Did you see the beautiful article on Nut Milks & Cheeses in this month's Edible East Bay? It was written by our meet up member Jillian Steinberger and highlighted all sorts of great things happening with raw vegan cheese here on our side of the Bay. This article is so beautiful, and it highlights many of our meet-up members including me. Thank you Jillian!
If you didn't read the article yet, you can find it on newstands in front of Whole Foods, Cafe Gratitude Berkeley and more. A copy is here too: http://www.rawbayarea.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Edible-East-Bay-08-2011.pdf
If you are inspired to make cheeses yourself, I will teach you how in a class this Thursday. I also will teach Mexican Fiesta this Saturday. Both classes are in Oakland. This is the last appearance for both of these classes in 2011, so catch them now. Details below.
Thanks so much,

Mexican food is what many people crave when they want something hearty,
cheesy, and comforting. And who doesn't love to munch on chips and salsa
in front of a video? Unfortunately, traditional Mexican cuisine is
notorious for being high in calories, greasy, and short on fresh
veggies. But once you learn the raw food preparation techniques in this
class, you'll be able to make a truly healthy as well as delicious Latin
American Fiesta for yourself and your friends.
In Mexican Fiesta you will learn:
* How to use a dehydrator to make thin, crispy chips out of flax seeds and vegetables--perfect with guacamole.
* Which knife skills to use to dice up delicious homemade salsa.
* How to use a dehydrator to make flexible wraps out of vegetables--the perfect tortilla for enchiladas.
* How to use shredded cabbage to replace rice for a lighter version of Mexican rice.
* How to make a beautiful mango fruit tart with a coconut crust--delicious either as a dessert or as a light meal in itself.
