Raw Dream Desserts for Mind, Body, and Soul!
At Sayuri Healing Food Café in Ubud, Bali, one of our guests’ favourite spots is in front of the desserts display. Every day, the kitchen team, inspired by Sayuri Tanaka, internationally renowned raw vegan chef and desserts magician, bring out new raw vegan (and some gluten-free baked) cakes, sweets, and chocolates, made from the most high-vibrational ingredients available and with limitless love and joy.
And so it is with music and coconuts in our hearts that we have created our first week-long Raw Desserts Chef Training! You are a seasoned classical pastry chef, a raw food enthusiast, or right at the start of a journey to a kinder, healthier and more creative lifestyle? We invite you all to join us in our sparkling new Sayuri Healing Food Academy and learn the techniques, specialty ingredients, and tricks of the trade required to create guilt-free, luscious, and ridiculously delicious cakes, pies, and sweets.
In Level 1, you will learn all about natural sweeteners, binders, and healthy fats. You will make raw-vegan layered-cheesecakes, brownies, ice-cream, fruit crumble, tiramisu, banana cream pie and much much more. You will use professional equipment, learn valuable kitchen tips, go on a fun field trip, and work in teams to design and create your very own raw-vegan birthday cake. You will meet like-minded people and have the opportunity to enjoy the magical village of Ubud, Bali.
Come and make sweets that are fast and easy to prepare, contain a full spectrum of good nutrients, antioxidants, and phytonutrients, and provide a boost of good energy and happy and positive vibrations. We eat energy. And we exchange the energy of love through food. If “we are what we eat”, we want to become the love that we eat. We want to become the flowing, shining, and endless love within by eating healthy, nutritious, heart-opening and dare we say, enlightening food.
