Fresh: The Ultimate Live-Food Cookbook|
by Sergei Boutenko (Author), Valya Boutenko (Author)
Cookbooks need not – indeed, should not – involve cooking, say the authors of
this authoritative, beautifully illustrated book. And they should know. Sergei
and Vayla Boutenko bring fifteen years’ experience to this collection of
scrumptious, sophisticated recipes and comprehensive guide to the raw life.
Fresh covers the whole range of recipes, including savory dishes, desserts,
fermented foods, drinks, and wild foods. Techniques common to the recipes are
introduced and clearly explained, including an inventory of uncommon fruits and
how to handle and prepare them, as well as an immersion into the five basic
flavors and the herbs, fruits, vegetables, and grains that help chefs bring out
each flavor best. The authors introduce the three stages of adaptation to this
lifestyle and provide a concise review of minimal equipment requirements and
ideal appliance additions for the well-stocked raw kitchen.
