Hi Meet Up members,

I have had TWO requests in the last week for people needing either an event catered raw, or a special raw cake made, with about five days or less for each request. I have been able to respond with an informal list of folks, but want to have a raw chef catering list that is accurate and complete.

I would like to post a list as a "File" on our Meet Up website for everyone to access, but I'd like to make it a better File first before I do that. For those of you on this list, can you please edit or add whatever contact information or description of your services you might like to have and then email it back to me and I can re-upload it with your new info.? Please limit the description to under 110 words. Also including some information about your catering pricing structure would be helpful.

Also, if you'd like to be added onto this list, please do the same! :)

LAST - if you are a raw chef, please know that the Raw Spirit Festival is coming to Live Oak campground in May! They need to choose a chef for the event, AND there will be many opportunities to have a vendor booth at the event to sell breakfast and lunch foods, would LOVE if you were all there. I recommend that you start planning as early as possible if you'd like to attend, the Raw Spirit Fesival was WONDERFUL in Sedona this year! :)

Best wishes,
Heather

Spiritland Bistro (www.spiritlandbistro.com) Organic Global Cuisine 230 E Victoria St . Santa Barbara CA . [masked]-7759. Spiritland Bistro is our only entirely organic restaurant in town with a good selection of raw dishes. The newest owner of Spiritland Bistro has also very generously created the Tuesday Night for Healing lecture series, which has given an opportunity for our members to enjoy listening to many local raw foods speakers.

Dianne Bess teaches raw foods classes and is well known in the Santa Barbara Raw Foods community. She has given a talk on raw foods at Spiritland Bistro and compleed a contract with the Spiritland Bistro in creating a wonderfull raw food lunch menu. Dianne and her husband, Jim, have attended some of our potlucks and have been a delightful part of our group. (Dianne, can you please complete this for best contact info.?)

Other, out of town chefs:

Mary - of Mary's Secret Garden WONDERFUL restaurant in Ventura would likely be able to put something special together for you from her restaurant with enough lead time. Arranging pick up of the food from Ventura might be the greatest challenge though. maryssecretgarden.net, 100 S Fir St, Ventura, CA 93001, (805)[masked]
