What You'll Do

Raw food devotees argue that even if you start with natural foods, cooking them leeches away the vitamins, enzymes, and minerals that make them so nutritious. With raw food chef Linda Szarkowski, you'll learn how to prepare tasty raw food staples while learning about the health benefits of making raw food a major part of your diet. After a quick primer on knife skills and techniques, Linda creates dishes including almond milk, kale salad, zucchini noodles, and chocolate mousse, ending the lesson with a delicious feast.

Your Host

Linda Szarkowski Linda Szarkowski
Raw Food Chef and Instructor

Raw food expert Linda Szarkowski has come a long way in her culinary journeys. Hailing from North Dakota, she grew up on a meat-and-potatoes diet, slowly making her way through vegetarianism before eventually becoming a vegan. But her culinary transformation didn't stop there. When an experiment with a raw food diet resulted in a 20-pound weight loss, clearer skin, and dramatically boosted energy, Linda was sold. Today, she serves as the owner and a teacher at Green Spirit, a Chicago raw food staple that offers classes and foods for cooking-free lifestyles.


Where You'll Meet

The event will be held at Green Spirit.
