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. You'll sample everything along the way.

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.
