Everyday Raw by Matthew Kenney

Thai Salad with Creamy Thai Dressing

I don't think adjectives exist to describe the food in Everyday Raw by Matthew Kenney. This isn't a review of the book. I asked Matthew if I could blog my way through his book, and he graciously said "yes." His creations are a marriage of culinary technique and artistry.

I started working through the book pre-accident, so it's been at least three weeks since I've tasted this food. But I haven't forgotten the experiences. The Thai Salad and Dressing? I'm still thinking about it. The effort was worth the experience.

Salsa Fresca
Mango Guacamole
Two of my favorite foods are salsa and guacamole. Make these two dishes together and be in Heaven as you eat. I'd never had gauc with mango in it. The combination works well.
Banana Almond Butter Cup

The Classic

The Banana Almond Butter Cup is in Raw Food/Real World. I had to make it again. I made it on February 5th, right before the Blizzard of Century here in Maryland (seriously, the most snow in the state EVER since records started being kept in 1883). It was cold outside, but who cares? It was a taste of summer in a cup. Frozen bananas, cacao nibs, cinnamon, almond milk, and agave. Wow. It's as a good as it sounds.

The Classic is frozen strawberries, frozen bananas, and almond milk. Since bananas and strawberries go together like peas and carrots, how could it go wrong? It was perfect.

Until next time,

I agree Althea -- I've yet to make a Kenney recipe that hasn't exceeded my expectations. I used to think the Everyday Raw recipes would be too complex for every day but honestly some of them I have made repeatedly and I really do turn to that book often. Will be looking forward to your posts as you blog your way through that book.
