While we were in Vancouver, Canada I visited the Raw Foundation Culinary Arts Institute and completed Alissa Cohen's Living on Live Foods Raw Food Chef - Level 1 certificate. Yes people, I am now a qualified raw food chef!
Our instructor - Miss Janice - was the perfect host chef. I learned SO MUCH and used every square inch of paper to write everything down.
We made green smoothies, chocolate brownies, date torte, mock salmon pate, stuffed mushrooms, collard wraps, broccoli soup, fettucine and raw spaghetti. We received valuable teaching about how to put foods together according to the five tastes (sweet, sour, salty, spicy and bitter), how to use herbs and spices to create ethnic flavours, superfoods that balance hormones....and too much more to mention. It was all GREAT!
Thanks Miss Janice for a fabulous time!
