Raw restaurant -- Boston

Hello everyone, including New Englanders!

I just got my most recent newsletter from Raw New England Community and there is a special announcement in it which should excite many of us.

"A Raw Restaurant in Boston to be opened by Alissa Cohen -- Grezzo (meaning Raw in Italian) opening in the North End the end of the year or early January. Yahoo!!!!!"

It is interesting that there is not much discussion about Alissa's latest project at RFT.

Erawtica, do you know anything about what Alissa is up to in Beantown? If so, can you spill some "raw" beans about it?

Looking forward to hearing more about it!

Wayne

Correction, Jozzie!

It is a smoothie, not a dessert! That is what I owe you for doing a wonderful favor for me.

The problem is that Alissa is not serving smoothies at the moment as I don't see them on her menu. If no smoothies are available, then I will get you a slice or two of Alissa's fudge cake!

GREZZO CHOCOLATE FUDGE CAKE

For the base:
1 c. walnuts
1 c. pecans
1 c. dates, pitted
1/4 c. raw cacao powder

For the topping:
1/2 c. cacao powder
1/4 c. coconut oil
1/4 c. agave nectar

Prepare the base: Grind walnuts and pecans in a food processor until fine. Add the dates and cacao powder and blend until smooth and chocolatey. Remove from the food processor and, with your hands, form into four squares.

To assemble: Mix topping ingredients by hand in a small bowl. When smooth, pour the sauce on top of the base.

Refrigerate the cakes until firm.

Serves 4.

This thread was started before Alissa made the announcement... she comes in on post 19 I think: http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/showthrea...t=33948&page=2. (I have the thread going backwards so you may have to play a bit with it).

This is exciting news. When I visit Boston, I stay at the Mariner's House located next door to Paul Revere's house in the North End. I wonder if it's located on the "Raw" Freedom Trail, which is the route Revere rode on his most famous ride.
I found a woman near Montpelier, VT who instructs in raw cuisine, and hosts raw pot lucks. Can't wait to get started.
Thanks for the info. Rawbie.

peace,
misotrue
