It’s been my good fortune to acquire entertaining in the raw, a beautiful gorgeous recipe book utilizing only raw food. The book came wrapped in plain brown paper and tied with dark red and green raffia “string”. I read on another site (I don’t remember which one) that it was wrapped like a gift. Even if you don’t use this as an “uncook” book, it can be an attention-getter and conversation starter. For me, it would make a great coffee table book. If you go to the link above on Amazon, you can take a peek inside and even search for recipes by name or ingredient.
Speaking of ingredients, a lot of them are ones that aren’t readily available to me. For instance, Irish moss. Shari from the forum mentioned it the other day but I don’t know what it is or how to use it. Maybe the book could also be educational? It has everything from soup to dessert and all that’s in-between.
The puzzling thing to me is the naming of the sections. Two I recognize—Introduction and Index. Seven I don’t. Blossom, Contemporary, Inspiration, Spice, Radiance, Revolution and Meaningful are all nice words but they tell me nothing about what’s in the accompanying pages. Plus, the white print on a light-colored background is difficult for my aging eyes to read, especially the white on dark almost mustard yellow. This one is a little easier.
Most of the recipes have lots of ingredients and I’m intimidated by more than a half dozen. I’m sure the results are good, though, considering its 3.5 out of 5 stars. Six of the reviews are 5 stars and three are 1 out of 5.
The note that came with it can be used as a bookmark is an invitation, as well.
Even the back is truly beautiful.
It isn’t only available as a hardback book, it also comes as an e-book for the Kindle.
