Raw Taipei, Workshop III – Gourmet Dinner-in-the-Raw for Ten!

As part of each workshop series, we include one gourmet dinner-in-the-raw event where participants put down their chopping knives and pick up the dinner ones. Adela Stoulilova created a beautiful, four-course dinner for ten lucky people.

For this workshop, we hosted in a wonderful organic store in the heart of Taipei called “SO Fresh” SOFR3SH 太│平│洋│鮮│活. Hilary, who manages the place, is a visionary. She has hydroponic farms which the line the entire length of one wall. She farms her greens on location and the farms also double up as a design aspect of the place. Beyond this, So Fresh hosts workshops for kids, teaching them about growing vegetables and also cooking them.

As our world develops more, kids become less accustomed to knowing their vegetables, let alone knowing how to cook them. What Hilary has done has created a community of educated kids who not only know their their veggies but also take pride in cooking and eating them!

Adela served a rejuvelac cooler with fresh beet juice and honey, an arugula, pear and blue ‘cheese’ salad, and the main was a selection of raw spaghetti (zucchini, carrot) with 3 delicious sauces – a cheese sauce, pesto sauce and tomato sauce. To top the meal off, participants were served an amazing raw raspberry cheesecake and raw truffles. It was wonderful!
