    Sarma Melngailis is a head chef and co-owner of Pure Food and Wine.

    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.

    • Great resource and recipes

      If you are looking for good information and some very accessible recipes this book hits the mark. It's a very solid resource that gets you familiar with a number of ingredients that you will want to use when enhancing a raw menu for your meals. The Shakes - Cheeses and Granola are worth the price of the book by themselves. Also there are a number of informative and entertaining musings about food and food choices that will reinforce you decisions to eat Raw meals.There are advanced recipes that are restaurant caliber- yet they are not intimidating. A great price and a great value in my opinion.

    • An excellent choice!

      I just received this book today and I've already spent 2 hours reading it and planning menus. Not only does this book have some great recipes, but it has so much information on raw eating and the authors actually tell their story of why they went raw and share its ife changing benefits. I would definitely reccomend this book. There are lots of great resources inside.
