Tarla who? Tarla Dalal has been India’s best selling cookery author over 2 decades. She has written a over 50 titles and boy, does she like it cooked! That's why the squad was happy to hear that Tarla was open and ready for some zest in her life. We even heard her proclaim, "I never knew raw-food could be like this!"
Our winning recipes? Thai Coconut Celery Soup, Hemp-Spring Salad with Coconut Curry Dressing and a Raw Chocolate Smoothie.
We can see it now - Tarla Dalal and We Like It Raw bring raw-food to the land of 1 billion people strong! Well, we are getting a bit ahead of ourselves. Before we do anything we have to work on bringing home 1st Place.
The article titled "Raw-food fervor starting to sprout" contained a photo (see right) of Nature's First Law founders, David Wolfe and Thor Bazler, aka Stephen Arlin. The photo, seemingly normal, has become the hottest topic of discussion over at the rawfood.com forums.
So hot in fact, that it has been reported that a few rawfood.com forum users have been banned for commenting on Thor weight. True or not, the attention has initiated a response from Thor himself.
If we're loosing you, the question at hand is - What the heck is Thor Bazler eating?

*The We Like It Raw Squad will definitely be there in full force bringing you the best in raw-food coverage.
Not sure how this missed our radar, however iVillage.com has a great little featured on "A day in the life of a woman who likes it raw."
The interview features Danielle Reda, an equities trader from NYC.
"For the last year, Danielle's been following a diet that includes eating primarily raw foods, called the Natalia Rose Program. Here, she lets iVillage readers in on what eating raw foods is really like."
Our favorite interview questions/responses?
We have a gut feeling that author Natalia Rose is going to be one prominent faces of Raw-Food 2.0*. She has a certain Sex In The City classiness that appeals to the hipsters and an intelligence that commands attention from serious health enthusiast as well.
The Raw Food Detox Diet, Natalia's second book, came out in May 2005 and since then Natalia has been bringing a lot traffic to the conversation of raw-food.

More on Natalia Rose
*Raw-food 2.0 is the second coming of the raw-food movement. Instead of hippies, natural hygienist, communal living & wheat grass, think peak performance, supermodels, suburbia & super-foods.
Since this raw-spot has come so highly recommended from our San Fran corespondent Sandeep, we didn't waste much time getting from the airport to our table.
Almost everything on the menu is raw. There are a few cooked grains and hot teas, but if you are a raw enthusiast, it stills feels like being a kid in a candy store.
The Run Down: Priced well, wholesome environment (hippyish), super friendly staff, and laid back San Fran mentality.
What We Noticed: Community tables, quick service, to-go refrigerator with raw-goodies, abundant love notes & creative messages,
Needs Improvement: Everything we tried amazing here, with one exception, the bowl of cereal.
