Publisher Comments:

Top New York chef and restaurateur Matthew Kenney and his partner, Sarma Melngailis, had been thinking of opening a Moroccan restaurant. But one night they were invited to a raw food restaurant — and it changed their lives. They instead opened Pure Food and Wine, a restaurant devoted to creative, tasty raw food, and it has been drawing rave reviews. Dishes such as Zucchini and Green Zebra Tomato Lasagne, Golden Squash Pasta with Black Summer Truffles, and Dark Chocolate Ganache Tart with Vanilla Cream have given raw food a sexy new appeal.

The decision to go raw was shocking at first for these two ex-carnivorous chefs, but they soon found that preparing and eating raw food made them and their guests feel their physical best. Melngailis noticed a difference almost immediately — "Light, clean, natural, and alive foods make you feel light, clean, and more alive. And sexy." This new way of life has changed their outlook on eating and cooking and connects them to the world around them. As Kenney says, "Raw foods and the lifestyle associated with it are so compelling and complex that we will be forever learning and growing. Already it seems that we have discovered some of the magic that life offers."

In this lushly photographed book, Kenney and Melngailis share some of that magic — and show that preparing and eating raw does not mean bland, unsatisfying, or impossibly time-consuming meals. Using dehydrating, Vita-Mix blending, a nuanced understanding of spices, and unprecedented creativity, they explore a whole new outlook on raw food that transfers beautifully and easily from their kitchen to yours — no matter what your present diet. And you'll immediately begin to reap the benefits of healthful, delicious, life-giving raw food.

Synopsis:

In this lushly illustrated book, Kenney and Melngailis will show readers that raw food does not mean bland, unsatisfying, or impossibly time-consuming meals. Using dehydrating, Vita-Mix blending, a nuanced understanding of spices, and unprecedented creativity, this book will explore a whole new outlook on raw food that transfers beautifully and easily from their kitchen to yours--no matter what your normal diet. A more practical version of Raw, with the sexier feeling of Marco Pierre White's White Heat, Raw Food/Real World is destined to become a top-shelf classic for lovers of colorful, inventive, hip, and healthy food.

If I were rating this just on recipes, I'd give it a 5. The dishes in this book are beautiful, inspired and tasty, no doubt about it. While some are fairly complicated, many are a snap. The coconut macaroons are divine, and their idea to use sliced young coconut meat to replace noodles is a keeper. I also appreciated that they are not "hard core" raw.

On the other hand, the "non-recipe" portions of the book are a little too "look at us, aren't we beautiful?" for my taste. The glossy photo on the cover is a clue to the sorts of photos and minute autobiographical detail you'll find inside. But once I tried the food, I felt much more forgiving; in fact, I applaud the generosity of anyone willing to share the amount of labor that went into the development of these recipes. And, hey, you can't deny--they DO look good.
