View Full Version : Raw recipe book still useful without Dehydrator?
09-09-2004, 09:14 AM
Hi everyone, I am thinking of ordering the book but I am concerned if most of the recipes require a dehydrator. I have an oven that the lowest temp is 50 degrees celsius which I believe is about 138 farenheit and therefor according to some sources will still kill the enzymes. I tried making essene bread in it a few weeks ago at the low temp but it really didn't do much and I had to turn the temp up before it would change at all. I haven't tried making crackers or pizza bread or anything else in the oven yet but I assume that it would probably be the same result. So, I am looking for a book that will have many recipes where a dehydrator is not needed. Currently I just have one raw recipe book by Juliano which has been great but I am looking for something new. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Nomi Shannon's Book, "The Raw Gourmet" is one of my favorites, especially for beginners. It is the one I direct all of my "Newbie" clients to because it is simple, forthright, honest and the recipes are delicious.

Okay cool, thanks guys. Yes I was talking about getting Alissa's book. I have right now the book "Raw - The UNcook Book" by Juliano which has been a great help to me. It has a good mix of really simple easy recipes and complicated gourmet ones in it as well. I was interested in Alissa's book because all of the wonderful things I have heard about it. Also I like that it has a chart (I think?) for food combining which I am interested in but don't currently know much about. I am glad to hear that Alissa's book has many recipes in it which don't require a dehydrator. So the only thing I am wondering about now is if I get the book will it have mostly the same or similar recipes in it as the book I have now by Juliano. I am sure it is not the same but if it is really similar then I don't know if there is much point to getting it. Thanks for your advice and input both of you! I will certainly check out those books you mentioned, they sound like they would be really helpful!
Oh yeah, there are a lot of recipes in Alissa's book that dont require a dehydrator. I really have found her book to be the best out there. The recipes are so incredibly great tasting and most of them are really so easy. Some take only 5-10 minutes to make. There are some longer ones, but even those are easy, as you dont have to get complicated ingredients like in juliano's book.
I would recommend her book over any others out there.

Thanks so much for your reply Pam! I do love Juliano's book but it does call for complicated or hard to get ingredients such as sun dried lime or certain spices etc so it makes some of the recipes harder to do. It's good to know that Alissa's book seems like it calls for more simple ingredients. I have heard so many great things about Alissa's book and DVD, I think I'm definately going to get it pretty soon as soon as I can get the mula. Thanks again!
