Saturday 3rd – Sunday 4th October 2015

I have yet to meet anyone as infinitely creative with decadent raw food recipes as Deborah Durrant. Deborah possesses a talent for creating new and incredibly inspired recipes as effortlessly as breathing, and yet to the uninitiated her talent can seem unfathomable. For anyone who is looking to take their raw food recipes to the next level, whether for personal gratification alone (and of course impressing friends and family) or for high-level professional development, then Deborah is one of just a very few people in the UK I would wholeheartedly recommend without hesitation.”
The Raw Food Coach
Introducing the Deliciously Raw Sweet – A 2 Day Weekend Intensive
Sweet is a delicious introductory weekend intensive to developing the skills and technical know-how you need to become a raw desserts and pastry chef.
Running from Saturday 2nd to Sunday 3rd May (inclusive), this training is suitable for anyone who loves raw food and wants to make raw teatime treats and desserts to impress and wow their friends and family or if you already know the basics and want to expand your repertoire and show just how fabulous raw food can really be.
This is hands on training (not a demonstration based class) set in beautiful cookery school overlooking rolling hills where you will have your own workstation and be able to make the dishes I show you and learn how to develop them to suit your own palate.
This is for you if:
- You want to learn how to make deliciously decadent and super healthy raw food desserts to WOW yourself, your friends and family
- You would like to learn to create lusciously light sponges, tantalising tarts and mouth-watering ice-creams, creams and custards.
- You are prepared to invest in learning how to make the most delicious and nutritious food possible
- You want to show friends and family that raw desserts and sweet treats are not just as good as cooked, but far and away superior!
- You simply LOVE all things indulgent, naughty and delicious and can think of nothing better than to spend a weekend making, eating and enjoying the best raw desserts that life has to offer
- You know it’s YOUR time to live the raw food lifestyle of your dreams!
Meet your Trainer
The training will be provided by raw food chef, Deborah Durrant. Deborah trained at the Matthew Kenney Culinary Academy in California and is a Qualified Chef in Advanced Raw and Living Cuisine. Deborah’s courses were shortlisted for the Looking to Cook Best Short Cookery Course in the UK and Ireland 2012 (she missed out to Jamie Oliver who pipped her to the post in her category but she doesn’t mind too much about losing to him). Deborah has always been a real foodie so in 2005, when she wanted to eat a healthy diet, she set about learning how to make raw foods that taste every bit as indulgent, delicious and comforting as any cooked food. Now she knows how to make raw food that tastes so good that you really won’t know that it’s raw.
Deborah is passionate about supporting people who want to change their way of eating to suit them and their lifestyle through training, one-to-one coaching and recipe books. She also offers VIP days for people who would like a completely indulgent foodie experience and would like to learn how to make delicious, decadent and inspirational raw foods. She believes that this is the key to helping people make the switch to healthier choices by finding substitutions which really suit their bodies and their palates too.
She is a member of the International Association of Raw Food Coaches and Teachers, holds a Masters Degree with Merit in Change Skills from the University of Surrey and is a qualified coach. She is also a graduate of Tony Robbins Life Mastery University which included a juice feast and Health Mastery programme.
At the end of the training you will:
- Have the knowledge and technical know-how to make a range of deliciously decadent yet nourishing desserts and sweet treats
- Have learned over 30 different recipes and be able to take them away in a beautiful binder to refer to forever
- Gained valuable knowledge on the purposes of different raw ingredients so you can put together your own raw dessert creations
- Know how to vary the recipes to suit different palates
- Be in no doubt that you can make raw comforting desserts whenever you want to
- WOW your family and friends with a choice of healthy and nourishing desserts for different occasions
- Know what to keep in your raw food desserts pantry, and how best to store it
- Take away your own chocolate cookies, tarts and cakes!
- Receive a Certificate of Achievement for the Deliciously Raw Sweet weekend intensive
I have been to two of Deborah Durrant’s excellent raw classes. Having previously eaten at raw food restaurants across the USA and UK, I knew how strikingly delicious raw food could be but had no idea about how to prepare it. I am not a vegan, or even a vegetarian, but since attending Deborah’s classes I have made raw brownies, yoghurt, various nut “milks”, chocolate bars and an astonishing chocolate mousse – all in my small kitchen and without using traditional cooking methods. All of these were vegan and absolutely delicious.
Deborah is an excellent tutor and I would recommend her classes to anyone who would like to learn or sharpen raw “cooking” skills.”

Deborah is not only teaching us to make DELICIOUS recipes, but we are learning to create our own “signature” recipes… Well she’s showing us how to be a Chef, not only a “cook”! I just LOVED both training DESSERTS & FEAST Count on me for level II!”
I love to cook, eat, entertain and grow things. I’d always thought of ‘raw food’ diets as faddy and probably boring. Deborah’s incredibly accessible and entertaining training has changed my perspective. As well as introducing some key techniques, explaining the benefits and principles, she proved that raw food could be treat rather than torment.
The recipes are easy to follow and the taste luxurious and delicious. I would highly recommend Deborah’s courses to anyone who is interested in adding another string to their culinary bow or explore the health and vitality benefits of raw food.”
