View Full Version : Heard of "Raw in 10 Minutes"
09-21-2006, 01:51 PM
I can't think of the author's name at the moment. I am wondering if anyone has heard of the cookbook "Raw in 10 minutes"? If so, would you share your views about the recipes and the prep time.

I was not impressed. I also didn't like a lot of the statements that were made in the book. A tomato covered with ground nuts or something "taste JUST LIKE greasy steak" . He made many, many such types of comments and they are simply not true. Now, was this youthful exuberance?...perhaps. But I did not like his recipes and don't use it. If you go to amazon and check his reviews, you will find many 5 star ratings. beware, for most of those very good reviews...that was the only book reviewed by each person, so I think it is suspect.

I'm looking at it through Amazon.com
seems like so many of the others. I mean most of what I fix takes about that amount of time...

Yes I wasn't to impressed either, I have looked at the book many times but have never used any of the recipes, I asked my husband to get this for me as an Xmas gift thinking i would use it but like I said i never did. Where as with Alissas Book and others I use it and them all the time. I hope this helps.
I never use mine either. I think there are better ones.

Thanks for the feedback. I think I will stick with Alissa's book for now. I haven't even tried any of her recipes yet. I've been eating just basic raw stuff. I have been in the mood to let my creative side roam around in the kitchen. I was really impressed with my lasagna I made the other day and so who knows, I may try to do something a little extra creative a few times a month.

I like Brian's book (search here *at the banana* for other opinions as well) yet, not used it much. I recently found Jennifer Cornbleet's book (don't remember the title yet, search her name on Amazon) and it is GREAT! I've made the desserts mostly. Quick, easy ~ for one or two people. She gives credit to Alissa and others for certain recipes.

Tons of reviews here including many from the author incognito.
I tried the mac and cheese, didn't like (took to raw meeting which nobody liked), and it took over 30 minutes to make.
ITA with Revvell - Jennifer Cornbleet's book is great - many wonderful, simple and quick recipe in there.
I just checked out Rawvolution from the library, another great book I'll be adding to my raw book shelf.

I'm glad I read this post.
I had ordered his book along with Roe's book awhile ago and it hadn't shipped yet. I cancelled it. I don't need another book on my shelf if it isn't usuable.
Thanks everyone for the heads up.
