meeting like-minded people is the nicest thing about these gatherings. debi (the woman who made the delicious raw apple sauce) has healed many health issues with raw food. i learned so much talking to her! she's a personal chef in the tom's river area who also hosts nutritional workshops and cooking classes. she can be contacted at recipeswithperks at gmail dot com.
the show stopper for me was the edible flowers. how cute and clever are those radish 'shrooms? there's also mache (aka lamb's lettuce), nasturtiums, borage, broccoli and onion flowers in the mix. i foresee a very pretty salad in our future!=)
