Last week’s dinner at the Test Kitchen was a chance for me to introduce my latest Raw Food 3.0, inspired by molecular gastronomy without the chemicals, vegan and raw. My 6 courses were presented to a main stream foodie audience in a fine dining atmosphere. And it RAWked!
Smoked Anaheim Chili
Lapsang Souschong Wild Mushroom
Molten Cookie Dough
It was so much fun to get to feed everyone my new style of Gastrawnomique cuisine in such a beautiful setting with amazing staff. It was a packed house both nights. Celebrities who came to dine included Frances Fisher, John Salley, Jarad Butler, and Diane Warren.
In the kitchen were some of the most amazing chefs assisting me and making sure my dinners were successful both nights including Bravo Top Chef Alex Reznik and Next Food Network Stars Doreen Fang and DAS. I’ll post up more behind the scenes and kitchen photos next….
Generous sponsors included Excalibur Dehydrators, Earth Circle Organic, Big Tree Farms, Sunfood, Gold Mine Natural Foods, and Sambazon.
These photos were all taken by Maria Loewenstein, except for the Lapsang Souschong Wild Mushroom which was taken by Rogelio Marhx.
I’ve developed the world’s first ever superfood chocolate making kits! They’re made up of cacao butter, which you melt. Then, mix in powder made up of mesquite, lucuma, and cacao powder. Pour liquid chocolate into your candy molds. Lastly, drop in either cacao nibs, goji berries, or golden berries, and place your molds in the fridge to set and harden. These chocolates will keep at room temperature.
Watch my Author’s at Google Lunchtime Talk from May 4th, 2009. This was the kickoff for Ani’s Raw Food Desserts book tour.
Past authors in the Google list of speakers include Obama and Hillary Clinton. Plus, the other Google campuses were netcast in to join my talk too. So cool!
I show Google how to make my Raspberry Ganache Fudge Cake, from page 49 of my book. And I feed Google my famous Chocolate Candies.
The Ready Mix kits I’m launching will help you make your own Cake and also Chocolate Truffles. I’m still tweaking this product, but for now, it’s available from Essential Living Foods website:
