Overview

Picking up where the bestselling Raw Food/Real World left off, Sarma Melngailis invites us inside her glamorous restaurant, Pure Food and Wine, with dozens more recipes for fresh and vibrant juices, shakes, soups, simple dishes, main courses, desserts, and cocktails.

  • Whip up an antioxidant-rich Goji Tropic Shake or a sweet, cleansing Cilantro-Pineapple Shake for delicious nutrition on the go

  • Find out what makes the Chanterelle and Kalamata Olive Ravioli the restaurant's most beloved entrée
  • Celebrate with a raw Thanksgiving dinner, complete with "dark meat" portobello, "white meat" large oyster mushrooms, stuffing, mashed celeriac, cranberries, and brussels sprouts

No juicer? No dehydrator? No problem! Sarma shows that raw food preparation doesn't have to be daunting, and she helps you work your way from the fastest, simplest, freshest recipes to immensely satisfying main dishes that you'll have a hard time believing are raw. A definitive list of ingredients, tools, techniques, and sources make raw food a snap, while information-packed sidebars introduce the world's most powerful super­foods, from kombucha tea to chia seeds. And Sarma is refreshingly honest and real as she describes her personal breakthroughs—and struggles—living on raw foods.

Whether you're snacking on the run, having a quiet dinner at home, or throwing a festive cocktail party, eating raw food makes you feel alive. Filled with sensuous, sexy, and energizing food, this book is sure to enrich your life, whether you're a carnivorous epicure or a raw-foods junkie.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

This follow-up to Raw Food/ Real World offers 100 new recipes inspired by the New York City restaurant Pure Food and Wine, where Melngailis is a partner and executive chef. The restaurant is swanky and the book is irreverent (there's even a photo of the author smoking)-it's hardly a paean to an obsessively ascetic raw lifestyle. But the recipes are legit: at once sophisticated and rigorously raw, they range from quick and easy milks, juices and items from Pure Food and Wine's "family meal" (that's the staff meal, in non-restaurant speak) to intriguing dishes off the restaurant menu. Baby fennel and truffle-cream tarts; beet ravioli with pine nuts and goat cheese; pumpkin gnocchi with walnut cream sauce, spiced pumpkin seeds and crispy sage; and vanilla panna cotta with tarragon-peach sauce all have gourmet appeal well beyond those already committed to the raw food movement. And nonpreachy primers on ingredients and techniques used in raw preparations make the book accessible and usable for a wider audience than might typically go for a raw foods cookbook-if cookbook is even the right term for a volume of vegan recipes in which nothing is heated over 118 degrees Fahrenheit.

Library Journal

Pure Food and Wine is Melngailis's sophisticated vegan raw food restaurant in Manhattan's Gramercy Park neighborhood. Her first book, Raw Food/Real World, coauthored with then-partner Matthew Kenney, introduces readers to a raw food diet, with recipes from the newly opened restaurant; here are more recipes and tips (along with more than enough photographs of Melngailis in various poses). Buy for demand.

“‘Raw’ and ‘vegetarian’ are not adjectives usually associated with haute cuisine, but at Pure Food and Wine, as if by magic, such ingredients are turned into exquisite and exotically delicious offerings.”

    Get the book! ;)

    I'll admit that I have not yet been able to dive in and do the things I want to do sense I received this book. However, I still love it! It is so interesting just to read. When I first got the book I took it to work with me and read it like a "pleasure-read" on my breaks. I was just learning about the raw movement and this book help me very much. It helped me to calm down and not feel like I had to jump in and go all Raw day #1. It teaches many principles of the raw food diet that you may not learn from writers who have been eating this way for years and are completely used to the idea and have been for some time! And my favorite fun-fact from Living Raw Food: coconut is GOOD for me whether it is in the form of oil, water, or meat doesn't mater! It's good! I was overjoyed to learn that your metabolism burns through coconut fat before your body even gets the chance to store it in unbecoming locations of your anatomy!!! Get the book, your love it!

    WOW

    I love to create and cooking is a passion of mine. This book has opened a whole new world up for me to create and enjoy healthy options for me and my family. I have enjoyed so far the smoothie section and cannot wait to get a dehydrator and try the desserts. This book is a fun informative read. I would reccomend to all. I plan to buy more of Sarma's books.
