Book Description

30 April 2007
In Raw, award-winning chef Charlie Trotter elevates the flavors and complexity of raw fruits and vegetables, using basic techniques such as juicing, dehydrating, and blending.

Charlie Trotter's raw-food tasting menus at his Chicago restaurant have showcased raw food at the highest level, while Roxanne Klein's eponymous restaurant in Larkspur, California, has become a fine-dining destination, earning her international recognition for her cuisine.

Experience the revelation of this dynamic cuisine in RAW, a landmark volume that pairs visionary chefs Trotter and Klein. The authors pay the ultimate tribute to the culinary heights that raw food can scale in such dishes as Broccoflower Couscous with Curry Oil; Three Peppercorn-Crusted Cashew Cheese with Honeycomb and Balsamic Vinegar; Bleeding Heart Radish Ravioli with Yellow Tomato Sauce; and Watermelon Soup with Sharlyn Melon Granit?©. Each recipe is complemented by a detailed wine pairing, conceived to heighten the tastes, textures, and aromas of the ensemble. Juices, a natural extension of the raw-food repertoire, are also featured in such soothing preparations as Red Roxie, Prickly Pear and Pomegranate, and Cucumber-Lime Water.

Artfully presented with Tim Turner's award-winning photography; healthful; and deeply satisfying, chefs Trotter and Klein's food celebrates ingredients in their glorious natural state. In such skilled hands, raw food is nothing short of a revolution in the the way we cook and eat.

Product Description

Amazon Review

If you think "raw food" means carrots and alfalfa sprouts, Raw will astound you with its elegance and inventiveness. It's a combination no-cook book featuring gourmet recipes using raw and dehydrated vegetables, and a gorgeous, eye-popping, food photography book.

The large, glossy book is beautifully designed, with well-arranged recipes, presentation notes, eloquent language and full-page, bigger-than-life photographs of exquisitely arranged food. Each recipe is introduced by an enticing description, e.g., "...the juxtapositions of the crunchy peppercorn pieces and the creamy cheese [made from cashews], the crispy smoked almonds and the chewy dried apricots, the erotic gooeyness of the honeycomb mounds and the elegant crispiness of the thyme spouts..." This is for special meals, not everyday--the recipes are not quick to prepare, and many include references to other recipes.

Authors Charlie Trotter and Roxanne Klein are master chefs at two internationally acclaimed gourmet vegetarian raw-food restaurants--Charlie Trotter's in Chicago and Roxanne's in California. Photographer Tim Turner turns food photography into contemporary art. Wine notes by Jason Smith give the final touch of elegance. Highly recommended for the adventurous, gourmet willing to go the next step in vegetarian fine dining and anyone--cook or not--who appreciates food photography. --Joan Price, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tasty and healthy 10 Jan 2004
This delightful book contains more than one hundred recipies of raw foods that can be prepared by slicing, dehydrating and juicing or cooked at low temperatures. Compiled by Roxanne Klein, a proponent of the health benefits of raw food, and restaurateur and writer Charlie Trotter, it opens up a new world of culinary delight in which the food retains all of its nutritional value.
Intense heat destroys beneficial enzymes and that is why raw is better. The authors explain the beauty and the health benefits of fruits and vegetables whilst providing delicious recipes like for example Polenta with Wild Mushroom Ragout and Peppercorn Crusted Cashew Cheese with Honeycomb and Balsamic Vinegar.
In their engaging writing style, Klein and Trotter take a fresh look at the benefits and the tasty variety that are possible in a raw food diet, although some of their ingredients might not be easy to find for the average person. Tim Turner's beautiful full colour photographs illustrate the text. This book ought to be on every vegan and vegetarian's shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5* HOTEL RECIPES! 2 April 2012
I bought this book in italian for my mother, a great cook, to help her build up a sophisticated menu to impress her friends, and ultimately introduce them to the best raw food cuisine can offer.

The recipes are amazing, and so are the pictures. It is worth the price, as the authors are expert chefs, and run their own raw restaurant in US. If you are a Londoner, and familiar with Saf restaurant, you get the picture.

I wouldn't recommend it to beginners of the raw food world, as the recipes are often elaborated (a bit like french cuisine), many of the dishes need preparation one day in advance. However, if you are up for a challenge, like my mother, go for it!
It would make a great gift for raw foodists.

4.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of delicious reasons to eat raw. 22 Dec 2011
Raw is worth a serious look. It's not easy and it will require you to tilt your brain a bit. The good news is that the recipes are well-written and referenced, detailed and tested. If you do the work, the results are beautiful and delicious. For some it's simply about health, for others it's about a quantum shift in thinking. For most, this will be another culinary adventure

5.0 out of 5 stars Elegant and non-fad Trotter at best 30 Oct 2010
The recipes are somewhat complex to execute but the results are worth it. One gets a very good insight into basic raw food preparation. This book will last a lifetime whereas many of the current raw-cookbooks should be taken of the market altogether because they are made by amateurs who do not possess the basic skills to teach other people how to prepare good food.
