The raw food craze has well and truly swept the country, with raw food restaurants popping up all over. It may sound obscure at first, but actually there is plenty for foodies to enjoy if taking on a raw food diet. It’s not all about salads - carpaccios, tartares and ceviches are all super-cheffy raw food preparations bursting with fresh flavour and nutritional benefits.
Our contributors have also been hard at work coming up with a selection of sweet raw recipes, proving that baking isn't the only way to enjoy a sweet treat. Madeleine Shaw's raw chocolate brownie recipe is made with a heady combination of sticky Medjool dates, walnuts and coconut oil for a gloriously gooey consistency. Deb Durrant's Strawberry and pansy tart would make a lovely raw dinner party recipe.
A dehydrator is a raw foodie's best friend, as you can heat food to low temperatures while it still being classified as raw. Test out your new toy on Deb Durrant's Kale crisps.
