About the book
Cook it Raw tells the story of an exciting collection of avant garde chefs who come together to create unique dining experiences that explore and question social, cultural and environmental issues. Held initially in Copenhagen to mark the 2009 climate change summit the first ‘Raw’ dinner challenged the chefs to examine the issue of sustainability. As the events have developed so too have the issues, themes and general philosophy of the group. Winter and the question of creativity (Collio-Italy), the Wilderness and culinary comradeship (Lapland) and tradition and the artisan (Iskikawa-Japan) have all been explored on the plate by the likes of Rene Redzepi, Albert Adria, Alex Atala, Daniel Patterson, Magnus Nilsson, Inaki Aizparte, Massimo Bottura and Claude Bosi.

Normally reserved for a select number of diners this book reveals for the very first time the ‘Raw’ collective’s philosophy and creative endeavours. With contributions from leading food writers and ‘Raw’ supporters such as Antony Bourdain, Jeffrey Steingarten and Andrea Petrini; plus, over 400 behind-the-scenes images of the events and an inspiring collection of the chefs’ own ‘Raw’ recipes, notes and anecdotes - Cook it Raw is an exclusive window into the world’s most progressive culinary collective.



In The Press
'For the most ardent food lover comes a fulfilling companion called Cook it Raw - Phaidon's beautiful, sideways look at cooking. The large book records the four Cook it Raw events - conducted somewhere remote in Denmark, Italy, Finland and Japan with some of the best chefs in the world (such as Noma's Rene Redzepi and Momofuku's David Chang). Their mission is to create dishes made with the ingredients available to them in their surroundings. Free from the constraints of their kitchen the results range from failure to the orgasmic, but what binds them all is that common love and respect for what grows around us. Utterly spellbinding.'
