I have released four recipe books so far:

The Best of the Sunny Raw Kitchen
The Best of Raw Freedom Community
Delightfully Raw and
Deliciously Raw

Incredibly tasty smoothies, creamy and comforting warm soups, sexy salads, delicious nut cheezes, satisfying entrees and scrumptious guilt-free desserts...

Healthy food never tasted so good!

Introducing My New Recipe Book: Delightfully Raw



I am beyond excited to now be able to present my third and latest book:

  Delightfully Raw: Delectable Recipes from Carmella's Sunny Raw Kitchen

I have to say that I feel this is undoubtedly the most comprehensive work I've published so far. In addition to addressing a number of topics specific to the raw lifestyle and food preparation, Delightfully Raw features 96 of my most delectable culinary creations. While you may recognize recipes published on this blog and in my previous two books, The Best of The Sunny Raw Kitchen and The Best of Raw Freedom Community, the majority are either completely new and exclusive recipes or improved versions. This book will appeal to anyone interested in a healthier diet, regardless of their level of knowledge and experience. From easy one-step everyday dishes to more elaborate and involved gourmet entrees and layered cakes, it offers something for every occasion.

Since Delightfully Raw will not only be available in electronic format but also in hard copy, it has meant dedicated work, careful detail and a generous dose of TLC. I had a lot of fun and learning in the process - a fact that you will hopefully find reflected in its pages. I am extremely pleased with the finished result; 168 pages of tried and true recipes, appetizing color photos, and a great deal of useful information relevant to the raw journey.

In a (raw) nutshell, here's what you can expect to find in Delightfully Raw:
  •  A table of contents
  • Sections on the health benefits of raw food, my personal health story and our approach to effectively changing one's diet
  • A list and description of ingredients frequently used in raw food preparation
  • A thorough guide on how to best equip your raw kitchen
  • An in-depth discussion of various techniques, such as sprouting, dehydrating, raw dessert making, working with Irish moss, and the preparation of various cultured foods and beverages like sauerkraut, fermented nut cheezes, kombucha and rejuvelac
  • Gorgeous mouthwatering photos for nearly every recipe
  • Detailed and clear recipe instructions
    • Helpful 'uncooking' tips
    • An index to simplify navigation
    • A list of raw resources

    5. I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Although I've never posted before, I so appreciate all your hard work and generosity reaching out to the raw food community. Your new book will help me maintain a healthy diet, even on those days I don't feel like eating so well. It has provided me with new inspiration, and I look forward to trying the recipes!!

    6. Your latest book looks amazing! I'm just wondering, which of your books uses the least amount of dehydration (I don't have a dehydrator). Everything you make looks delicious :)

    7. Thanks guys!

      I hope you enjoy the new book as much as I will; I can't wait to be able to browse through some of my fave recipes in a single place! ;-)

      Tanya,
      I would say that Delightfully Raw would be your best bet. There's only 10 recipes that really require a dehydrator, then a few others where it's totally optional. You could even recreate the pizzas, subbing the crusts with ezekiel tortillas or store-bought raw crackers.

    8. I'm back to say that every recipe I've tried from this book has been amazing!! I've especially loved the hemp dressing, the caramel tarts, kelp noodles and veggies in peanut sauce, and the onion bread. If you are considering this purchase, I promise you won't be disappointed.

    13. which of your three books would you recommend for a busy mom with 5 kids who has only been raw for about 6 weeks?

      ReplyDelete

      1. I'm thinking that perhaps Deliciously Raw as it only features recipes that can be made quickly with the help of a blender. Or if you'd like a wider repertoire, Delightfully Raw is hard to beat for its thoroughness and yummy recipes.

    14. I can't figure out how to get the sliding scale price. When I try to pay with Paypal it tells me the price is $21.00. Help?
