Exploring Raw Food Workshop

Date(s) - 9 Nov 2019
2:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Learn that raw food can not only be 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 a fabulous 4 course menu and then share the joy of eating together!

Foods are classified as raw if the heating temperature does not exceed 45C, as to not destroy the enzymes in the food.

You will learn how to prepare a complete vegan raw menu with fresh raw foods (some will be slightly warmed up). We will aim to use local and organic ingredients where possible. Warming ginger and lemon tea provided too!

Our Menu*

  • Appetizer – Tomatoes, filled with cashew and chive cream
  • Soup – Coconut, Ginger and Carrot soup with raw seed crackers
  • Main course – Thai courgette and sweet potato noodle – vegetable stir fry with Sesame and marinated mushrooms
  • Dessert – Banana pancakes with blackberry sorbet

*Ingredients may change slightly according to availability

The Workshop

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 a raw vegan 4 course menu, which will be prepared together and eaten together.

Peggy will do a short introduction about the backgrounds of a raw diet and then get straight into the practical elements. Please bring your own knifes, cutting boards and storage containers to take any left overs home, if we haven’t finished it all. 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.

If you have any food allergies please contact Peggy beforehand and she will try and accommodate your requests.

Health benefits

A raw food diet is low in calories and high in fibre helping with weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight. Raw foodists have reported that eating a high proportion of raw food makes them feel healthier and boosts energy levels. The high levels of fresh nutrients that are preserved allow the body to prevent and fight diseases, improve digestion and make for a healthy looking skin.
