Hey everyone! My name is Rory and I’m a former CT native, born and grew up in West Haven. I moved to PA to do an organic farming internship at the Fulton Center for Sustainable Living where I not only learned a lot of the hands on experience of farming but I also met the girl of my dreams! Not a bad deal eh? I got into raw foods about two years ago and after learning a lot I’ve eased comfortably into the 100% raw lifestyle and I’m loving it! I was certified in raw and living foods prep by Jody Allen (an amazing raw food chef and teacher with over ten years experience, check out her work and beautiful recipes not to mention classes at Loving Life Cafe) and it was such a great experience!
When I’m not busy being a food geek … I like to read (especially DIY stuff and about spirituality), LOVE music! Anything from Dave Mathews to DJ Shadow, They Might Be Giants, Angels and Airwaves, Motion City Soundtrack, Danger Doom, Unkle, Death Cab for Cutie and waaaaaay to many more to type out! I enjoy movies of all sorts from cheezy horror flicks to documentaries, and even romantic comedies (thanks for dragging me kickin’ and screaming into this wonderful genre, Amanda!). I enjoy stand up comedy especially Eddie Izzard and George Carlin (miss ya man, thanks for all the laughter and busted guts). I love going for walks, hikes and hittin’ the Wii Fit! I try to find time for my other passion; building and creating stuff (hopefully a lovely lil’ strawbale house someday!). I haven’t lost my passion for organic farming, although I’ve steered my life in a different direction now. I still look forward to the day when I can create a small homestead Permaculture food system for me and my family! Most of all I love doing all these things and more with my lovely wife and daughter! My wifes’ handy work can be seen in the design of my page (and painstakingly corrected grammar!) and the filming and editing of my raw-food recipe videos. Thanks for all your hard work and for bringing out all sorts of stuff in me that’ll never make it to the final video edits! *laughing* I’d also like to say Hi to our wonderful daughter Isabel! Rock on and when are you coming out with your next raw-food video?? Much love to everyone checking out my work and passions and all my friends and family everywhere!
This interview took a surprising turn for me when I found out a few minutes before that Elaina’s son had been diagnosed with Leukemia. We spoke quite a bit about that and how she dealt with it and that her ex-husband is not raw and the choices made and still being made. Fascinating and open interview.
What’s been happening?
Are you still back on the West Coast?
What’s the name of your new restaurant and when is it opening?
Whatever happened with your dehydrator?
You don’t seem to hang out much in the “raw community” but go about your own business…
What do you eat now?
How does Dennis feel about starting a new restaurant?
When’s your new book coming out and what’s it about?
Join us and catch up with one of the leading raw food advocates in the world!
Since she is a mom, I asked some of the following questions:
How did you get started with Raw?
Were you raw when you had your children?
How were the births?
You say “predominantly” Raw ~ what does that mean?
Let’s talk about cacao ~
Why do some people have issues with cacao?
I know you sell superfoods yet, What do you think of the divisiveness between those who tend to eat simply ~ just raw and those who are promoting super foods almost to the exclusivity of fresh picked?
How do you feel about the trend many formerly raw vegans are pursuing with eating raw animal products?

In this interview we talk about Sarma’s beginnings, how she got interested in raw; her background and education in the culinary arts. I asked Sarma what she would tell someone who wanted to open their own restaurant and if she’s planning on opening more. We chatted about her “One Lucky Duck” website and the currently high cost of organics.
I also asked about the use of maple syrup, wine and sake in some of their recipes and what alternatives might be for non-drinkers. (Of course, there are so many choices of things to drink, drink something else). This just reminded me how people get stuck on things like wanting to eat raw potatoes. There are so many other options, why get stuck on one thing?
So, enjoy the interview, purchase the book and support Rawkin Radio please.
I’ve been trying to get Fred to join me here on Rawkin’ Radio for quite some time. When I began, I was told he wasn’t doing interviews. Lucky for us, he’s back in the limelight. He also has a new book and dvd out. About Dr. Fred Bisci:
Dr. Fred Bisci has a Ph.D. in Nutritional Science. Fred, as he prefers to be called, has had a pioneering and active practice in New York City for over forty years. He has worked with over 35,000 people all over the world with numerous health issues by helping them change their eating and drinking lifestyles through his Real, Fresh Food approach. His outlook is unique. He looks at biochemical interrelationships, rather than a simple dietary or nutritional standpoint. This biochemical appreciation of how the multiple variables work in the human body are directly related to a lifestyle of what is left out and what is put in. Fred has developed the INTERMEDIATE LEVEL MENU which is the core feature for creating a Healthy Lifestyle Program. His program helps you name your current program and meets you “where you’re at”. Fred empowers you to set healthier personal parameters through eating and drinking various combinations of food as you commit to a Healthy Lifestyle Program. Fred’s main foundation built from his devotion to helping others, combined with his raw food lifestyle for over forty years, has revealed the intimate relationship of real food and the body’s God-given ability to always seek health.
HAD to ask Paul about his wife Andrea’s pregnancy; home-birth, food program, exercise and more. Then we got to talking about his new book, “The Daylight Diet” which will be up on this site when it’s available on Amazon. We spoke about what prompted him to write it; how to deal with hunger at night; raw junk food; emotional eating, water, what kind?
This is another interview that was done before Rawkin Radio came into being, just under two years ago. My first interview with Matt Monarch.
Why would a young, single bachelor change to a raw food lifestyle? After five years of eating a 100% raw food diet, Matt was inspired to write a book called Raw Spirit. He wanted to share information that he thought needed to be out there, reflecting in particular on some of the physical challenges of going raw, along with the amazing shifts he experienced on the spiritual level with this lifestyle. Raw Spirit has become one of the best-selling raw books available: people appreciate Matt’s honest approach and his willingness to discuss aspects of being raw that often go unmentioned.
Raw Model Delightful interview running longer than usual. He (and I) had thoughts on permaculture and how the people of this nation need to transition to taking more responsibility for their food and their health; homeschooling; eating fats and what kind, training.. and more. We spoke about his food program; why and how he transitioned to raw; how to BE raw living in cold country, his blog/sites and where he’s going and what he’s doing. I really loved this line: “Nature’s a buffet”. Yes, it is. You’ll enjoy this.
