Yesterday, we shot 3 segments for Ani’s Raw Food Essentials for web, TV, and cable:

  • Tomato Chili with Taco Nut Meat, pages 145 – 146
  • Coconut Cake with Nutella Hazelnut Sauce, page 271
  • Water Kefir, page 56

The videos will air one a month starting late May, after the new book is available. Here’s a few photos from the day.

makeup ani phyo raw food essentials

Makeup works wonders, and each time I work with a makeup artist, I learn new ways for applying looks. Martin Christopher does makeup for the Playboy Bunnies, and I loved what he did with me eyes and hair.

To get as much of the counter and ingredients into our shots, I had to stand as low to the counter as possible. That meant standing with my legs straddled for hours…quite the thigh workout.

Skye Van Raalte-Herzog (producer), Todd Stevens (exec producer), and Aaron Lee (camera) were great at giving me feedback and direction. They’ve obviously done these shoots many times before and really knew what would work well on camera. They were an awesome team to work with.

A behind-the-camera perspective photo shot by my assistant Jules Castillo. Jules helped us to set up the kitchen for our shoot, then he helped me prep my ingredients too. Great assistants like Jules are wonderful to have around on shoots and projects.

Everyone enjoyed eating up all the food after the shoot. It’s always fun to watch reactions to my food when folks try it for the first time. Skye enjoys lots of raw foods already, but Todd was blown away at how simple and delicious everything was. Thank goodness he loves nuts, since both dishes used walnuts, almonds, and brazil nuts.

I had a birthday celebration to attend last night after the video shoot. Sweetie Martin made sure my hair and makeup were perfect for my evening out. What did I tell you….Playboy hair! I felt like an LA hottie. That is one of the many things I love about LA. You can never be too over or under dolled up.

Once these videos go live, I’ll make sure to post them here. So check back for the first one late May. I can’t wait to watch them myself!

Ani’s Raw Food Durian Essentials: 4 min, 39 sec
Watch video
I’m in love with durian. I love the flavor, texture, and yup, even the scent. So, I flew myself to the other side of our planet, all the way to beautiful Bali, Indonesia, to visit during their 2 month durian season. There, I was able to enjoy a fresh durian daily, and even visited a durian farm where I ate fresh durian straight off the tree. This was the highlight of almost all my gastronomical adventures in life.

Many people in the USA have not yet seen or tried durian fruit. So, I shot this video in Seminyak, on the West Coast of Bali, as an introduction to the King of Fruit. I hope this video may encourage you to give this delectable fruit a try.

I was a returning guest on The View from the Bay on Friday, Nov 13th. I love hosts Spencer Christian and Janelle Wang. I showed them how easy it is to make my famous raw vegan Chocolate Raspberry Ganache Cake, from “Ani’s Raw Food Desserts“.

Spencer Christian, host, and me on set before the live show. A big inspiration to me. Spencer was the weatherman on Good Morning America, and had his own wine show on Food Network.

The lovely Janelle Wang. This fellow Asian American woman is a huge inspiration to me!! Spencer loves vegan raw foods. You can tell he walks a healthy lifestyle by how great he looks.
