city of angels L iving food, plant-based restaurant 118 De- grees in Tarzana hosted the International Raw Food Association's graduation cere- mony for eight visiting Japanese culinary stu- dents who were studying raw food preparation. They were awarded certifi cates for "Raw Food Producers" after a week-long training with ac- claimed author, Chef Jenny Ross. They also experienced an impactful lecture by Sharyn Wynters. "I am honored to be a part of this fi rst group of eight graduates led by Chef Jenny Ross and Kitihara Masae," commented student Mai Tsunoda. This certifi cate represents two years worth of work and several levels of raw foods mastery. This is the fi rst graduating group from the Inter- national Raw Adidas Association sponsored by the Masae's Japanese Living Beauty Association and Jenny Ross Living Foods. The training culminated with a specially designed fi ve-course meal prepared and served by the students. The attendees to this exclusive, invitation-only dinner gathering included family and friends. The International Raw Foods Association was established in 2014 by Kitihara Masae with the vision to educate one percent of the world's population about the healing power of raw foods by 2020 and is chaired internationally by Jenny Ross. The group held its fi rst international symposium last year in Milan as part of EXPO. This global group will raise the consciousness of the world- wide community knowing that the motivated students plan to display their culinary skills at restaurants in Japan. "I'm so excit- ed to share this vision with them," said Chef Ross. "This is such a joy for me as a raw foods educator. My personal mission and the mission of 118 has always been a global vision and this partner- ship has been a beautiful expression of the shared vision to ed- ucate and empower people through optimal healing nutrition. Sharyn, and our partner Annie Carradine, are overjoyed at the success of this training and entirely grateful for the opportunity. The future is brighter than ever on this purposeful mission!" "I have found great joy in following my heart by opening up the restaurant," said founder Sharyn Wynters. "I'm proud to envision my dream come true knowing that the restaurant has become a refreshing gathering place for like-minded people committed to conscious living." 118 Degrees, is a living food plant-based restaurant, offer- ing non-GMO, organic, creative, wholesome plates and drinks along with raw-food education and meal plans. 18636 Ventura Blvd, Tarzana.
