The course was open to raw food newbies, as well as more seasoned raw foodists.

Each session was 12 hours, spanning the course of two days. Cost for the course was $575 per person. More classes will be offered in the near future.

A raw foods diet is the practice of eating only uncooked and unprocessed (raw) foods. Most raw foodists eat only fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, fish, meat and non-pasteurized dairy products. To be considered “raw,” a food must not be cooked above 115 degrees Fahrenheit. Some raw foodists also follow a vegan diet, avoiding fish, meat and dairy, while consuming only plant-based foods.
Following M.A.K.E.’s recent raw foods cooking course, Massage School San Diego has published a list of holiday menu suggestions for those following a raw foods diet.
