Recently I checked out 2 local Pot Lucks while in the USA: Arnold’s Way, a 100% raw food restaurant in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area, and the Kinzer, Pennsylvania Raw Food Pot Luck, an amazing group of people including many of the local Amish!
Below are some of the raw food recipes from them!
