Learn that raw food can be not only healthy but totally delicious with this creative short course with Peggy Beer from Eldertree, a local business specialising in fermented and raw foods. We will make some fabulous raw savoury dishes and then share the joy of eating them together!
Foods are classified as raw if the heating temperature does not exceed 45C, as it does not destroy the enzymes in the food.
You will learn how to prepare plant based raw food with fresh foods (some will be slightly warmed up). We will aim to use local and organic ingredients where possible.
Whether you are interested in a completely raw diet or just want to get to know a different way to be creative with food, this workshop teaches you how to prepare plant based raw savoury dishes which we will enjoy eating together.
We will make:
- Marinated Mushroom soup – a creamy soup with marinated mushrooms and other veggies.
- Savoury Onion ‘Bread’ – a raw gluten free bread recipe that makes all other breads envious and reminds me of rye bread with its flavour. Delicious with soups or as a sandwich. This recipe can also be used to make your own wraps and crackers.
- Tomato and Spinach Quiche – whilst this recipe does not taste exactly like its cooked counterpart it still surprises with its fresh taste and its lovely creamy cashew cheese filling.
- Filled Peppers – fresh peppers filled with homemade freshly prepared pesto.
* ingredients may vary slightly according to availability
Peggy will give a short introduction about the backgrounds of a raw diet and then get straight into the practical elements. Please bring your own knife, chopping board and scales. Peggy will provide all the ingredients. Some parts of the meal will be pre-prepared with a dehydrator. The recipes and full instructions will be provided as hand-outs from the tutor, to take home.
For food allergies please contact Peggy beforehand and she will try and accommodate your requests.
