Once in a while, you stumble upon someone who's taste buds are perfectly aligned with yours. This is the case for me with Anna Tipps, owner of TheRawTable.com
, which happens to be one of my absolute favorite raw sites too.
I have yet to make one of her recipes that does not hit the mark for me BIG TIME. Just try her Chocolate
or Lemon Chewies
, her Creamy Avo Curry Soup, her Mock "Chicken" Salad
or her Yummy Apple Cobbler
and you'll see what I mean! But besides being an amazing raw chef, a raw and living food instructor and a mama of four, Anna (aka Maraw) is also the editor and publisher of the beautiful new raw magazine, Purely Delicious
I went snooping behind the scenes to ask Anna a few questions. She generously took some time to answer them in spite of her busy schedule.
Anna, can you tell me a little about your new publication, Purely Delicious
Anna: Purely Delicious
is a celebration of the beauty, tastes, and textures of raw and living foods. We include information on organic gardening, family health issues, nutritional tidbits, book and restaurant reviews, and recipes – lots of purely delicious, purely raw recipes! This coming issue (June), even features an article on raw food nutrition for companion animals!
How did a magazine like PD
Out of my own frustration, really. I have been enjoying a raw food diet for a few years now – creating recipes and sharing them through my web site, TheRawTable.com
, and other places on the web, and even in local “cooking” classes I teach. Over the past year or so, I developed an interest in writing a recipe book. After producing the 2007 raw food calendar, it seemed like a good idea – there was a lot of excitement about that calendar. So my next task was to try and focus my mind on a book – but I was having trouble settling on a specific direction for the book. A quarterly magazine allows for a great deal of flexibility and mobility. It can grow and change with each issue. My goals and objectives are still the same though – developing a mainstream, family-friendly, magazine that provides guidance and information on how to GO RAW!
How often does PD
A: Purely Delicious
prints quarterly: in March, June, September and December. We are also working on a raw food restaurant guide for later in the year, as well as the 2008 wall calendar! Busy, busy, busy!
Just one more question then, as I know you have lots on your plate (pun intended!) Where can one get a copy of PD
The magazine is distributed all over the U.S. (about 40 states now), and we also have subscribers in 8 other countries. Most of the U.S. distribution points are raw food restaurants and health food stores.
Wow! With all of these balls in the air, it's a wonder how Anna manages to get any sleep! lol Oh, and did I mention she's also working on a new site, Radiant H.O.U.N.D.
, about dogs gone raw?
Although Purely Delicious
can be found in many healthy lifestyle businesses across the U.S., individual subscriptions may also be purchased for $25 per year and delivered right to your mailbox.
