Tour Dates for Ani’s Raw Food Essentials

I'm excited about my newest book Ani's Raw Food Essentials, available everywhere by May 3rd. It's a huge hard cover book with over 250 recipes. It's printed in 2 color, like Ani's Raw Food Kitchen. My goal is to make my books accessible, and get these recipes into your hands so you can enjoy making healthy treats with them. By printing in 2 color instead of full color, the book only costs $27 rather than $45. There's gorgeous color inserts, as you can see from the photos above.

Expo West Day 1

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

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.
