The Los Alamos Co-op is cooking up some classes that can teach the average person how to eat healthy and cook a variety of inexpensive, alternative recipes.
Casey Greenling has been special events caterer for about eight years. He specializes in raw and vegan cooking for festivals and retreats all around the United States.
Greenling lent his expertise on Aug. 20 with the first class of the series, Raw Dessert Alchemy and taught how to use cacao, the raw version of chocolate. In his first class, Greenling taught participants how to use some of the best superfoods using raw preparation techniques, which maintain the maximum energetic potential and taste. Greenling will teach another class on cookies and pies using raw preparation on Sept. 10.
“I have a passion for food and teaching,” Greenling said. “Food is an art.” He cooks gourmet food that is raw, yet savory.
Regarding healthy dishes, cooking raw can sometimes be time consuming, because Greenling uses a dehydrator rather than baking in the traditional oven. Temperatures are lower so the “cooking” time is slower. “It takes time for the enzymes to break down in a dehydrator,” Greenling said.
