Matthew Kenney Culinary

I am so exited to spread the word about the best raw food workshop around. M.A.K.E., Matthew Kenney’s Culinary Institute and Restaurant in Santa Monica CA, has weekend workshops where everyone can learn the basics of raw cuisine (there are also more advanced courses if you know the basics). It is a 2 day course in which you learn everything from opening a coconut to making delicious cocoa truffles!

Our instuctor Michael Vincent was great. He took his time to make sure everyone understood what we were doing. The first day we prepared almond milk, a green smoothie, coconut yogurt, buckwheat granola and a kale-chipotle salad and day 2 was seaweed salad, sesame-cashew dumplings, cocoa truffles and ice cream! Yes! Healthy, plant based, delicious ice cream!

Raw food is not about only eating fruits and vegetables, it is a plant based diet, but Matthew Kenney has creative ways of putting ingredients together to produce amazing meals which are flavorful and healthy.

This course is a huge step into a healthier lifestyle. I recommend this course for everyone, even if you’re not into healthy eating, raw food or veganism, this is a course that will change the way you look at food and what you want in your body. 

Here are some photos I took during the workshop:

Sherbourne, what a lovely surprise!

Chef Keven Lee exceeded my expectations! When he came over to our table and offered to prepare anything I could dream of, I thought he was kidding and although the menu items looked fantastic, I decided to take his word and have him cook something special for me.

I was blown away. All I had to do was tell him my food restrictions and he prepared the most amazing fish dish I have ever had in my whole life! Dairy, meat, poultry and processed ingeredients free! The flavors were amazing!

My friends had a taste of the potato cart and were delighted with it and with all of their dishes as well.

The place is fantastic, discreet, elegant and cool.

It is a MUST!

Can’t wait to go back this weekend!

M Cafe de Chaya

If you want to go to a super healthy and delicious restaurant, this is definitely the one to go to.

A contemporary macrobiotic restaurant, where almost everything on their menu is organic and everything is fresh, healthy and free of harmful chemicals.

Order anything you want from the menu, I’ve tried almost everything and it’s all delicious! The juices are also great.

In LA they have 2 locations

Beverly Hills and Melrose

If you’re in Mexico City I have to recommend Nick San, I always get the green salad, the grilled vegetables and a side of brown rice. The sashimi are quite nice as well.
