My name is Peace Ravenwood and I am a Living Foods educator and experimenter, founder of the School of Living Foods and Alchemy Elixir Cafe ~ based in Northamptonshire UK. I love sharing the gifts and benefits of a life rich in raw foods, and also love spending as much time as possible outside in the garden, growing lots of fresh organic produce to use in the recipes. Wild foraging is also a passion of mine, one which I am constantly learning more about. My life is dedicated to learning and sharing every aspect of life in the raw, from seed ~ stomach ~ spirituality and sensuality. My other loves are of spending time with loved ones Anthony and our tribe of furry companions, reading, researching, writing and a little radical rebellion...my aim here to you is to walk with you while we change our world, one meal at a time Inlakesh Peace xxx

About Amy:
Amy attended a 3 year culinary arts course and at the age of 18 she began her career as a chef, but soon realized something was missing between the meat and potatoes…vegetables! It was at this time that Amy found her way into a vegetarian kitchen and experienced the true genius of vegetarian cooking. This naturally peaked her interest in health, which led to her attending an intensive Holistic Health Counseling program in NYC. During this time she was first introduced to raw food and chocolate.  After graduation she returned to her biggest passion, being a chef, and was now able to couple that with holistic balance and nutritional awareness. 
‘The Food Clinic’ was where she was able to bring her holistic health approach into her career as a chef by providing nutritional balance to dishes. Following this, Amy began her path of working with and studying raw chocolate as Chocolatier at ‘The Raw Chocolate Company’ in Brighton. This avenue provided her the great opportunity to work within the science of food. It was as if the final piece of the puzzle she had been working on for so long had final appeared. Since then Amy has worked along some top chefs, including world renowned raw food chef, Chad Sarno and created exceptional and truly unique raw chocolates. She continues to research the nutrition and science of raw chocolate and food.

Class Testimonials:

“I really enjoyed Amy's class.  It was great to learn from someone with such in-depth culinary knowledge, years of professional experience and the patience to share her expertise with novices like me!  The techniques taught in the class have opened up many new avenues to explore and Amy has inspired me to be more creative in my experimentation with textures and flavour combinations.  Definitely a day well spent!” - E. Simmons

"Ooosha Rocks!!! Amy Levin is an absolute genius, and she's so wonderful to boot!! If you have the basics of chocolate and want to go further then Amy will just open you up to a new level. "

retreat in the Sussex countryside." D. Apolline
