View Full Version : Cooking for 25yrs, uncooking for 9 months
07-02-2005, 07:32 PM
I started cooking when I was 9. I made all my favorites, mac & cheese, brownies and apple pie.
I thought I turned out to be a pretty good cook, even though my other half may not have agreed.
Now I am RAW, I made a raw fry the other day. Awesome. Thank you Rawlioc (spelling?)
I just wonder if I had been making raw recipes for 25 years, would my food taste just as good? I would have much more time to practice my art.
I just hope it doesnt take me another 25 years to get good at making some of the awesome raw food recipes out there. :)
9 months of raw just seems so small in comparison to 25 years of cooking no how.
I really cant get my husband to try any of my recipes now. They are raw.

I also LOVE to cook, bake, experiment. I have not been doing raw very long but am already having alot of fun tinkering with new things! Hope to share some successes soon! Your picture looks yummy! Feel free to share the recipe :rolleyes:

You wrote: "I really cant get my husband to try any of my recipes now. They are raw." grieve not about this - work with what he does eat raw, like a salad, begin to use the greener greens, and a multitude of new things - that's raw.
Try to start him at juices and smoothies and deserts - that's raw. Occassionally (no spell check) add something to the main meal - like a slaw - RawVeganMom does a sweet potato slaw, does he eat mexican, instead of canned refried beans provide him with a raw version - it is your choice to tell him or not before the meal or after. Add a meaty raw pate - an olive mushoom type that has been posted here - it is umm umm good.
Be not discouraged - there is hope, but take it slow and be patient, time changes all things.

My husband cooks for himself. I could never get the hang of cooking Vietnamese food. Therefore, he always cooked for himself. I would just eat whatever he cooked. I wasnt choosey.
The only things that he will eat raw are tomatoes and cucumbers with his meat and rice. We sometimes have basil, cilantro and a bunch of other herbs that go along with Vietnamese food.
Sweet lips, I dont care to change the way he eats, it is just that I often have left overs that he wont even try. That is all.
Thanks, I will post the recipe later. We are going to his family's house for a party. Yeah

That looked good. There's a raw Vietnamese restaurant in Orange County, CA called Au Lac. Well, it's vegetarian, but they also offer raw dishes.

I have read that somewhere about that Vietnamese restaurant. However, I dont think that I will ever be getting to California anytime soon.
Sweet Lips: its alright for the assumption. I am the wife. But most of the chefts in the world are Men. So my husband tells me its because they have better taste buds. They can taste the food he says. (Rolling my eyes)
