DESCRIPTION:  Paperback

Cookbooks need not - indeed, should not - involve cooking, say the authors of this authoritative, beautifully illustrated book. And they should know. Sergei and Vayla Boutenko bring fifteen years' experience to this collection of scrumptious, sophisticated recipes and comprehensive guide to the raw life.

"Fresh "covers the whole range of recipes, including savory dishes, desserts, fermented foods, drinks, and wild foods. Techniques common to the recipes are introduced and clearly explained, including an inventory of uncommon fruits and how to handle and prepare them, as well as an immersion into the five basic flavors and the herbs, fruits, vegetables, and grains that help chefs bring out each flavor best.

The authors introduce the three stages of adaptation to this lifestyle and provide a concise review of minimal equipment requirements and ideal appliance additions for the well-stocked raw kitchen.

Sergei and Vayla Boutenko bring fifteen years experience to this collection of scrumptious, sophisticated recipes and comprehensive guide to the raw life. 

Featuring over 250 healthy recipes, Fresh manages a balancing act very few alternative cookbooks achieve: presenting simple yet sophisticated recipes for experienced faw foodies while providing all the information needed to guide the uninitiated toward a live-food diet.

Fresh has recipes for savory dishes, fermented foods, travel and survival foods, drinks and desserts, plus an inventory of all the uncommon fruits you've wanted to eat, but didn't know how to handle. A special section introduces readers to foraging for wild edibles, wih color photos and recipes for each plant. With a concise review of key kitchen equipment, an immersion into the five basic flavours, and suggestions for ways to get kids involved in a raw kitchen, this book will inspire the adventurous chef to experiment with confidence.

Sergei and Valya Boutenko (the second generation of the renowned Raw Family) provide a blueprint for adapting to the three common stages of the raw-food lifestyle that is based on their fifteen years of experience, as well as all the advantages of the diet.

"Not only do Sergei and Valya prepare the most delicious raw foods, which is talent enough, but the clarity, wisdom, and insights they share about raw food and health are breathtaking. This book is a must read for any aspiring health seeker-no question. What they teach now is unbelievably cutting edge, and everyone should know it."
