Raw in Ten Minutes.
People interested in raw, organic cuisine will enjoy a book by entrepreneur and raw food chef Bryan Au called Raw in Ten Minutes, with its cover featuring a dozen photographs of the author's colorful creations. Au is the founder of Pa-Raw-Dise, an organic raw food and ecology company in California, and his mission is to increase awareness of raw, organic, gourmet cuisine and its beneficial effects for the human body and for the environment.
The book includes recipes for appetizers, soups, dressings, entrees, desserts, and smoothies, all of which can be prepared in a short time for $10 or less. Many mimic familiar dishes, such as Pancakes, 'Clam' Chowder, Tacos, Pasta Alfredo, Pad Thai, Shepherd's Pie, Nuggets with BBQ Sauce, Sloppy Joes, Mango Cheesecake, Baklava, Banana Cream Pie, and Triple Layer Chocolate Cake. Aus recipes are detailed but easy to follow. He also offers many tips and bits of valuable information throughout the book.
I met Bryan Au at a book convention, where he offered free samples of his recipes. He is a warm and ingratiating personality who I'm sure will be successful in his several business pursuits. I recommend his book to anyone who wishes to experience living (raw) foods. As the author states, "This food is the natural fountain of youth, to ignite your spirit and re-energize your soul!"
