Welcome to the heart and soul of Experience Raw. Our mission is to educate, inspire and connect you to your food in every way possible. We very much believe you are what you eat. It affects everything – your energy, emotions, clarity, weight, digestion, sleep and soul. That’s why we offer a number of ways for you to shift your thinking about eating and what healing food can do for you.

Group Classes

There are several locations to take a healthy culinary class from Experience Raw’s certified gourmet raw food chef Kirsten Gum.  Please visit our Events page for dates, times and locations.

“Kirsten’s workshop was a total delight! She was able to connect with each person in the class and to bridge the diverse levels of awareness about food among the group so that everyone learned new information about nutrition, raw food preparation, and even where to purchase special products and ingredients. It is obvious that she is an impassioned teacher and mentor, helping people reclaim or maintain their health and vitality!”
