I dislike how the pictures in this book are located in two sections, very close to the middle of the book. It makes navigating the book a little awkward. I also wish the book had been formatted in such a way as to make it easier to find the beginning of each section. The other cookbooks I own have colored pages or something similar to denote the beginning of a new category of recipes, which makes it easier to find when you're flipping through the pages quickly. I do not mind however, having to flip all around the book to find the recipes for various components of one recipe because almost every single raw cookbook I've owned is formatted like that.
The main difficulty I've experienced with this book are the overabundance of nuts in the recipes. This would not be a problem if I were cooking only for myself, but as I usually cook dinner for my boyfriend as well, who has a tree nut allergy, I am oftentimes limited on which recipes I can use. If you don't have a nut allergy, then don't let this deter you. But if, for any reason at all, you are restricted on which nuts you can eat, this book will be a little more difficult to work with (but I expected that when I bought it since nuts are a large component of raw vegan diets).
As I said before, this is a good cookbook and everything I've made so far has been delicious. It is taking me a long time to work through this book, partly because most of these dishes take a long time to prepare and I try to balance the more involved recipes in this book with other, simpler recipes from other cookbooks, and partly because there are just so many recipes to try! If you want to eat delicious food and aren't afraid of spending some extra time in the kitchen or being a little more involved in your food prep, then I would recommend this book. Even if you are a beginner to raw foods, if you're not afraid of a challenge, then I'd recommend this book as a good place to start if you're looking to advance your raw foods lifestyle.
I love this book. A work of a genius.
Though Doug has 400 recipes in this book, many of the recipes have variations and tips to allow for creativity, flavor or ingredient preferences which pushes the recipe count higher in my estimation.
I will mention that I've had this book since I started my raw journey and some of the recipes scared me because I was still figuring out how to be raw. I'm visual and though there are some pictures, there aren't nearly as many pictures as there are recipes. Now that I'm more familiar with raw uncooking, I absolutely love this book! Some of the recipes are time consuming to prepare, but a lot of them can be done quickly and easily. Doug also uses a lot of ingredients that are readily available. When he has recipes with uncommon ingredients, he generally offers tips on where to obtain ingredients or substitutions. I have other books that call for ingredients that I can't purchase in my area which complicates food preparation.
Thanks Doug for making raw food uncooking fun!
