From 1998 to 99, Brian was Executive Chef and co-owner of Organica: the Living Cuisine, located in San Francisco, CA. Organica was unique being that it was one of the first gourmet raw living restaurants in the world. It was Raw, Vegan and Organic (Wild or Biodynamic). The restaurant was definitely ahead of its time, as you will find characteristic of Brian.

Chef Be*Live placed #1 as Favorite Gourmet Raw Chef in the only international raw food contest the Best of Raw 2010 and also placed high in 2008 and 2009. He considers himself a “transitional” gourmet raw chef, specializing in creating raw living cuisine that tastes superb thereby helping make people’s first experience with raw living foods equal to many of their cooked favorites. Believing that most individuals need a good tasting experience to transition into eating more fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, he has encouraged a multitude of people to discover a healthier diet through flavorful raw living plant based cuisine.
