Raw food chef Judita Wignall wants to show everyone how easy, delicious, and healthful a raw food lifestyle can be. Her first cookbook includes a variety of recipes, from quick smoothies, soups, and salads to more involved dishes that require longer preparation and dehydrating times, such as Berries and Cream Crepes and Coconut-Curry Samosas with Plum Chutney. What sets this book apart is the emphasis on instruction; color photographs demystify important raw food kitchen tools and appliances; techniques for prepping produce and sprouting grains, nuts, and seeds; and the various steps needed to complete some recipes. The book includes a helpful DVD of demonstrations and is rounded out with general raw food lifestyle advice, nutrition notes, ingredient substitution suggestions, and recipe preparation times.
Verdict: Many new raw foodists will appreciate the extra kitchen guidance and approachable style, while the more experienced will enjoy Wignall's advanced recipes. Recommended for any raw food cookbook collection.
