My friend Deepika, of Terratree (Sunza crackers), and I assisited Aris onstage at his workshop Fri evening at the Total Health Show. The Total Health Show is my fav one of the year.. esp. as it is the most raw represented. & Deepika is often called on to organize a top raw speaker and workshop. This year she got Aris to come. It was an honor to be assisting him. . The workshop was great.. so much fun. & very well attended. She said the most people since Juliano, 5 or 6 years ago.
I love Aris's thoughts and philosophy on raw, food and life. These are pics of the food onstage that he had to work with. I asked him about an hour before the workshop what he was going to make.. and he told me he would decide that when the time comes.. or something like that. ..very Jamaican laid back, but he was focused and knew his stuff (has a PhD in food science) he weaved through all the different raw philosophies, studies, gurus.. and presented his own, very back to nature, beliefs in a clear, natural and beautiful way. Really, really enjoyed listening to and working with him!
