Ani at Artisanal LA, Santa Monica, CA

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

I had so much fun celebrating the pre-launch of Ani’s Raw Food Asia at Artisanal LA in Santa Monica.

All of these beautiful photos were taken by the amazing Sherman Lee. Thanks Sherman!!

It was a weekend full of local and seasonal gourmet foods (though way too much bacon! – what’s up with bacon these days?) and great expert panels and talks.

I love this fish eye photo, it was a full crowd with great people old and new to raw foods and the raw food diet and lifestyle. Thanks to the wonder woman organizer Shawna Dawson for all her support, for announcing my talk over the loud speaker, and for putting me and Ani’s Raw Food Asia in their printed program.

Q+A is my favorite part of my appearances because I get to listen and interact with my new friends.

It’s always so nice to have my brother Max and my family with me at my events.

This lovely lady kept asking me about how to learn to make raw food. I say if you’re interested in making food, you have to learn how to make all foods first. Then you can translate it into raw food prep.

Libby drove all the way up from San Diego with her friends just to grab an early copy of Ani’s Raw Food Asia.

Please check my homepage and also my calendar of events for upcoming events and stops along my book tour. Hope to see you all very soon. xoxo

Food & Wine 2009 Cookbook

Food & Wine 2009 Cookbook

Two of my recipes are included in the 2009 Food & Wine Cookbook.

2009 Food & Wine Cookbook - Ani's Raw Marinara recipe

2009 Food & Wine Cookbook - Ani's Zucchini Noodles with Raw Tomato Marinara recipe

I love this recipe for Zucchini Noodles with Raw Tomato Marinara. Super easy to make. Just blend tomatoes and herbs with some lemon to add that tart flavor of cooked tomatoes and a date for added sweetness. Serve marinara over thinly sliced zucchini ‘noodles’ for a wheat free, low calorie, raw food pasta dish that will help you loose weight and feel great too.

2009 Food & Wine Cookbook - Ani's Corn Chowder Soup

2009 Food & Wine Cookbook - Ani's Raw Sweet Corn and Cashew Chowder

This delicious Raw Sweet Corn and Cashew Chowder is made by blending fresh corn with cashews for creaminess, a splash of olive oil for rich smoothness, and fresh cilantro for brightness.

Ani on The View from the Bay

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

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.
