Do join us for a very special meetup on February 20th with Jennifer Cornbleet demoing her delicious chocolate cherry brownies and pineapple upside down cake. 2/20 meetup at 6:30 p.m. in Berkeley (1970 Chestnut St)
I am also really excited about the dinner we will be having.
We have a new chef named Paul Robbins recommended by Heather who is enthusiastic about preparing the food for this event. (He's not new to food preparation- He's been practicing his art for 20 years) He’s been classically trained in the culinary arts and has been applying his knowledge and talent to raw food since he’s embarked on this path 1-1/2 years ago. He’s a very dedicated raw food enthusiast, having lost a huge amount of weight and reversed his diabetes and other health issues. He will be serving us Spring Rolls with Asian miso sauce and Pad Thai with young coconut noodles and almond chili sauce.
The cost of the meal is $12.50- Which is an incredible deal. So if you'd like the dinner, please include that when you RSVP. The total will be $22.50. If you've purchased a meetup membership- you only need to pay $12.50 for the dinner. This will be a very special event so try to make it. We need to have the reservations in for the dinner by 2/17. It's important so that he knows how much to prepare.

Romantic Raw Desserts with Jennifer Cornbleet

You can stay vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, or just plain health-conscious and still eat delicious cakes, pies, compotes, crumbles, custards, sorbets, ice creams, cookies, and candies. Join Jennifer for this special Valentine’s Day presentation, as she shares her favorite no-bake recipes from her book, Raw For Dessert. Includes tastes of Chocolate Cherry Brownies and Pineapple Upside Down Cake!
It was Jennifer's recipe of Chocolate Cherry Brownies that someone brought to a pot luck and turned out to be such a surprise I had to find out who made. As soon as I found out whose recipe it was I couldn't wait to have her make some for all of you.
And, even though just being there will be enough- Jennifer is raffling off two of her books!
Jennifer will be giving away a free copy of both her Raw For Dessert and Raw Food Made Easy books at this event!
