A Taste of India in an Extraordinary Place

  • Oct 29, 2011 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Briksha, one of our sponsors, will be giving us another taste of India through his wonderful Indian inspired raw food creations. Raw Indian food is a rare treat and Briksha has mastered the art of it.

When I told him that Indian food was one of the things I missed on a raw food diet, Briksha said that he, himself, has been surprised at how little he misses the cooked food versions because some of his recipes are actually better than the dish that inspired them.

This event will be hosted by Raleigh, one of our members, who has generously offered his beautiful Berkeley Waterfall House for this event. If you haven't been there please try to make it this time! We are blessed to be able to have Briksha's dinner there.

Briksha will also be giving a talk about conscious eating. He says, "Not only what to eat but how to eat is also matters." He spoke at the Raw Expo in Sebastapol this summer about this subject; it's one close to his heart.

Those who came to Briksha's dinners know just how healthy his delicious dishes are. He puts tons of greens in them.

The cost is $24 per person and the limit on this dinner is 21 so do RSVP right away. We are asking that you pay to RSVP so Briksha will know in advance how many are definitely coming.

Three days before the event the price will be raised to $28 if there is space.

As our sponsor, Briksha is generously donating 10% of the proceeds to the meetup.

For those who have purchased memberships ($25 waives all venue fees- which range from $5-7 through February- and you'll get a couple of thank you gifts. E-mail me about this if interested-) I will give you a discount of $2.50. So price for you is $21.50 per dinner.

The dinner will start around 6:00 p.m.

Dinner will include:

  • Masala chai with hemp-hazelnut milk
  • Indian Veggie burger with Plum chutney or Raita soup
  • Rainbow Salad with Curried hemp-tahini dressing
  • Masala Veggie (mock sauté cauliflower/
     zucchini etc)
  • Briksha`s favorite chocolate floating in the Vanilla ice-cream
  • More: Briksha likes to surprise us

    It was nice to see one old friend and meet some new folks, too. Nice to finally have a child-welcoming event to attend.

    How wonderful to discover that you don't have to give up Indian flavors should you decide to go 100% raw.
