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:
Sexiest Raw Vegan Woman
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 Phyo’s Raw Food Kitchen at Mom Tri’s Villa Royale, Thailand: 2 min, 41 sec
This is an overview of the workshop I taught in Thailand at Mom Tri’s Villa Royale in Phuket. It was edited and posted immediately after the workshop on January 24, 2010. This video ends with a view of the beautiful sunset over the ocean. The end to a perfect day.
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.
I’ll be teaching a 4-hour workshop with 6-7 recipes at Mom Tri’s Villa Royale Resort, Phuket, in Thailand on Jan 24th, Sunday from 1-5pm. If you’re in SE Asia, please come join me for a day of delicious food made with local fresh ingredients at this lovely resort!
Here’s the menu so far, subject to change depending on local available ingredients:
Garden Pate in Collard Rolls
Miso Shitake Soup
Fresh Taco Wraps
Raspberry Ganache Fudge Cake (made with toasted cocoa powder)
Coconut Kream Pie with Chocolate Fudge Sauce on Almond Pie Crust
Mango Goji Lime Smoothie and/or Durian Coconut Smoothie

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!
