My experience with learning, preparing, and enjoying Raw Food began in Sept. 2005 at my dear friend, neighbour & instructor’s home, once a week in Christine Ringer’s kitchen.
I learned to make Almond Mylk. This came in handy when I developed a disease restricting my intake of milk. Since I loved almonds, it was my first choice, second was Brown Rice milk.
I focused on the recipes in my binder from Christine and tried to duplicate them. L’il Nuggets, & Cole Slaw with the Dressing with nutmylk, mustard, maple syrup, sesame seeds and garlic. The Sprout Salad was refreshing; my taste buds were excited at the real taste of nutrition.
Each week after class, we sampled the meal; except it was all so delicious, we forgot to sample and ate more. Christine was so patient with us. After the meal, she gave us dessert: Velvety Chocolate Mousse is truly delicious. Another favourite is Tantalizing Truffles, & Hawaiian Pie. A good and crunchy dessert is Banana Almond Ice Cream & Wafers.
The Pizza with cheese, tomato sauce & marinated mushrooms was a huge hit. I made it and my grandchildren ate the whole thing. After that I made sure I made two, like the recipe says.
I surprised a group of friends with Guacamole on Rosemary Pepper Crackers. They dove in and when I told them Christine had taught this in her class, they all wanted to join.
Her initial Menu had ‘Pumpkin Seed Cheese with Rosemary Pepper Crackers’ which was fantastic, but I took all the recipes and used them in a variety of ways.
I can’t say enough about Christine’s talents in the Living Raw Food Classes. My taste buds jump for joy, every time I use her recipe book.Nancy Bennett
Christine’s recipes are one of a kind! Her knowledge of raw food and her skill at preparing delicious, healthy food is inspiring. I use her recipes every day and I am so excited that she is starting this new venture so that I can have her inspiration and amazing recipes right there for me every day. I can’t say enough about Christine and her gift as a gourmet chef and raw food teacher and coach!Margaret R.
