In the raw-chocolate and vegan-dessert class, up to 20 students converge inside the café and embark on a two-hour culinary tour of gourmet fare devoid of all animal products, wheat, and sugar. Chef Lovena Galyide demonstrates how to craft low-glycemic raw ganache cake and ice-cream sandwiches that delight vegans, raw foodies, and diabetics alike. The desserts use primarily raw organic chocolate, an antioxidant-packed food, and maca, a Mayan food renowned for its ability to enhance romance.
Indigo Food Cafe
At Indigo Food Cafe, vegan chef, café owner, and Ukrainian polyglot Lovena Galyide orients taste buds toward uncooked fruit, nut, and veggie dishes in an effort to jump-start the body's natural healing process. A high tea menu pairs organic, fair-trade teas with bite-size treats including collard rolls, kale chips, and berry cheesecake, and a dinner menu includes collard roll-ups and stuffed portabella burgers. Desserts range from healthy indulgences such as coconut cream pie or lemon goji bars that are also served at breakfast. Lovena also leads classes to help raw foodies bring her café’s nourishing dishes into their own kitchens. During intro classes or more focused sessions on desserts or beauty, Galyide unveils the health benefits and top-hat-decorating potential of figs, coconuts, nettles, and other vitamin-crammed superfoods as her students make and eat kale chips and almond milk and learn to use vital appliances from food processors to dehydrators.
