A Taste of RAW in Australia: Brad’s Visit to ‘Botanical Cuisine’

March 18th, 2013

Brad’s all about making connections and getting to know like-minded people in the raw food world.  Before he headed over to Melbourne, we found out about a place there called Botanical Cuisine, and just knew he had to pay it a visit!  The company is actually comprised of three separate components.  The first is Botanical Cuisine, a line of “gourmet organic sustainable raw vegan foods,” the second is the Academy, which offers raw food classes and workshops, and the third is Nettle, their pop up dining venture.  We reached out to them, and Eileen Sims, the wonderful woman who manages all of their media, was so welcoming and enthusiastic about Brad’s visit.

The two of them set up a time to meet at Botanical Cuisine and Eileen showed Brad around and let him try some of their delicious products!  As you can see from the photos, the space is absolutely gorgeous and you can tell there is just a fantastic and incredibly talented group of people behind this venture.  Omid Jaffari, the Founder and Creative Director has a particularly fascinating story and view on raw food.  We are all so in love with this place, and the only thing that we’re disliking right now is the fact that it’s not close to us here in the states!  Hm, maybe we need to convince them to open the next Botanical Cuisine here…

Brad said the Tiramisu and Black Forest Gateau were divine.  We’re not sure about you, but our mouths are watering just looking at it!
