Customer Review

on 31 May 2007
I love this food and the recipes are great but beware that this type of cuisine requires a lot of expensive equipment purchases, such as a juicer and dehydrator. Also, some of the dishes have over a dozen "ingredients", many of which, are full-page recipes themselves. I have more than once found myself lost in the complications especially when there are 7 or more "recipes" for one dish -- and I am an advanced cook with chef training.

Another thing to be aware of is the time and planning. You can't just say "hmmm I would really like falafel burritos today" totally out of the blue, and then make it. The prep time for sprouting and soaking starts 3 or 4 days ahead of time. But this is really a critique of the cuisine and not of the book itself.

One more caveat is that you may have trouble finding some of the ingredients, especially if you don't live near a city that supports many varieties of ethnic groceries. I have been completely unable to find kaffir lime leaves, black cumin or sun dried lime and have had to order these online.

If you are a raw-foody convert and willing to spend the time, money and planning involved in this "lifestyle". I say lifestyle because that is what this food discipline requires. If that is the case, you will enjoy countless hours of bliss preparing and enjoying these wonderful recipes.

If you are new to the kitchen, I would recommend some food preparation training before attempting it, especially before making the investment in the books and equipment.
