I was really surprised at all of the complex foods with high soaking and dehydration times. With "everyday" raw I was looking for more quick meals. I think this will discourage some people away from raw food. Then again, if you are already a raw foodist and have a dehydrator, then you might love this book. As for me, I'm just experimenting with adding more raw food to my diet and this didn't do much for me.
Nice presentation, lots of great photos. But the recipes have way too much prep to be everyday raw. I think the title is misleading. I don't have a dehydrator so a good portion of his recipes are out. I also don't like the large quantities of nuts/oil and maple syrup/agave, that are predominate throughout the book.
Exploring the world of raw eating. I don't take everything seriously (because I don't plan to go completely raw), but this book gave me some ideas on what to use as substitutes for my semi-vegan diet. I actually don't have a specific diet, there are just a lot of "I don't eat this because of this reason" situations I get into when I try to plan grocery lists and meals. Everyday Raw had creative recipes for juicing, smoothies, salads, and dressings (it had other recipes obviously, but I was only ...more
It's a good book for picking up ideas but some recipes are more complex and time consuming. It is better suited for someone already adapting the lifestyle and can a lot a bit more time into food preparation.
The recipes LOOKED delicious! Beautiful pictures, the way a cookbook should look. However, most of the recipes had some SERIOUS prep time, (like we're talking days in advance) that discouraged me from trying most of them. This is not the cookbook for busy people who want to whip up a healthy, great tasting meal in a reasonable amount of time. Felt the title was misleading in that regard.

Update: Just looked at Matthew Kenney's other books, and it looks like he has an Everyday Raw EXPRESS book th

This is a unique cookbook, and although I m not quite sure if it s my style, but there are a lot of good ideas for a vegetarian/vegan in here. While I may not use this cookbook, it certainly opens my eyes to new foods. There are a number of sprouted grains, types of sauces, and ways to prepare ingredients I never knew existed! I am curious about the use of a dehydrater (which appears to replace an oven in some cases).

I'm dubious about raw food. Cooking kills bacteria, and breaks down vegetable matter to make it more digestible. It also degrades harmful chemicals like thiocyanate, which blocks iodine uptake by the thyroid. Thiocyanate, a precurser of cyanide, is present in raw almonds, and the latter is a staple of of the raw food diet. Thiocyanate is also present in several other raw vegetables. Nonetheless, the recipes are interesting.
I find myself using this book a lot, and really do find the recipes reasonable for everyday food prep. Some Raw cookbooks have amazing recipes, but you find yourself rarely making them because they are so complicated and expensive. This, along with Ani's Raw food kitchen are my two go-to daily books.
lots of great recipes very agave dependent for the sweets.. they are delicious but if avoiding agave then maybe not the book for you. Great savory recipes though!!!
Great book - I love the recipes, especially the smoothies! Easy to read. Kenney goes a little overboard with his used of young thai coconut, but overall, good stuff.
Really great, Raw made simple shown not to be just juice and flax. His resturant 105 degrees is a good place to stop and talk to him and pick up a copy.
library book.

This book I want on my bookshelf - great instructions and pictures for almost everything. i have made a few things from it already...
He's got some great ideas, but he depends too much on maple syrup and agave syrup. There are, however, some things I will definitely use.

Got this for Christmas and am looking forward to trying some of these recipes. Definitely excited about the prospect of raw ice cream.

The recipes in this book look great, but I haven't had a change to test any! Review withheld until I can check it out again.

Reading through this book, I found most of the recipes appealing to my tastes. Can't wait to try them all out.
inspiring pictures, some fun ideas, good resource that I will be testing recipes from this summer.
It is so hard to find vegan recipes that also correspond with the Blood Type Diet :(
This is going to be fun. Raw food is perfect summer food.
Great resource for raw food cooking
