testimonial5“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.”

– Karen Knowler, “The Raw Food Coach”, www.therawfoodcoach.com


“Deborah is the Nigella of the raw food world”

– Emma Berry, Beautiful Bakes www.beautiful-bakes.co.uk



“If you’re interested in raw food as a concept, and are curious to find out what it’s all about, I’d recommend Deb’s course as a great introduction – light on lecture  – heavy on experience. Give it a go, you, and your body might like it!”

– Andrew, Artisan Southwest

“Deborah is naturally curious about the taste and texture of great food and this means that everything she makes is delicious first and raw second! She is informative and quietly encouraging – you can go at your own pace and incorporate as much raw as suits without feeling less than perfect if you’re not 100% raw!”

– Katie Venner, Tracebridge Sourdough, Nr Wellington



“I have been involved in food, its cultivation, preparation and cooking of it all my life. Deborah’s culinary ‘raw’ delights have taken my taste buds to a different level. She is an inspiration to flavours and invention of delicious raw dishes and menus. I am delighted that Deborah has chosen Harts Barn Cookery School to showcase and teach Deliciously Raw”

– Yvette Farrell, Head Chef and Chief Executive,
Harts Barn Cookery School


“WOW! What a perfect course! I work as a private chef for a family who are always trying to be healthier and healthier. Raw foods and macrobiotics were suggested as a new direction for me so I scoured the internet trying to find a suitable course. I searched for a long time finding nothing that was practical enough. I wanted to learn about new ideas and get as many recipe ideas as possible but nothing I found was suitable – this is when I found Deliciously Raw.

I spoke to Deborah who explained the course to me and I signed up straight away. I can’t tell you how pleased I am to have found her! The course was exactly what I was looking for – informative and innovative but fun and relaxed at the same time. I came away with a far greater understanding of the principles behind raw eating and a great stack of recipes. Thank you so much Deb!”

– Holly Anderson, London


“Deborah is a serenely calm, very generous and warm hearted tutor, and she kept us totally interested for the whole 3 days of the Raw Desserts course. I learnt a massive amount about the use of different ingredients in the making of raw desserts – how to form different textures to produce results that will be familiar to traditional desserts, how to integrate different flavours and how to produce our own recipes. I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone who wants to produce raw healthy desserts for special occasions”

– Sue Reynard


“Deborah is an inspirational leader who has inspired me to not enter another faddy diet but to change the whole way that I look at food and how it features in my life for my life and wellbeing.”

– Lisa Tregale


“I have been truly inspired by Deborah and her passion for teaching what can be created with raw food. It has opened me up to many new experiences of taste and changing my habits around food. I now create smoothies and juices with ease with my new juicer and blender and feel much more well and vibrant because of this. I have been surprised how easy it has been to change my eating habits, once I have been given help in what to buy and where to buy it from.

I am now currently experimenting with as many possible salads and dressings as I can find and making the most delicious raw chocolate!”

– Angi Brown


“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 “mylks”, 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.”

– Mark Billinge


“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 class 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.”

– Tricia Jenkins, London



“I spent a week with Deb, in total raw emersion. The raw knowledge and skills she shared with me has been a pivotal experience in my life – one that I’ve been incorporating into my everyday, each day, because it makes me happier, it makes me more me. Thank you Deb, for sharing the raw truth. life has no limit, if you’re not afraid to jump in it.”
