The White Lotus: chef-driven raw foods coming to Miami.
As we reported back in August, Matthew Kenney, the James Beard-nominated celebrity chef that specializes in healthy eating, is opening an organic and raw, plant-based food concept in Wynwood this Spring.

The venture, a partnership with Karla Dascal of Karla Conceptual Event Experiences, will be two-fold. The White Lotus restaurant will specialize in organic, raw foods. The restaurant will also feature an extensive bar serving juices and blended drinks, cocktails utilizing fresh, seasonal ingredients, and a large organic wine and sake selection. This is the chef's fourth restaurant.

If eating healthy inspires you to turn that into a lifestyle, Matthew Kenney Culinary, a state-of-the-art raw food culinary academy, will give you the tools to prepare healthful meals at home.

The academy's curriculum puts emphasis on the use of whole, organic, unprocessed plant-based foods in a commercial, state-of-the-art commercial living foods kitchen. Several classes will be offered with week-long, four-week, and weekend courses to choose from. The first class scheduled, Fundamentals of Raw Cuisine, will be held in March 2014. Kenney already has culinary institutes in California and New England, and teaches online courses.

Both the restaurant and culinary institute will be located at The Space Miami, which is also home to The Sacred Space. Watch the passionate chef talk about making life choices for the better here:

Finally! A very nice and new plant-based restaurant in Miami! You just tapped into a large and un-tapped "plant-based"/ vegan, South Florida market. I can not wait...

Organic, raw food - isn't that what a farmers market is?
