Book Description

Going Raw combines the beauty and flavor of a gourmet cookbook with everyday recipes that are practical for the real-world home chef. There are utilitarian books that offer a lot of great basics but do not illuminate the content with stylish and instructional photography. Going Raw promises the basics (kitchen gear, pantry ingredients, how to plan your grocery shopping and menus, prep and storage techniques) and delivers delicious, simple recipes for the starter raw foodist.  A 30-minute bonus DVD features various food preparation techniques, finished presentations, and “raw food 101” lifestyle tips and advice as well.

Around the same time I bought this one by Judita, a raw blog's ("Rawmazing", which I highly recommend!), and San Francisco's Cafe Gratitude's recipe book.

This book is a great place to start if you're curious about the growing raw food scene. Judita Wignall, in a warm, practical and easy tone, explains it all. She lays out the kitchen basics including tools and techniques, offers a range of wonderful recipes from the simplest, throw-it-together-and-eat-in-your-hand wraps to wonderful tasty raw main dishes and the prettiest desserts. Each recipe has a step-by-step photo series, showing exactly how to get it done. There's nothing precious or intimidating about her recipes, and she has included foods that are not too far removed from the already familiar, like her gorgeous raw vegan pizza, and her OMG brownies.

A great feature of the book is the planned menus, and the clear and easy nutritional information. She seems to have covered all the FAQs, including what she herself eats in a day.

And...the bonus DVD, tucked inside the cover, features Judita demonstrating recipes and techniques, which just brings it all to life.

Even if you're not into raw food, the book itself is a beautiful piece of art for its design and photography alone. Just a lovely thing to look at and admire.

I can't recommend this book highly enough if you're a beginner, and need guidance on how and why and what to do.

This book is beautiful and worth it to add to any raw kitchen. I've been raw for a little over a year and have a few of the popular raw recipe books: Sarma's, Ani's Essentials, and Ani's Desserts. Around the same time I bought this one by Judita, a raw blog's ("Rawmazing", which I highly recommend!), and San Francisco's Cafe Gratitude's recipe book. But Judita's is the one I've turned to the most. It has quickly become my favorite, if nothing else than to stare at the beautiful layout and pictures!

Her recipes aren't crazy unique, but they are all wonderful and everything I've tried have all come out amazing. Also, like most raw food books, there is a great deal of information on sprouting, dehydrating, technique, and reasons to be raw. Though most raw food books all say the same thing, I still managed to learn new things and think about things I already knew in different ways, which I really appreciated. And the fact that she has a method for blooming wild rice the raw way and have it turn out just as good as cooked rice is reason ALONE to get this book! I seriously love everything about this book, so don't hesitate to go for it!

I really like this book. The accompanying DVD helps, Judita is a cutie and the kitchen is trendy (complete with a gazillion other cookbooks in the background, likely intentional). The book is well organized, with WONDERFUL, LARGE COLOR PHOTOS. Collecting the materials mentioned in the book quickly turns into a scavenger hunt; finding the right, high quality goods for the best price. But it's all fun...unless you're piss poor, which many are. Some may grow disillusioned with 'healthy eating' as marketed by all but the Raw Food on a Budget book (and even that advises that one saves up for a Vitamix).

"Going Raw", like most other raw food cookbooks, require:

- Vitamix - centrifugal juicer - masticating juicer - bamboo mat - zester - wisk
- mandoline plane - slotted spoon - citrus juicer - dehydrator - food processor
- ice cream scoop - spiralizer - Ice cream maker - Cocktail shaker - wisk - microplane
- pie/tartlette pan - Colanders (varying sizes)- ceramic knives - quality boilers (tea; melt cocoa)
- Lg glass + SSteel mixing bowls - TONS o mason jars (+ sprouting top) - tongues
- Bamboo cutting boards - molds - rubber icetrays - glass measuring cups (vary sizes)
- spice mill/grinder (incl stone AND ceramic) - SSteel Sieves (varying mesh density)
- SSteel/plastic dry measuring cup

So, we're talking about some serious cash! Not to mention the obscure nutritional supplements, sea veggies, nuts and seeds, herbs, spices, fermented goods and the like. And once THAT'S all taken care of, you'll need the TIME to actually do this stuff. Perhaps that's why it's called a lifestyle. Perhaps that's also why the USA thinks that it's considerably more expensive to eat healthier, when in fact it really isn't.

Format: Paperback
I bought this as my first raw cookbook. Based on the reviews, I thought I would be able to make a fair amount of the recipes with what I had for equipment- just a food processor. There are a few reviews with different opinions on the subject, so I thought I would use numbers to make it easier to decide whether you have what you'll need.
There are 98 recipes in this cookbook, not including the salad dressings.
24 recipes need a blender
13 recipes call for a high speed blender such as Blendtec or Vitamix.
26 recipes use a food dehydrator.
17 recipes need a food processor.
4 recipes use a mandoline.
4 ice cream recipes use an ice cream maker, which I think can be made with a high speed blender.
A few recipes use a mortar, spiralizer, coffee grinder, nut bag or a chocolate mold.

18 recipes don't use any special equipment. Many of these are salads.

I'm not saying don't buy this book- I like it a lot. After buying a Blendtec, I can make a lot of the recipes- soups, smoothies, salads. But I'll need a dehydrator to make anything substantial. There are also good recipes that come with the Blendtec blender- smoothies, milk alternatives, salad dressing, sauces, soups- that are or can easily be turned raw.

What I'm trying to say is, if you're seriously considering going raw, you'll definitely need a blender (probably high speed) and a food dehydrator. Then you'll want to get food processor, a sprouter and mandoline and nut bag. And this book! It does have very good recipes that you just know will taste great.

Update:
Creamy Tomato Fettuccine- I am becoming more amazed at how raw foods are really delicious. For a junk foodist like me to actually like this cold, raw zucchini pasta is saying something.
