Ani Voted Sexiest Raw Vegan Woman 2009

I’ve been voted Sexiest Raw Vegan Woman 2009 by the raw community again this year, but by default. Alicia Silverstone actually won the votes, I came in 2nd place. But she doesn’t consider herself raw anymore. What an honor! Plus, Steve from Sacred Chocolates sent me a congratulatory package of his delicious chocolate hearts…yummmy.

Last year, I was surprised that I was awarded 1st place for Best of Raw 2008:

Best Chef
Favorite Cookbook
Sexiest Raw Vegan Woman
and

2nd place for Favorite Educator

Listen to my interview from last year on Raw Inspirations Radio where I chat with lovely host Laura Fox about my history, inspirations, and what the future holds.

Ani’s Raw Food Essentials

My new book, Ani's Raw Food Essentials, will be available everywhere May 3rd! I was dropped shipped an early copy fresh off the presses, and this is a huge book. With over 250 recipes, it's my first hard cover. It's always amazing to hold the finished book in my hands. And, it takes 9 months for the book to be designed, printed, and distributed before it shows up in bookstores. A long journey.

Preparing for our Workshop at Mom Tri’s Villa Royale

A fun time was had in the kitchen preparing 8 dishes for my workshop on Sunday Jan 24, 2010 at Mom Tri’s Villa Royale. Sylvie (in black) is the PR manager who made this all happen.

With my language barrier…the kitchen staff finally understood that none of my food was being heated or cooked. Here I show them how to make Garden Pate filled Nori Rolls.

Sylvie and I toasted to another great day in the kitchen with coconut water! I was in heaven in Thailand with all the Thai baby coconuts. And the chefs are super fast at opening them up and getting the meat out….amazing.

Ani at SF Green Festival

Mayor Gavin Newsom at SF Green Festival last Saturday. It’s the largest green festival in the country. Mayor Newsom is a long time vegetarian.
The hall was packed for my talk on raw food desserts, nutrition, and overall well being. I demoed my famous Chocolate Raspberry Ganache Cake and Spiced Blueberry Cobbler, recipes from “Ani’s Raw Food Desserts”. There was a feeding frenzy over the sample tastes of the desserts, and they were delicious!

Joel Madden

 

I catered a private raw food event, then stopped by to visit Joel Madden who was spinning last night at the London Hotel in West Hollywood. A great DJ, and a super fun eve. Joel Madden is married to gorgeous Nicole Richie, and they’re both committed to living eco green. For their 2nd child’s room, they choose non-toxic paints for the walls, organic cotton sheets, and wood products made from reclaimed susatinable wood from the Brazilian rain forest.
