Interview with Raw Guru and Cacao Contest

The time seems to fly by in the summer, and once again I'm behind in posting, but wanted to take a moment to share a newsy update.

I just finished an interview with Alex from Raw Guru. Some of the questions include: how I got started, what my daily food staples are, my view on fasting, my spiritual connection with raw, my current projects, the inspiration behind my dessert creations, and I give one of my favorite ice cream recipes (which I posted a while back on my blog).

I'm excited to be a contestant in the upcoming Best of Raw Cacao Contest which will be held as part of the Living Light Chef Showcase August 26-29.

If you can't make it to the event, you can watch it live! How cool is that?! So I won't actually be at the event, as I will be in Maine visiting relatives, however I will be sending my chocolate entry via UPS. Please keep your fingers crossed that they make it safely 🙂 I'll be sending 25 pieces, packed in ice. As for my chocolate creation, you'll have to stay tuned as I'm not revealing just yet  - but I can tell you that I'm entering the "truffle/bar/treat" category.
Just a few days later, I'll arrived at Living Light for food styling and photography course, so I'm really excited about that!

I'll keep you posted on the cacao contest. I hope you'll pop over and check out all the action!

    What a great interview! I loved reading more about you and found your predictions about the raw food movement interesting. I definitely think there should be more of emphasis on eating locally- it's more sustainable a way of eating and is how we were intended to eat, I think. xxx

    You know I have to agree about what you said about where the Raw Food Movement is going, I've never been a raw food angel to be honest. I love cooked broccoli, quinoa, tomatoes, kale etc and as long as its local and organic thats Okay. Oooh and I prefer cooked beans to sprouted anyday.<br /><br />In the end everyone has to do right by them I guess. Great article.
