge to make it work and still eat with style. If I had one critique is I was hoping for more pictures and it could be far less wordy

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best cookbooks out there Oct. 10 2012
By sylvie
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I own a lot of raw food cookbooks and both of Sarma's books are 5-star books. They are informative, beautifully illustrated, encouraging and great for any level of experience with raw food. The recipes are absolutely amazing! If you are new to raw foods, the first 30 pages will teach you almost everything you need to know about why going 10%, 50%, or even 100% raw is a great choice and how to do it. The recipes range from basic and delicious smoothies to more elaborate multi-step dishes that show that raw vegan food can be as gourmet as any food out there. Hands down my favourite books.
