I am pleased to share with you the Radio Talk Show entitled “Miam Miam” (Yum Yum in French!) and aired live this morning where radio journalists Jean-Charles Simon and Véronique Zbinden invited me as special guest, along with another guest reached by phone, from Cook It Raw (an interesting concept which has in fact little to do with raw food). It was a great opportunity to discuss the raw scene and explain why, in a very laid-back and fun atmosphere, more and more people are attracted to raw food.
I brought a few sample dishes, of course, including a raw oat, chia and hemp milk porridge (as it was breakfast time) and to really impress, a lemon cheesecake and chocolate ganache — all raw of course! This was to illustrate that raw food can be truly delicious, and gourmet! I was asked to bring something surprising and I think it worked!
I certainly hope that this show may have inspired a few and that thanks to this broadcast to the greater public, some will recognize in this a fantastic opportunity that has come their way — that of discovering and trying raw food, as this has the potential to truly transform their lives!
The subject of the show:
The raw planet – Is it healthier to eat raw?
Restaurants, classes, blogs, take-out services, individuals as well as top chefs: those attracted by raw food and wanting to reinvent traditional cooking or rather, uncooking, are growing in numbers.
Why should we stop cooking? Does it taste better? Is it healthier? More environmentally sound? Amy Webster, raw food coach, tells us all we need to know about this fast developing trend.
Moreover, top chefs are gathering each year in nature, in wild settings, and are attemtping to reinvent culinary creativity from their natural habitats. This concept called “Cook it Raw” was born just after the Copenhagen Climate Change Summit, as a challenge. “Cook it raw” is now a think tank, a trend, a philosophy to rethink the art of gastronomy in an enlightened, conscious, sustainable and environmentally correct fashion. One of its founders, Andrea Petrini, talks about it.
Note: If you do not wish to listen to this part, because Cook it Raw has in fact little to do with raw food, except for an attempt to work with pure, natural ingredients only, then I invite you to skip minutes 07:14 to 14:00
