“We’ve come to realize that interest in sugar-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free recipes is capturing a mainstream audience.” says Living Light founder and director Cherie Soria. “It’s time to teach the public how to make quick and easy gourmet raw vegan recipes without sacrificing flavor and enjoyment.”
The Living Light Chef Showcase: Hot Chefs, Cool Kitchen, is slated for August 26-28. Twelve gourmet raw food chefs, including the winner of the 5 in 5 Hot Raw Chef Video Recipe Contest, will demonstrate a total of 24 gourmet raw vegan recipes for three full days. The showcase will stream online following the live event, featuring a diverse group of chefs from as far away as Iceland. Filmed with state of the art camera close-ups in a professional teaching classroom at the school, the step-by-step demos will highlight specialized techniques for learning how to create dishes that look and taste remarkably like familiar gourmet cooked recipes.
Living Light International has four eco-friendly businesses on the Mendocino coast of Northern California: Living Light Culinary Arts Institute, Living Light Café, Living Light Marketplace, and Living Light Inn. The Living Light Chef Showcase takes place every fourth weekend in August.
