I can't tell you how excited I am to find out that my favorite raw food chef Matthew Kenney has come to Los Angeles! He has opened a Raw Food Academy and will be opening a restaurant in Santa Monica, California. I really thought I was going to have to go to one of his restaurants in Chicago the next time I was there. Maybe one day I will be able to attend the Academy. He is the one that got me started on techniques and ideas about raw food. His book Raw Food Real World was the first raw food cook book I really got into for raw cooking. This cook book was the first prize I gave away for the first giveaway I posted. I am really just beside myself.
My raw foodie friends and I can't wait to make it over to his restaurant in Santa Monica when it opens. I believe it will be opening later this month. Check out this ARTICLE.
