Finished Fundamentals and Essentials of raw food this week. Seven days of lectures, demos, hands-on prep, recipe development, knife skills and glorious taste testing. I ate so much yet somehow managed to lose a pound. Bonus! A few photos from the past week:
The Mendocino coast is crazy beautiful. The whales are migrating this time of year. If you wait long enough you can see water spouts and tails flapping in the distance.
My room, and yes, that's my sock monkey. What?
My view of the ocean.
The school is housed in an old building with its own cafe, bookstore and marketplace.
