glow restaurant hosts raw & “living cuisine” expert Diana von Cranach from October 15th – 20th
October 11th, 2012
glow, the healthy-eating restaurant at Metropolitan by COMO, Bangkok, presents the culinary delights of raw food with an exclusive menu during the Thai Vegetarian Festival that will take place across Thailand in October.
The menu has been devised by raw food pioneer Diana Von Cranach, and offers a choice of three or five courses of delicious raw and ‘living’ food. Sample dishes include ‘Thai flower salad with asparagus and green pepper jelly’ and ‘warm mushroom and miso cappuccino with the five tastes of Thailand’. Diana will also share her raw cooking secrets with a cooking Masterclass on 19th and 20th October, which begins with a trip to Pak Klong Talad (better known as the flower market) to show what to look out for in terms of the best raw ingredients.
The raw food menu is available at glow every lunch and dinner from October 15th to 20th.

After being Cordon Bleu trained, Diana von Cranach decided that she had to find her own style of cooking. Later relocating to the Northwest corner of Bali, von Cranach has owned and operated her own boutique resort, Puri Ganesha Villas, since 1996. In 2005, von Cranach began to develop her unique, ‘rawfully good’ interpretation of the ‘living’ food movement that had begun in the USA in the 1990s. Now, von Cranach also owns L’Elephant Vert restaurant in Luang Prabang and works as a guest chef at COMO Shambhala Estate, Bali. Von Cranach is the author of Rawfully Good: Living Flavours of Southeast Asia and is a strong advocate of raw food preparations, with style.
