Raw Food certainly has come a long way and no more so was that on display than last night at The Plant in Brooklyn, NY. I was fortunate enough to be a part of the weekly themed dinners, this week inspired by the films of Stanley Kubrick.
My thanks and admiration go out to Matthew Kenney and his team, particularly his Head Chef, Kristen Rayes who created the menu and masterminded the realisation of it on the night.
Here's a few photos of the event...
