Renée Maguire launches new school and raw food workshops

Renée Maguire, founder of RawChi and a top UK chef, has today opened her cookery school, Raw Chi Academy, at Unit 2, Monk Heath Hall, Chelford Road, Nether Alderley, Cheshire, SK10 4SY.

Renée will be hosting informative and practical cookery workshops at the school, with course dates for the period December 2014 to March 2015 also announced today. The courses will present nutritionally dense foods that taste sensational.

Renée has helped hundreds of people, from the chronically unwell to professional athletes. To mark the launch of her school Raw Chi Academy, she has created five new classes. These are:

·         Chocolate workshops

·         Raw vitality day

·         Raw healthy Christmas canapés

·         Raw advanced

·         Detox & cleanse

Taking about the school and her new workshops, Renée said: “I love teaching people, so to share the knowledge and ideas behind RawChi cooking is going to be a privilege. People coming along will find the courses laid back, informative and hands-on. They’ll gain skills and knowledge about healthier living that will last them a lifetime.”

Chocolate workshops

Using cacao beans, Renée shows how to make mouth-watering, guilt-free chocolates. Cacao beans are a natural mood elevator and a great source of sulphur. They improve general health and the appearance of skin, nails and hair.

Attendees will learn how to create treats from hand-rolled rosewater truffles and chocolate cookies to individual raw chocolates – all with added superfood ingredients.

The two and a half hour workshop demonstrates how natural foods can improve health and alter perceptions about chocolate.

Raw vitality day

Renée’s Raw vitality day shows how to incorporate healthy, nutritional superfoods into breakfast, lunch and dinner. Renée uses ingredients that can improve eyesight, reduce signs of ageing, rejuvenate hair follicles and promote shiny hair.

Recipes and nutritional guidelines are provided in the RawChi information pack and raw treats will be available to sample or take away.

Raw healthy Christmas canapés

This workshop takes the stress out of seasonal canapés. A healthy alternative to the usual festive offerings, Renée’s Christmas canapés help the immune system and promote a healthy appearance.

Raw advanced

This two-day weekend course covers advanced raw techniques, from raw breads to breakfast granolas. Renée shows how to incorporate dehydration techniques into raw dishes and create healthy meals such as mushroom tart, lasagne and fruit leathers.

Detox & cleanse

This workshop reveals what happens when the body goes into detox. It covers the healing benefits of detoxing on the immune system and shows how to successfully clean the body from the inside out.
