I haven't done a giveaway all MoFo, so I think it's about time. I have another Judita Wignall book to share: Raw and Simple. In this volume, Judita offers more tips on the benefits of the raw diet, how to get yourself set up in the kitchen and great recipes.
I decided to try out Her Meat and Cheese Pierogies (pg. 132). It has several components, most of which can be made ahead of time. I made the "meat filling" the "cheese filling" and Creme Faiche ahead of time. When I got home later in the day, all I had to do was thinly slice turnips for the wrappers and cut up some chives for garnish. Honestly, I thought the creme fraiche was an unnecessary addition. I actually thought the balance of flavors was better without it.
This book, like her first one is full of beautiful pictures. She offers very handy nutritional advice. What I love about this book is that the recipes are truly simple. It makes raw less scary for those who feel a little intimidated about how to get started.
