Product Description

Review

Praise for New York City’s Premier Raw Restaurant, Pure Food and Wine“Whether you’re into raw food or not, Sarma’s restaurant is really great, and her One Lucky Duck Juice and Takeaway around the corner is my afternoon go-to spot when I’m in NYC. I always feel at home there!” (Owen Wilson)

“My favorites are the Black Trumpet Mushroom Napoleon and the Classic Sundae!” (Gisele Bündchen)

“‘Raw’ and ‘vegetarian’ are not adjectives usually associated with haute cuisine, but at Pure Food and Wine, as if by magic, such ingredients are turned into exquisite and exotically delicious offerings.” (Forbes)

“At once sophisticated and rigorously raw, [Melngailis’ recipes] range from quick and easy milks, juices and items from Pure Food and Wine’s “family meal”…to intriguing dishes off the restaurant menu… And nonpreachy primers on ingredients and techniques used in raw preparations make the book accessible…for a wider audience…” (Publishers Weekly)

About the Author

Sarma Melngailis is the cocreator and owner of Pure Food and Wine and founder of the online boutiques One Lucky Duck and Shiny Happy Pets, through which she is expanding her reach with all things raw and organic. The coauthor (with Matthew Kenney) of Raw Food/Real World, she lives in New York City with her two cats.

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.

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.

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
