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.

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! Read more about the SF Green Fest on VegNews Magazine’s blog.

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.
I had a great time meeting and hanging out with lovely Khloe Kardashian and Tami Erin. Tami was Pipi Longstocking, how cool is that? And, we all know Khloe from Keeping up with the Kardashians. They’re even more gorgeous in person.
Check out photos from the wonderful book launch party VegNews Magazine threw for Ani’s Raw Food Desserts. It was the best party ever, and people drove for hours to be there.
