Spurred by the culinary imagination and Rod Rotondi’s 16 years of experience, Leaf Organics instills students with knowledge of raw-food prep in practical, hands-on classes. The Leaf Academy’s team of instructors, helmed by Chef Rod, arms brains with the skills necessary to turn kitchens into raw food havens and ovens into shoe racks. Pupils enjoy healthful indulgences after a Just Desserts I class, in which nascent unbakers create and nibble bites of coconut macaroon balls and lemon cookies. Hand-forged strawberry ice cream fills bowls with a treat comparable in texture and flavor to dairy-laden ice cream without the guilt of stealing a calf’s breakfast. The Raw Foods Fundamentals session elucidates the essentials involved in creating an uncooked feast, including sprouting, dehydrating, and kale-to-gold alchemy. Utensils click merrily against work surfaces, yielding a spread of entrees, sides, soups, and other everyday dishes, which fuel toasts and happy chatter.
