Everyday Raw by Matthew Kenney published by Gibbs-Smith. From their website: “Everyday Raw is an exciting new cookbook that will introduce the benefits and pleasure of eating healthful food that is organic, fresh and good for you! Preparing and eating raw food does not mean bland, whether it is a smoothie, a salad, or a mid-morning snack, you will love the tantalizing and delicious recipes included here. Filled with luscious photography, Chef Matthew Kenney has been preparing raw food for years and offers up a variety of delectable recipes including-Chocolate-Cherry Smoothie, Red-Chile Pineapple Dipping Sauce, Sesame Cashew Dumplings, Portobello Fajitas, and a Lemon Macaroon Cheesecake Tartlet that will leave you wondering why you haven’t started eating raw food sooner!”

I have learned a lot from Matthew Kenney’s book. The pictures are amazing and make you want to eat raw! Everything looks so delicious. Also his story always gets me. He was a cooked food chef and is now applying his knowledge to the raw food industry. Very cool!
