About the Author

Gabrielle Fackre Chavez began her professional healing journey in the 1970's through a study of the connections between nutrition and health. A degree in biology and religion at Yale University provided the foundation for a career in practical healing arts and spirituality. She is an accomplished herbalist, gardener, flower essence practitioner, Reiki master, and founding pastor of Christ the Healer United Church of Christ, an interfaith spiritual community in Portland, Oregon. In 2001, after embracing a raw and living foods diet for its spiritual value as well as increased vitality, she trained as a raw food chef, hosted a weekly gourmet raw potluck, and founded Share the Love Catering to feed a growing network of persons searching for food that nourishes the soul as well as the body.

This book was a great help as I started out on my raw adventures.
R Rheaume
It is a simple book, but it is obvious that the author is sharing tried and true recipes that are both nutritious and delicious.
Glenn
Many, if not most of the recipes in this book, call for very large quantities of nuts and seeds.

This book was a great help as I started out on my raw adventures. It contains a number of easy to follow recipes which have become staples in my diet. My only problem with this book is that the table of contents is not intuitive making it hard to refer back to recipes. You need to remember that the name of that Kale dish you like is "Disappearing Kale" and won't be found in the index under K but D. If the author does a second edition PLEASE make finding recipes easier! Thanks. Note: This book has no pictures (for that try The Raw Gourmet by Nomi Shannon which is excellent). You should also be aware that many of the recipes call for the use of a food dehydrator which is a great machine but not cheap.

Gabrielle Chavez's book, The Raw Gourmet, brings a new dimension to the subject of raw cuisine!

The information is direct, well researched, and presented in a fashion that is appealing to those new to the concept of "Going Raw" as well as to those who have already had the pleasure of indulging in Raw Delights!

Her recipes lead to a delicious discovery of taste and texture, without guilt or guile!

A great gift that anyone regardless of eating choices and cooking styles can and will enjoy!

This is just a word of caution to people like myself, who do not care for raw food recipes that contain a ton of nuts, seeds and oils; in other words, unreasonable amounts of fat.

Many, if not most of the recipes in this book, call for very large quantities of nuts and seeds. On top of that, there is not a single recipe in the book that tells how many servings it makes! So if I were to make the Swedish Neatball Dinner for example, which calls for 2 cups of (soaked) walnuts, almonds or hazelnuts, 1 cup of (soaked) sunflower seeds, 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1/2 cup ground flax seeds -- I would have no idea how many people that's supposed to serve. And I don't care if some of the nuts in the recipes *are* soaked -- that's still an unacceptable level of fat.

A brownie recipe calls for 3 cups of almonds and 1 cup of walnuts; that's FOUR CUPS OF NUTS, and no indication is given of how many it's supposed to serve! With that many nuts in it, I would feel I could only have a tiny sliver -- which would not be very satisfying -- if I didn't want to OD on fat.

The Wild Mushroom Tart calls for 2 cups of walnuts in the crust, and 2 cups of macadamia nuts in the filling. A pate calls for 2 cups of walnuts and a HALF CUP of olive oil. All the pie crusts use from 2 to 3 cups of nuts, some even calling for an *additional* cup of nuts in the filling!

There are only two people in my family, and I can't use recipes like these. I like raw recipes that make a large enough quantity to provide a satisfying meal for one or two people without having to consume pounds of nuts and cups of oil. Jennifer Cornbleet's Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People is a real favorite of mine!

This book is filled with numerous recipes that have become staples in my diet. It is a simple book, but it is obvious that the author is sharing tried and true recipes that are both nutritious and delicious. The book contains useful general tips about the raw lifestyle (especially tips for traveling) but the recipes are the real stars. Try the "grawnola" and your breakfast will never be boring again! This is a wonderful book by a sincere and talented author. It's definitely one of the best raw recipe books I've found.

This is an excellent resource for anyone wishing to learn and begin following a Raw food diet. With easy to make recipes and just enough background on the Raw food, healthy living regime for beginners and long time Raw fooders. I highly recommend this book for every Raw food gourmet library!

This is another book which offers too much nuts in raw diet. I do not recommend this book. Try Victoras Kulvinskas.

I love this cookbook! It was very difficult to imagine giving up cooked/processed foods like Mac & Cheese, or pizza, but this cookbook offers many ways to satisfy cravings! The recipes are super-easy, and tasty too!
