Archive for the ‘Raw Chocolate Mousse’ Category

I was so impressed with the student’s demos yesterday!  They all put a lot of effort into becoming great teachers and did an amazing job!  Today they have their big test and then it’s graduation, complete with graduation cake – Chocolate Mousse Tart with Strawberry Coulis.  Yum!

Some of our students are staying on for Gourmet Chef Certification for the next three weeks, and some are leaving us to go out into the world and spread the joy of raw foods.  One of our  students,  Alan White, is  doing both.

Chef and Instructor Graduate Alan White

He is dedicated to becoming a teacher, and he’s planning to go home and put his teacher training to use, then return for our Gourmet Raw Food Chef certification program. I’m inspired by his drive and ambition.  Alan has worked on several farms, including a coffee bean and macadamia nut farm in Hawaii.  He will spend some time honing the  chef skills he learned at Living Light while teaching his own classes, and then finish “gourmet” and the Dina’s Science of Raw Food Nutrition Series.  He was very inspired by Jennifer Cornbleet and plans to follow in her footsteps!  I wish him the best of luck in the future!

The student catered meal was a total success, with a large turnout of 42 people, including quite a few guests.

The food was great (menu below)  and the event ran  smoothly.  It was such a fun night!  I attended the dinner as a guest, and was able to see it from a completely new perspective.  Many Living Light employees attended, along with some family members of the  students.  Friends and family are always invited to the catered meal, but some of our students travel from far away, and their friends and family aren’t able to make the trip. It’s always exciting to have new visitors for the event.

We had a surprise guest, Kimmy Everett, who is a Lifemax Independent Distributor.  She is in town to speak to the students on  Saturday morning about Lifemax’s product MILA and was invited by Cherie.

Student Dawn Bitterman had her son and daughter-in-law as guests.  They’ll be in town for the weekend, visiting from Martinez, California in order to support “Mom”.  They’re actually the reason why Dawn is here at school, since her son got into raw foods and inspired the whole family.  Dawn says that once she tasted raw chocolate mousse she was hooked, and now she’s becoming a raw chef!

It was a beautiful weekend in Fort Bragg, bright, sunny, and surprisingly warm for January, and spirits were bright when guests tasted our delicious menu:
