WHERE HAS GONE RAW GONE?

POST #982
SOMETHING HAS GONE RAWNG
Admittedly, I had not visited GoneRaw.com in quite a while (okay, maybe a year or so), but I was surprised and disheartened to find the place in a shambles today when I clicked through and old link on an old, inactive blog, looking for Chef Landria, who seems to have disappeared.  On the home page, there was some kind of code disturbance, which just got worse when I clicked on RECIPES at the top of the page.  

Ah, but help is on the way, if you want to go see this famous old repository for raw recipes of all kinds.

Go to the bottom of the page, and find where it says RECIPES –GONE RAW – that link is healthy (at least as of a few minutes ago)  You can page through the recipes, which seem to be intact. 

My advice – if you want to avail yourself of a number of wonderful recipes from people who have posted over the years, who may or may not still be active, QUICK! Go there and look through all of the recipes which sound like something you might want to eat or prepare for someone else.  (Who knows how long this site will remain – it has apparently been abandoned, and there have been no postings in the past year or so).

PARTY FOOD – What I took to Jose’s party on Saturday night

My friend Jose gives the best parties… lots of people, lots of music, and I don’t feel too weird being older than a lot of them. He has learned from me the art of “potluck”, and has stopped slaving away in his huge kitchen before a party – he just opens the doors to all invitees, and they come in bearing food and their libations of choice. I like my food raw (duh), so, if I prepare what I like, I am sure to have something yummy to eat, and I may have a conversation topic off and on throughout the night!

I made coleslaw (I thought that might be something new for foreigners– and it was!!!) All I do for coleslaw is toss cabbage into the food processor with some onion, and process it into oblivion– still identifiable pieces but almost not! (I am a lazy chewer), then add cayenne and mayonnaise. My mayonnaise of choice is my cashew mayonnaise https://prettysmartrawfoodideas.wordpress.com/2007/09/01/cashew-mayonnaise/

I put enough mayonnaise just to moisten — I don’t like my coleslaw soupy or gloppy. This is more of a Southern coleslaw, I think… it seems that in New York City, really sweet coleslaw is the order of the day (if you like it sweet, by all means add your sweetener of choice)

I also made, on request, my corn crackers and my sunflower seed crackers https://prettysmartrawfoodideas.wordpress.com/2008/03/06/my-two-favorite-cracker-recipes/. i didn”t have time to make cheez for the crackers, but someone had made a fabulous guacamole, so it worked out. Interestingly, because of the fine grind of my coleslaw, a lot of people put it on the crackers, to happy effect. I was happy that everyone ate all the food I had brought (even thought that meant that I would have to make more crackers soon. I was also intensely pleased that all those people from so many countries liked my coleslaw, because one of my ESL classes is having a graduation party this Friday, and I now feel confident about taking coleslaw. I think I will take some of my crackers, too (although I hate to share them – they are so good for lunch!)
