4.0 out of 5 stars Even more accessible, May 1, 2009
This review is from: Ani's Raw Food Desserts: 85 Easy, Delectable Sweets and Treats (Paperback)
Ani Phyo is getting more and more popular by the day, and in large part that's due to the fact that she, more than any other raw foodist, is making raw food easily and readily accessible. Yes, she does use the dreaded dehydrator, but not for nearly as long as some of her peers. Her food looks and tastes good, but it isn't nearly as fussy and "gourmet" as some of the other stuff out there.

This book goes even further towards accessibility than her last book. Whereas before her recipes for ice "kream" required the use of young Thai coconuts- wonderful, but not always easy to access- here she gives a recipe using easy to find shredded coconut and an alternative preparation with raw coconut. Also, while on her websites she gives recipes for (really wonderful) chocolate using very hard to find raw cacao butter, here she provides a method with coconut oil and then, again, gives tips to use the harder to find ingredient. Yeah- now it's even that much easier to enjoy these (healthier) desserts.

She provides recipes for chocolates, ice creams, fudge, cupcakes, cobblers, pies and even cheesecake- yum! However, she's a little short on recipes for cakes- not entirely sure why, and I'm disappointed because I was hoping to see more of those (she had a few in her last book). Also, the cupcake recipes seem more like mini cobblers. She doesn't give any instructions on how to eat- with a fork? by hand- so I'm not sure what the texture is like. Still, it feels like a worthy experiment to undertake :-)

I'm exciting about trying pretty much every recipe in this book.
