Home Study Online — What Would You Like To Learn?

POSTED OCTOBER 2, 2010

Raw Chef class

[Update: Since I wrote this post, I have produced home study programs available online and on DVD.]

In my last post, I asked if you’d like me to do an online version of my home study course, and I got an overwhelming response … over 140 comments and still going!

The general theme of the comments was that you really would like me to offer this, so I am going to.

I also got some really great ideas on some of those comments as to what extra you’d like to see in that online version of my DVD course.

I’d really like more of those ideas …

So in the comments below, please leave me some more suggestions as to what you’d would like me to include in this course.

The course is essentially going to be an online version of what’s in the DVDs, but the beauty of online is that I can add extra videos as we go — both for the online members, and the buyers of the DVDs to access too.

So I’m open to helping you in any way I can as far as extra information is concerned.

Please go ahead and leave me some ideas/requests/wishlists below, and I’ll see what I can do.

    Do you have any recipes for raw burger buns. I would love to be able to make burgers, without having to use flat bread.

    I would like to know if you can make ice cream cones out of either puréed banana dehydrated and rolled into a cone then dried until crisp like an ice cream cone, or alternatively add some of your date sweetener, to provide tat sugar crispness.

    For all of us very new to raw, we would love how to change the recipes. So many of them say like 145 degrees. If we want to stay raw and do it at 115 degrees, how much longer would we need to plan on doing in dehydrator? Things like that.

    Dear Russel, I subcribe to your Ezine and Your new Everyday Raw. I also bought your on line Raw chef course. I’m new to cooking raw and it would be very helpful to me, and I think to others starting out, if you could show how you organize your refrigerator and how you balance your diet. I end up throwing away a lot of food because I don’t know how to gauge amounts to buy, or don’t know enough different recipes to round out my diet. I love your recipes, but I end up eating the same dishes for days,because I have too much produce in the fridge. You say sometimes in your recipes that you have a glass of juice with the dish. Maybe you could mention what you drink with the recipes, sort of like pairing wine with a good dish(in the old days). Thanks again for the great tasting recipes. You have a great gift. Julie

      Hi Julia,

      Thanks so much for your kind comments :)

      There’s some great ideas there, I’ll consider those for future updates and actually, I think they would make great blog posts, especially the fridge idea.

    Same for me! I live too far to have access  to a complete on-line course. I am searching on the Internet, but I just find unreliable courses, and very expensive.

      Hi Virginie, when you say you live too far to have access to an online course, do you mean you live ‘out in the wilderness’ to get internet access?

      And so are you looking for an actual course that you can go to in person?

      Hi Beverly, thanks for your enthusiasm :)

      This post was actually written in 2010, and since then I have created several online courses.

      You can find my flagship course here: http://www.therawchef.com/homestudy.html which includes an option to do it online.

    Hi Russell
     
    i have just come across your facebook page and very interested to have a chat or catch up with, if possible.
     
    I was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer in March this year. My treatment has finished but I cannot have hormone drugs as I fell into a 20% negative receptor. I declined taking part in a clinical trial as I did not want to introduce more chemicals into my body every day for the next 2 years.
    so since then I am researching the natural food as medicine approach alongside theraputic treatments.
    At a first glance it would appear that the techniques you are working with would have a positive
    effect on people following cancer, or at any stage of their life in terms of preventation, living longer etc. i have already introduced key elements to my diet with raw veg, fruit, minerals, etc as smoothies etc and changing my diet the more I research.
     
    I would welcome your thoughts on any research you have carried out for disease, cures etc, and look forward to hearing from you.
     
    Many thanks Sandra Jones

      Hi Sandra,

      Thanks for sharing your situation.

      Research on curing disease is outside of my area of expertise, so I would definitely checkout the work of Dr Brian Clement over at the Hippocrates Institute in Florida.

      Good luck!

      Your research may have taken you to this, but if not check out a movie on Netflix called The Gerson Miracle. It is also a book. For many years this therapy has helped thousands of people rid their bodies of cancer

    I would like you to demonstrate making bread. When I make it
    Im not sure if the texture is good and I get mixed results.
    Also would love to see more cakes especially layer cakes, low fat cakes and substitutions of ingredients as I do not use oat flour
    because in the process of making it it gets heated above raw standards.  Thanks, Dena

    Dear Russel,

    For the record you are of the most well-rounded, knowledgable and truly wonderful Chef’s I have ever had the pleasure of learning from…your food is delicious, textures are great and finally you tackle things that a lot of chef’s will not tackle…A VARIETY of local dishes to different areas. Many chef’s will focus on using many varieties of ethnic foods that arent widely available.  You are on a road that is offering a larger variety of more available ingredient recipes, while keeping it simple and fun.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

    I am a Raw Chef as well, and would love to learn further on knife skills, more modern decorative techniques for plating, would LOVE to learn how to get my cheeses to work better, and some more raw bread recipes. Finally, a more inexpensive way to go about raw foods, substitutes for unavailable young coconuts and other ethnic foods.

     I live in Israel, and we can’t get green coconut here at all. so many raw recipes use this nut, and I would really like to have suggestion as to what to use as substitute. we can get dried coconut power, so maybe there is adaptations with using that instead?

      There’s no single ingredient that you can substitute for young coconut as it’s used for different reasons in different recipes.

      In some recipes where it’s used to make things pliable I would suggest trying a little flax with zucchini.  That works in things like wraps.

      Dried coconut powder will probably not work as it’s unlikely to give that gelatinous feel.

     I would love to see some sessions dedicated to raw ALKALINE meals. I have felt great results eating this way, but am finding it difficult to be creative and keep my meals at 80%+ alkaline.

    How to keep it simple yet interesting on a day to day basis. Eating raw is amazing, but so time consuming and some of the ingredients can only be sourced either online or at specialist health shops. I live an hour away from such places and can’t just pop down the local shops for things like nut butters, special oils or spices, coconuts, irish moss etc. So a list of keep-in essentials would be good for simple raw meals. Love your recipes Russell but i haven’t yet managed to get together the ingredients for the ones i really want to do after trailing several of my nearest towns!

    I would love to learn how to organize my kitchen and very busy life to be able to eat raw most of the time. I tried a 100% raw diet for a year, best time of my eating life ever. I lost weight, I had boundless energy, I looked good, felt good… but I could not sustain it due to my extremely busy an inconsistent schedule. So any help or suggestions about how to set up my kitchen and how to think about food prep that is quick healthy, raw and tasty would be very appreciated.

    i make some pretty decent tasting and healthy raw meals.

    I have yet, however, to be able to figure out how to ‘swirl’ for presentation purposes. i make a nice tasting and thick raw soup or two but can’t seem to get an added milk or creme to swirl throug the thicker blended ingredients. It always falls to the side of gets blended up and stays one color.

    Thanks.
