Remember the smell of cinnamon, vanilla and spices filling the air as Christmas cookies baked in your house when you were a child? You can still get that magic even if you are a raw foodie.
Local chef Christa Emrick is leading a class in raw cookie making at her home on the Northeast Side at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 2.
On the menu are cookies made with a dehydrator and others using a food processor.
"Learn how to prepare cookies from truffles to bars (using) nuts, seeds, avocados, squash," she says. "Be surprised. I'm positive that you'll love the different flavors. ... Since we have lots to prepare in the relatively short time period, there'll be no Intro to Raw Foods Q&A; we'll go right into starting the chopping, blending, folding, molding of refined sugar-free, dairy-free and soy-free desserts."
The class is filling up fast, but a few slots are available. The cost of the class is $75 a person before Nov. 22.
