What is Raw?
UNbelievably Delicious
Living Food

Raw is the first major guide to preparing gourmet raw cuisine, an introduction to the finest dining this planet has to offer, with unique dishes made entirely from vegetarian and living foods.

Raw offers ultimate pure flavor, thousands of textures, and beautiful effects on body, mind, soul and the environment! This isn't 100 variations of salad, but an ultra-gourmet cuisine, which fuses ancient culinary techniques with a modern and practical lifestyle. From sun-baked pizzas, satisfying sandwiches, vegan sushi, the best burritos and sprouted-rice dishes, to sangria and shakes, cookies, pudding, and pies.

You're about to acquaint yourself with the vibrant flavors and miraculous nutrition of plant life in a way you never have before.

"Gourmet raw cuisine"--if that sounds like an oxymoron, you'll be amazed by the creativity of the recipes in this book. Every food is "live" (uncooked) in these vegetarian recipes from Juliano, the raw food guru of Los Angeles. Juliano believes that fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, beans and seeds in their rawest and purest form are the most nourishing foods. If your imagination stops at alfalfa sprouts and grated carrots, hold onto your cutting board. Juliano's recipes include Butternut Squash Soup, New Moon Fruit Stew, Thai Green Papaya Salad, Living Buckwheat Pizza Crust, Mango Essene Bread, Mock Salmon Sushi, Raw Spring Rolls, seven varieties of burritos, nine varieties of pizza and nine unusual smoothies. Desserts? Try EZ Pudding (made with maple syrup, avocados and carob powder) or Cashew Gelato (cashew butter, maple syrup and almonds, served frozen). There are also condiments, dressings and sauces, and plenty of information about preparing raw foods, including how to soak and sprout beans, grains, seeds and nuts.

It may seem like cheating, but a food dehydrator is permitted to "bake" pizza, cookies and breads. It blows hot air, but never heats foods hotter than 120 degrees F, which, claims Juliano, "allows all the delicate nutrients that are usually burned out of cooked foods to remain intact." Raw is filled with gorgeous colour photos of the foods in all their vibrant colours and a number of photos of the vibrant Juliano (not in the raw). "Before you know it," says Juliano, "you'll be Raw and loving it." --Joan Price, Amazon.com


"Juliano is the toast of Hollywood, somewhere between a chef and a guru. The food is spectacular, lush, colorful and tactile, he's more than a chef, he's an inspiration." -- "Spin""Food fads come and go, Pan Asian, Haute Southern, Pacific Rim fusion, but the latest dining trends is actually the oldest: eating food raw." -- "USA Today"
