I read her blog a bit beforehand and she seems quite nice. I figured well, she probably has friends and family with some integrity to be truthful. Worse comes to worse, at least I can write a review about it. So here it is. Finally.
Caveat: I'm not a raw foodist. I'm an omnivore who is interested in incorporating more vegetables in my diet in interesting dishes, and general healthy eating. I almost exclusively buy cookbooks related to healthy cooking. The exception being asian food (even then I try). This review is also based on 4 recipes. Also, when I bought this book I had two other raw food cook books:
The Raw Food Revolution Diet by Cherie Soria, Brenda Davis, and Vesanto Melina
Everyday Raw by Matthew Kenney
I made one thing from Raw Food Revolution (bought because of the seemingly overwhelming good reviews, also by suspiciously single-review persons). It was a soup. It was ok. I'm sure she has more, but I'm a visual "cook". I'm inspired by images to cook. Plus, the recipes didn't sound very appealing to me. I'll try more and write a more appropriate review for Ms. Soria's book one day.
The Everyday Raw required ingredients and a dehydrator which I didn't have so that stayed on the shelf.
So by default I ended up going for Kristen's book all the time. As I mentioned I've only made 4 recipes.
The first was the marinara. This wasn't too bad. It's a tad astringent (acidic?) for my taste buds.
I enjoyed the pesto. I made that twice. The first time was really good. The second time...maybe it went off? because for some reason the smell started to turn me away. Be warned! The odor is EXTREMELY pungent. I took it to work once and everyone stared at me :(
The turnip ravioli was also very good. I made it three times. I have to ensure the turnip slices are completely soaked to the point of transparency otherwise it still has a raw taste. It does require quite a bit of work and time.
The fourth dish was a complete miss. It was so bad I couldn't finish it and I finish everything. It was the burger. I was really really looking forward to it as it sounded like a non-raw-foodist she gave it to really liked it. And I love veggie burgers. I'm wondering what I did wrong. It was mealy in texture, sloppy, and sweet. I've never had a sweet burger so the taste was just wrong. Perhaps I don't like the dates? (I hope not or I'm hosed for a lot of raw food recipes).
That fourth dish was where I stopped. It was such a disappointment and expensive I got discouraged. In addition the other recipes haven't really inspired me or I didn't have the needed tools (dehydrator).
I would give it 3.5 stars based on the recipes I tried. It loses the other stars for there not being enough images (the book doesn't come with any but you can see them online) and it's a ridiculously thin and small book for what I paid. I was shocked when I received it.
A suggestion for the author: I think posting pictures online is a fair alternative to incorporating them in the book to keep costs down (hopefully the pdf has them incorporated). If you're going to host pictures online, why not take a picture of every recipe?
Kristen's recipes are my favorite. All of her books are wonderful and everything goes well with wine.
