(The) Raw Gourmet

 

by Nomi Shannon, Brian Clement (Foreword)
 
Description
Whether you'd simply like to add more fruit and vegetables to your meals, or want to change your lifestyle in a more dramatic way, The Raw Gourmet is the complete guide to one of the world's fastest growing nutrition and health movements-the living-foods diet.

In the first book of its kind, Nomi Shannon opens a door onto a refreshing new world of food preparation...Learn how fresh, non-cooked fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and grains can boost your vitality while lighting up your palate.

Try exotic dishes like chili rellenos, spinach mousse, and vegetable nori roll-ups. Or, on a more familiar note, serve up a living foods version of old favorites like pizza, tomato soup or apple pie. Whatever you choose, this book brings a rich variety of flavors and textures to your table and offers everything your body needs to stay healthy and vigorous.

Reviews
     This is one of the most beautiful recipe books I've ever seen; it doubles as a nice coffee table book! I've always loved cookbooks that show you what the finished recipes are supposed to look like, especially when I'm new to a certain style of cooking (or in this case not cooking). Her book is over-the-top wonderful with lovely photos on every page.

     Another thing that makes this book so different from other raw "cookbooks" is that Nomi shows you to find the time to prepare raw meals, sprout, etc. Extras include "Ten Raw Food Kitchen Essentials," a sprouting chart, information about food combining, a 3-week menu plan, and so much more!

     The recipes are as varied and wonderful as any cooked food you've ever eaten, from breakfast grains to juices and salads to pies, cookies, and ice cream! Check out the table of contents to see the incredibly long list of different kinds of recipes she has included in this fabulous book. You won't believe how much you can do with raw foods!

     I also liked that she includes a notation that shows you which recipes are "properly combined" for those new to food combining. If I had to choose only one of my raw foods recipe books to keep, it would be this one.
