Book Description

May 24 2011
Raw food is for everyone, say the authors of one of Denmark’s best-selling cookbooks, and they make a compelling case for that claim. Equally at home on the coffee table or in the kitchen, The Art of Raw Food features gorgeous four-color photography and delicious yet simple raw food recipes as well as a background on the benefits of a raw food diet. Jens Casupei and Vibeke Kaupert, raw food enthusiasts with a flair for style as well as a passion for healthy living, introduce readers to the good (raw food), the bad (processed food), and the ugly (how processed food can make you feel). Sixty pages of information on health and diet are followed by 260 pages of mouth-watering recipes.

In 140 recipes, the authors cover breakfast (Delicious Buckwheat Porridge); shakes and smoothies (Orange and Blackcurrant Shake); soups (Light and Fluffy Pepper Bisque); main dishes (Chili Sin Carne); soups, dips, and patés (Olive Tapenade); desserts (Pineapple Carpaccio with Berry Coulis); snacks (Quetzalcoatl Chocolate); and sauces and dressings (Sunflower and Beetroot Sauce). A terrific introduction to the world of raw foods for any newcomer, Raw Food offers plenty of diverse and unique recipes for every occasion.

The Art of Raw Food delivers a practical guide to understanding a raw food diet as well as to preparing uncooked, plant-based cuisine. Jens and Vibeke artistically deliver a menu that is rich in cancer-fighting and heart-healthy fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, seaweeds, sprouts, herbs, and even some superfoods! . . . . The Art of Raw Food is definitely for the entire family to enjoy. . . . Extraordinary recipes and beautiful photos!”
—David Wolfe, author of The Sunfood Diet Success System, Eating for Beauty, Superfoods, Naked Chocolate, and Amazing Grace

"With this full-color, photograph-filled cookbook, raw food devotees and newcomers alike can enjoy delicious and healthy raw recipes that are rich in cancer-fighting and heart-healthy ingredients. The book covers the importance of enzymes in metabolism, the effects of processed foods, and the environmental benefits of going raw."
Taste for Life magazine

This book is a great hardcover, with amazing pictures and in a simple, easy to use, format… While there are some great simple recipes, like asparagus with a raw hummus or olive tapenade, there are also some more advanced dishes like a Chili sin Carne (kind of like a raw jambalaya).”
—Ridgefield Wellness

“I read cookbooks like novels and absolutely devoured The Art of Raw Food.  The information provided within the book is so eloquent and the photography is so simple and striking. … It is clear that the recipes in the book are meant to enrich, satisfy, and energize our bodies naturally. … This un-cookbook has definitely earned a permanent spot on my bookshelf.”
—Veggie Grettie

5.0 out of 5 stars GLAD I BOUGHT IT! May 25 2011
By L. Bryant - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I just received this book today and also received my order of subscription organic vegetables so I had to try one of the recipes. I made the recipe on pg. 142, the Pasta with Bechamel Sauce. I didn't have spinach so I used butter leaf lettuce. The Bechamel sauce on pg. 279 called for cashews but I used my Pistachio's instead. Neither did I have Avocado oil so I used organic Olive oil. I have never seen a recipe call for nutmeg along with salt (Himalayan of course) and black pepper in a raw nut sauce to go over a salad but is was good and different! It really complimented the sweet potatoe and peas. This salad had a very unique flavor and I (and my mother) really enjoyed it! I have yet to try any others but the recipes are very simple and basic. Some of which I have dreamed up on my own and used over the years considering how I have been a raw food vegetarian since 1980. But many of the recipes I have never made nor thought of before. I normally watch about combinding proteins, oil and starches together but once in awhile give in to a change for variety. Overall I would say the book is good and I am glad I purchased it because the recipes along with ingredients look really good. Can't wait to try the Sunflower Pate, Lasagna, Sushi, Pad Thai,the Cashew-Stracciatella Ice Cream w/choco nibs and sauce, the Carrot Cake, Vanilla Ice Cream, Mazarin Cake, Chocolate Mousse (w/avocado), Confectionary Rolls, Coconut Puffs, Sinful Chocolate Pie(yes it is giving me a sweet tooth tonight. Each recipe has a color picture which is not the norm. There is something about this book that makes you want to try each and every recipe which I have not experience before with any others. They look easy, good and pretty. If you are a raw foodist, then more than likely you will have pretty much all the ingredients setting on your shelves or in your fridge. (I am really excited about this book because it isn't one of those where you will have to go to the store to purchase additional ingredients that you wouldn't normally have on hand (or couldn't substitute one with) or even run all over town to find that 1 ingredient that makes the recipe work.) It has a good variety of recipes all of which I can see that the ingredients in the recipes will compliment one another making the recipe a success.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT raw foods cookbook for anyone, experienced or not! Feb. 23 2012
By vgchef - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Before buying any book, I read the reviews then get it from my library to make sure it's something I can really benefit from. For anyone looking for a raw foods cookbook whose recipes are gourmet, healthy & fresh without the use of exotic, expensive, hard-to-find ingredients, THE ART OF RAW FOOD is the best of the few raw foods cookbooks I've seen that accomplish this. The layout is well organized, it provides easy reading that actually engages the reader, & beautiful photography accompanies every recipe. But what impressed me most is that not one of these very imaginative recipes requires a dehydrator, & as such eliminates having to wait hours or days for foods to dehydrate before you can eat the meal. Everything is fresh & alive & can be eaten as soon as it is prepared. As another reviewer commented, this is the "essence of raw foods". Of course, any of these recipes could be heated in a dehydrator if preferred (or even in a carefully-watched low oven), but it isn't necessary, making this book an excellent choice for beginners who have no special equipment (& may not wish yet to spend the money), as well as intermediate & advanced raw foods enthusiasts. The introductory chapters are informative & to the point without being overbearing, & all recipes' instructions are easy to follow. No hard-to-find expensive or exotic ingredients are called for (unless you consider avocado oil exotic, but it can always be substituted with cold-pressed olive oil). There is a lot of value for Amazon's price of $26.40 when you consider the content of this book & that it's hardbound, replete with color photography, & uses high quality paper. Finding this book was like striking gold for me, & I'm glad I was able to preview it from my library first - I read it from cover to cover in one day! I intend now to buy it. THE ART OF RAW FOOD will be a valuable & frequently-used addition to my raw foods cookbook collection, & certainly a refreshing "back to basics" alternative from other raw foods cookbooks, although there's nothing "basic" about the quality of its recipes!

5.0 out of 5 stars The essence of raw food Dec 29 2011
By Deb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Being a raw foods enthusiast, I've enjoyed quite a healthy serving of raw foods (un)cook books. But, this one, I absolutely devoured!

The book starts off with a wonderful overview of raw food. For those who are new to raw foodism, it's a great introduction, and for those who are already raw foodists, it's a great reminder why.

And, oh, the recipes that follow are simply brilliant! They capture the essence of raw food: each recipe features a minimal amount of simple ingredients and steps--there is not one recipe that requires obscure superfoods or a dehydrator--and results in a maximally flavorful creation. Each time I make one of the recipes, I am astounded by the combination of easy preparation and deep deliciousness. This truly is the art of raw foods!

Speaking of art, the photography is as satisfying as the food. Each recipe is accompanied by a mouth-watering photograph which makes trying the recipe even more irresistible. As I page through the book and gawk at these pictures, I get more and more excited to create each recipe.

If I were asked to recommend one raw food recipe book to someone, this one would be it.
