Dine and listen to Matt and Janabai Amsden (Bio below) Q&A following the talk.
I had the opportunity to see and speak with them the last time they were in the area as they have family here and really enjoyed their talk about their raw/living lifestyle and experiences opening raw food restaurants.
Author of RAWvolution: Gourmet Living Cuisine (published by Harper Collins), and the forthcoming follow-up, The RAWvolution Continues, to be published by Simon & Schuster in July of 2013, Matt Amsden has established himself as one of the world's premier raw chefs. Matt's company RAWvolution was the first of its kind, delivering prepared raw meals in Los Angeles and eventually throughout the entire United States. Matt began eating a diet of exclusively raw foods virtually overnight after hearing an interview with author David Wolfe on the Howard Stern show in 1998. Matt, along with his wife Janabai, have since opened raw cafés in both Santa Monica, California and New York City, and have shared their talent with thousands including Alicia Silverstone, Cher, Susan Sarandon and super-model Carol Alt.

    What a blessing! I'm so thankful to know others with the same perspective on food. The Amsden's were a very nice family and Present Moment served superb culinary art for your taste buds, as usual.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
