The volunteer-run Raw Vegan Cafe serves up uncooked gluten-free vegan fare, with all profits donated to children suffering from life-threatening illnesses at Hope Children's Hospital. During cooking classes, instructors arm students with the ingredients, equipment, and recipes necessary to swiftly craft nutritious raw dinners and desserts, saving the cost of ordering takeout from a neighbor’s greenhouse. Main courses such as pizza or bagels shirk flames in favor of a dehydrator, the use of which teachers thoroughly detail. Sweeteners reaped from Mother Nature's garden tinge dessert recipes for delicacies such as chocolate macaroons or lemon squares. Patrons fend off food comas and advancing herds of hungry rabbits to query experts about raw vegan diets during a Q&A session that concludes classes, which are held Wednesdays from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

Attendees sculpt cuisine according to the restrictions of a gluten-free, raw vegan diet, with animal-product-free foods never reaching temperatures above 115 degrees and always stored properly. As a result, nourishing enzymes stay locked within tasty vegetables until they're gobbled up by diners or acquitted by the Jolly Green Giant.

Raw Vegan Cafe

The volunteer-run Raw Vegan Cafe serves up uncooked gluten-free vegan fare, donating all its profits to Project Hopeful in Joliet. Appetizers on the trim menu include zucchini wraps and mushrooms that, like a black bear’s armchair, come stuffed with pine nuts and fine spices. Served sans nuts, the café's spaghetti comes smothered in a sun-dried-tomato marinara and can be paired with a custom, fresh-squeezed juice of your own creation.
