Much like my man ODB, I like it RAAAW! (Rest in peace, homie.)
When it comes to food, raw really is great. I won’t go into all the nitty-gritty of going au naturale, but it suffices to say that the benefits of keeping your vittles out of the frying pan don’t end with retaining flavor and saving time. Today’s project might just sell you on how radical raw can be.
The School of Raw is a new culinary school with cooking lessons that will have less to do with cooking and more to do with preserving the innate qualities of the ingredients we so often turn into mush and pack in squeeze tubes.
The goal of the school is to spread awareness and education about Raw foods and the miracles it is facilitating in peoples lives everyday. We are not seeking profit, we are seeking to educate educate and empower as many people as possible about Raw & Living Foods.
It seems to me that the idea of eating raw food wouldn’t turn people off so much if they understood how to prepare raw foods in ways they’d really love. Even I don’t like munching on carrot sticks alone, but couple them with tomatoes, honey, almonds or apples and you’ve got my taste buds standing at attention.
Ronnie and Mihn Skurow have been in the raw food game for a while now, and have an impressive array of recipes to share – some of which are sure to satisfy even the most refined refined-food palate. Now they’re not only opening a school to help spread their whole food gospel to those in their community, but they’re also going to be offering free, bi-weekly cooking shows online for free. So no matter where you are, you too can learn a thing or two about how tasty it can be to keep it raw.
Make ODB and I proud by backing helping The School of Raw come to fruition before March 16.
