    Looks amazing! And congratulations on the opportunity to study at 105degrees. What a great experience!

    Wow…everything looked so delicious! Yum…those rolls looked sooo good!

  3. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Those hand rolls look insane! Very pro looking prep work, impressive!

    Wow. That lasagna looks awesome. I love the colors of everything. That alone would be a reason to go raw. Congratulations on the new found knife skills. Looks like you’re having fun.

    You’re going to be a whole new Amber when you finish this course, with body fueled by all those new veggie experiences. It’s kind of cool, isn’t it? Being in front of your teacher and the others is pushing you to try things you probably wouldn’t otherwise, and surprise! What a fun story. I too, used to dislike sauerkraut (my Dad liked it too), dark green leafys, and I couldn’t even imagine eating kimchee. I enjoy them all now.

    I wonder if recounting each day in a post, and adding the photos, is helping your mind with its organization?

    Those carrots look great. I guess the dice is made by cutting up the batons, and the brunoise (I’ve never heard or seen that word before) is obtained by cutting up the julienne crosswise?

    You have really inspired me. I am strongly considering going there again. I’ve wanted to for awhile now and maybe it’s time. I’d love to learn everything you are doing. You might see me there soon!

    Dayum! Look at you! I would normally hate to say “I told you so” but I think it applies here. You are going to be awesome at this. Fo’ real!

    Such a pretty dice! I made some watermelon rind and carrot kimchee about 6 weeks ago (raw, because I wasn’t about to boil away the good stuff in the rind). Granted, I already love kimchee (and hate sauerkraut!). I think it’s the sourness and the chilis that do it for me….

    The temaki is absolutely gorgeous. I can make a maki roll like an absolute champ (and made some tonight….with cauliflower, even), but when it comes to hand rolls….well, they look more like confused burritos.

    I don’t think there is a single thing in the lasagna that I don’t love to eat. And the colors!! It’s making me absolutely green with envy!

    Wow! Everything looks really good! Those handrolls and that lasagna look super tasty!

    I LOVE kimchee (and sauerkraut) and would like nothing more than to do it myself homemade. I just don’t really know where to begin with all of it… Looks like I gotta get myself a big jar first. 🙂

    I am drooling over that lasagna. The kimchee….not so much – I’m with ya there, sister. The rolls look great, if I could ever get over my perception that nori is going to choke me. (It’s all the fault of my coworker who tried to teach me to eat sushi and insisted I stick an entire California roll in my mouth at once.)

    Wowzers! This looks great! What a wonderful experience!

    I love how your enthusiasm and delight is bursting through your words onto and beyond the page! Keep having a brilliant time, Amber, though who knew you’d have to face so many food dislikes so early on? 😀 I’ve always loved sour pickled things like kimchi, but then again I never had a family member eating sauerkraut as a snack! xo

  13. lauren

    Wowza! That all looks so good.

  14. GirlonRaw

    Loving every second of these posts! Keep em coming. You are inspiring me back to the kitch!

  15. amanda @ Hungry Vegan Traveler

    It’s a mi-RAW-cle! Seriously, those carrots are IMPRESSIVE! Teach me next, okay?

    Sweet Jeebus, all of the colorful food is GORGEOUS. Way to go, you!

  16. Megan @ Healthy Hoggin'

    It’s so exciting to see everything you’re learning at 105 degrees!! I hope I can go there one day, too!

    Everything looks beautiful, and I’m sure it tastes amazing!!

  17. Michelle

    Look at those carrots…YAY!!
    That lasagna looks awesome, and those handrolls…WOW! You have done a great job! What beautiful food….do you get to eat what you have prepared after you are finished? You may have me eating raw after all this. 🙂

  18. Lori

    Oh how I wish I were there with you dicing, rolling, EATING. My goodness everything looks FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!

  19. Tara @ Vegan Piggy

    SERIOUS gorgeousness! Wow I’m so impressed and a little jealous you get to eat all that good food on top of learning how to make it in the first place 🙂 So fun!

  20. rachel

    wow that looks like so much fun! is it fun? you make it sound fun 😀

  21. Ela

    Looks like so much fun. I’m so glad you gave kim chee another go – it’s awesome stuff. This whole experience is going to rock your world, isn’t it?

    Are you exhausted at the end of the day, with all the new things and stimulation?

    I hope you rest well and continue to love every minute.

    Oh. My. Gosh. Those handrolls? A-mazing!!! I wish. SO wish I had one right now in my hand. Curried cauliflower? Are you posting recipes? Um yum!

    And the lasagne? Ditto!! I want to be raw like that… seriously. This is what makes raw delicious.

    Amber, I am loving this!!! 🙂

    Hi Amber,

    QUick question; where the cauliflowers completely raw as well? Feels like it would be too hard to bite..!

  24. dena

    I’m new to your site and loving it!!! 🙂 I was curious as to what the pate looking ingredient that is on the sushi roll?

    Thank you and looking forward to hearing from you.
