Peter is a raw food chef, authors and health dducators who has been guiding South Africa on a journey to radiant health, abundant energy, lightness and fun.
Him and his wife, Berryn (Co-Founder of Soaring Free) returned home to South Africa in 2006. A close friend asked them to run a workshop for herself and her housemate teaching them how to prepare healthy food. They invited a small group of people together and presented their first course. This led to the beginning of courses and events around South Africa teaching people about raw & living foods and how to make delicious raw food dishes.
The Superfoods Brand:
They found that many of the Superfoods that they were accustomed to eating abroad were not available in South Africa, especially the raw cacao (chocolate). So, they began to import their favourite superfoods mainly to keep themselves and their friends in good supply. Very soon they were supplying the people on their workshops, then local health shops, markets and specialised delis. They created their company Soaring Free and the Superfoods brand dedicated to sourcing and distributing only the highest quality organic Superfoods we could find. They now have a wide and continuously growing range of Superfoods.
The Rawlicious Recipe Book:
During the first 2 years of running raw food courses the question Peter and Berryn were asked most often was, ‘when are you going to write a book?’ Inspired by the growing number of people embracing the amazing transformative and healing potential of raw and living foods they wrote and created Rawlicious, recipes for radiant health in 2009 – South Africa’s first gourmet raw food recipe book. The recipe book continues to inspire more people to a new way of being and eating and has now been published internationally.
The Rawlicious DVD:
By the end of 2010 a new idea had started to develop. When their friends came over for a meal, most of the time they only started preparing the food when they arrived and, chatting in the kitchen they would assemble a gorgeous array of dishes in less than an hour. This way they had a chance to catch up while they also had the opportunity of getting involved with the food and seeing just how easy and fun making healthy and nutritious food can be. Peter and Berryn asked themselves: How could we share and bring more people into our kitchen in a similar way? The answer in itself was simple too. Let’s bring our kitchen into your kitchen! And so Rawlicious, Elements for Radiant Health, the DVD series was born.
Peter continues to share his experiences and expertise in the field of raw food nutrition via free talks, seminars, courses, workshops and retreats. For more info check out the Courses & Workshops page.
Shop & Webshop:
The Rawlicious Shop & Webshop only stocks products that they would use personally. Achieving radiant health is not about a static formula, it is ever-changing and they are always looking for products that enhance and improve health. Many of the products that they use in their recipe book that may seem unfamiliar are stocked here too. We have done our best to make this webshop as user-friendly as possible.
