I had the pleasure last night of hosting a raw cooking demo with the wonderful, divine, sexy Carin from Galas Kitchen what I love about meeting others in the vegan community is how much you learn from Them Carin is very inspiring and I love the simplicity and taste sensations she always creates.
I never thought I would but I am starting to have a real interest in raw foods. Below is the recipe that Carin shared with us all last night that was well received. I decided to whip these up tonight and yum yum yummy. Fresh, simple and sexy. I can imagine having people over, a large wooden board with all the ingredients in the middle of the table and everyone wrapping and munching.
