Chef Richard At Rose's Restaurant Supply ...

We stop to pick up some truffle scoops before the Chocolate Mastery class since we had cancelled the class and decided on a party instead so he didn't bring his.

Two amazing persistent students demanded a private lesson and paid upwards for it, which for some reason prompted five more to sign up over the weekend at the Raw & Living Spirit Retreat ... Which makes for some very happy times at the Rawprincess Studio this morning! :-)

Rose's is in the industrial district off Water Street on SE Clay and SE 2nd Avenues.

Matcha For Cancer? What's Wrong With This Picture ...

Can you tell which matcha was $88/lb (at Whole Foods) and which was $66/lb (at People's food)?

Incidentally, a colleague who beat breast cancer said her acupuncturist has her taking two rounded teaspoons a day of green matcha powder for the high antioxidant factors in preventing a recurrence.

The darker green powder is the People's Food matcha. Just $22 less per pound. Hmm.

 "Look into Gabrielle's (Chavez) eyes and ask her what she thinks of my chocolate..." 

As I approached Gabrielle in her kitchen at the organic land and garden in Oregon City and looked deeply into her eyes. I asked her what she thinks of Richard Hemsley's chocolate. 

"He's a master." She smiled knowingly and looked away shyly.

"I like his better than my own actually, and I don't usually say that. He took the time and spent thousands of dollars on a mastery course.  Most raw chocolatiers haven't bothered to do that. It means every batch turns out perfect every time."

Hemsley is a dynamic teacher and founder of Synergy Chefs.

Open Letter to Kacper: Big Huge Hat Tip to Mr Matt Monarch

Okay so here's the deal. The webinar link will likely go away soon due to the sensitive nature of the information and deep and potent transformative action ... soooo once that happens follow the Monarch link I've inserted as post script. (I've also included Kacper link via his name below) Bliss~cindy

Thank you Kacper,

I'm so glad these webinars are happening and I appreciate so much your spirit of service to planetary healing and personal transformation.

I've been trying to explain to some of my most astute wellness friends about A.C. but due to time constraints and a general overall feebleness with ability to convey the information, I often failed in this regard.

Your webinars greatly illuminate the importance of A.C. and far-reaching implications.



P.S. - Huge Hat-Tip to Matt Monarch for his selfless service to humanity.

Editors Note: Here is the "story" incidentally gleaned from many newsletters coming in. Author unknown.

A man (we'll call him Mr. S to preserve
his privacy) , was walking along the Sea
shore some 40 years ago.

He noticed something peculiar.

There was a huge tree growing out of a
rock on the sea shore, where nothing else
would normally grow.

Out of a rock next to the ocean.  With 0
access to nutrients, minerals, and barely
any fresh water. 

Tree's need a lot of nutrients and they
don't grow in desert conditions very well,
especially surrounded by salt water... he wondered what on Earth was happening
to make this tree grow.

Logically... he assumed there must be something
up with this rock...

He spent the next few decades studying all
these "strange" rocks out of which plants
grew in the worst conditions.

What he found out was startling, and his
discovery is now starting to change the world.

He found earth's deepest cleansing secret,
which detoxifies and re-mineralizes water
and aids life on this planet like nothing else.

It's likely without this, our planet wouldn't
look the way it does.

It has the potential to turn cesspools into
"fountains of youth", reverse calcification,
and remove the deadliest poisons, like mercury
and fluoride, right out of your body.

Don't miss this, Kacper is taking it down soon:

Looking For You In All This?: A Recipe For That

Yes, you are correct. This is your day to reclaim your rightful vigor. Greens in your bowl or blender or juicer.
If you're at all like me, I quickly feel the positive affects just moments after drinking a fresh green juice.
But when I consistently have at least two heads of greens perday (or more, of course) my energy and appearance really dramatically improve.
So, if you clicked looking for another recipe, I confess I'm gearing up to massively upgrade my recipe and blog posts here at Rawprincess Studio.
But if you're just looking for some inspiration, ease, and hope, then feast your eyes on a very simple green garden salad.
All I put on it was olive oil, lemon juice, It's Alive bulk seeds, nutritional yeast, sea salt and a bit of minced garlic and jalapeno.
Please do enjoy your plants at hand and toss in a bowl or blender or juicer. It all contributes to the very best YOU ever!

A Five-Star Day At Rawprincess: Plus, Creamy Mango-Crumb Cake

Cindy Cummins, owner of Rawprincess Studios demonstrates Romaine Wraps for Grand Opening Guests July 30, 2011
Hey, we had a great open house at Rawprincess Studio / Skylight Massage. My new space is in the Goose Hollow neighborhood of downtown Portland, Oregon. It's just about 2/10 of a mile from the Sacajawea statue up at Washington Park. I love that she was the only woman, a Shoshone Indian, leading all white men to safety through the continent's wild. Sacagawea taught the men how to gather nuts, berries and other edible plants previously unknown to them. She did so much more to help that expedition. Did she have any choice?

I walk up there in the morning to take heart. It's women who have the power to heal our families with the foods we serve up. As we said a prayer together in blessing the Rawprincess Studio, I gently reminded us all the land we are standing upon is Native land and we must be grateful ...

The site I linked to above has info on how Sacajawea was captured and later sold into slavery or won in a bet. A brave woman who was strong in the face of what she must do.

To keep abreast of current berries, nuts and edible plants in banquet form, be sure you check out "LivingRawPDX" on meetup dot com and join so you can be notified of potlucks and suppers which happen all month long! I had my event listed here .

Some samples of reviews: Cindy's new space is so full of light and fresh air! She is a great Hostess, made yummy, easy food! And gave us massages too! THANKS!--Judith B.

Ani Phyo's recipe "Raspberry Fudge Ganache Cake" was relied upon from memory.
More review love: "The Open House was wonderful! Cindy treated us all with her gracious loving spirit, her culinary skills and her amazing healing hands. Love your new home and's unique and colorful and full of your grace! I hope we adequately blessed it." --Angela R.

I appreciated my guests so much! They each brought me their kind, participating presence AND I got some great GREEEEN things too--such as a REAL banana plant and black-eyed Susans (plants AND the $$ kind too!) I loved demo'ing easy gourmet raw wraps, smoothie and desserts. Thank you for coming and for your nice reviews. I do love my space. It was great to be living my dream and doing hands-on demos. I even got to play marimba and the singing bowl ... Thanks again everyone, a special thanks goes out to A.M. and David, Judith, Angela, Marilyn and Tashi!
