Raw Food Cuisine Class – desserts

February 27, 2013

Last night was the final class in the series held at Mimi’s place in NW1; a beautiful bijoux appartment, suitable for our yoga and food prep sessions. 

We practiced Restorative hip-opening yoga positions, supported by blocks. bolsters, heavy beanbags, to make us feel more comfortable, as much as possible. This is Mimi’s philosophy, that we should not feel pain but should feel comfortable. Surprisingly, it is so, sitting on a large bolster or lying with bean-bags by my hips; I feel supported and held. Everyone received the same individual level of attention which she delivers with ease and makes us feel even more awake and focused in our practice, whether lying, seated or feet up the wall (in the case of the participant who had cycled across town for 1.5 hrs to reach there). Floating on air, we finished and went into the kitchen where I had lain our the dessert ingredients, sheets and recipes.

I gave a brief explanation on combining ingredients and dessert principles to make basic and more gourmet desserts, followed by a series of 4 recipes: Carrot Cake Pie, Chocolate Whip, Mint Choc-Chip Ice Cream and Apple and Vanilla Cream.

We found ourselves sharing news of other upcoming classes in London, the ethics of eggs and replacements in recipes when avoiding the cruel practice, equipment – the best for each task and ingredients, local UK foods over imported tropical foods…. we over-ran; how to compress this into 2hrs {Q}….

We made amazing desserts, so light and fresh. 

Glowing participant feedback: 

“It’s so healthy; you have a good conscience” M. 

“The class was very instructive and very enjoyable and was further enhanced with a Yoga Restorative class from Mimi. Theresa is an excellent teacher, an excellent cook and gave a very good introduction tho the world of Raw cooking. ” Alisdair
