You know, I really want to like this book but I haven't made a single recipe in it. I think Amber is a great writer. She's obviously very passionate about raw food and I think she's tried really hard to create recipes that are within reach of amateur cooks who want to venture into raw territory. She's also provided options for many of the recipes that include cooking so if you don't have a food dehydrator, you can still make the recipe. The book itself is nice with great paper, great photos, and Amber's commentary on all the recipes.
I guess I felt many of the recipes were still a bit 'out there'. I don't really have time for, or care to strain yogurt, for example, and I'm not interested in soaking nuts overnight. I flipped through this a couple of times because I was really excited about adding raw food to my diet but there just wasn't anything in there that grabbed me. Maybe I didn't realize that 'raw' is more work and I had too high expectations. I can't really give this a thumbs up or down. From my research, it does seem like it's the most accessible of the raw cookbooks.
