Living Foods, Raw and Vegan Cooking Class

I used to work doin' video production stuff up in North Miami next door to The Hit Factory for a dude by the name of David Haylock. When I'd get to the job around 11 every morning, I'd see these rectangle planters with green stuff growing out of em' sittin under the big tree in the circle driveway. Came to find out those were sprouts, Haylock was eating em every day in a salad -- it was part of the raw foods movement.

Those interested in the vegan, raw and living foods lifestyle should take a course on the matter, You'll be able to do so this Sunday, May 24th with Chef Amarylis Guindin and Wheatgrass Man. They're leading a course called "Fundamentals of Living Foods." It's a four- hour class followed by a buffet where you'll get to eat the dishes prepared (the flyer actually says "experience" the foods, hope that's the same as eat).

The class will explore how to make nuts & seeds milk, nut pate, breakfast granolas, juices and smoothies, raw soups, pizzas, pastas, and fresh fruit pies. They'll also teach you how to grow sprouts and wheatgrass.

It's limited to 25 participants. Call Chef Amarylis at 305-914-5317 or Rafael Rodriguez at 786-306-7124 to make your reservation. Cost of class is $85 and it runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, May 24 at Clubroom Cite Condo (2000 North Bayshore Drive).
