Fresh manages a balancing act very few alternative cookbooks achieve: presenting a sophisticated collection of recipes for knowledgeable raw foodies, while gently providing all the introductory information required to guide the uninitiated (and even the previously uninterested) toward a fulfilling and flavourful live-food diet. The authors review the most common questions and answers and set out a blueprint of the three common stages involved in adapting to the raw food lifestyle, based on their work and experience with the thousands of clients and community members worldwide who have converted and shared their stories with the Boutenkos. They present the nine advantages of the diet and lifestyle and offer a wide range of perfectly raw foods, including savoury dishes, desserts, fermented foods, drinks, and edibles in the wild. Techniques common to the recipes are introduced and clearly explained, including an inventory of uncommon fruits and how to handle and prepare them, as well as an immersion into the five basic flavours and the herbs, fruits, vegetables, and grains that help chefs bring out each flavour best. The authors provide a concise review of minimal equipment requirements and ideal appliance additions for the well-stocked raw kitchen. They even provide sections on getting kids involved in a raw kitchen and some of their favourite raw jams and pies.
