Metro Magazine NZ - - Feature -

Pretty much ev­ery sin­gle item at Me­gan May and Jeremy Bar­nett’s three raw­food out­lets is... So. Damn. Tasty. How on earth do they do it? Ac­tu­ally, it starts with good earth: May’s fam­ily helped to pi­o­neer the or­ganic move­ment in New Zealand. Her up­bring­ing, com­bined with an en­vi­ron­men­tal sci­ence de­gree and for­mal chef train­ing, has in­formed her re­la­tion­ship with “the good dirt”, re­sult­ing in raw food that’s reached its so­phis­ti­cated pin­na­cle. From tangy raw “cheese­cakes” (which use nuts as a foun­da­tion) to sat­is­fy­ing “let­tuce bun” kimchi burg­ers and thick, nu­tri­tious smooth­ies, her and Bar­nett’s phi­los­o­phy that food should taste as good as it is for your body is demon­strated with de­li­cious­ness rather than merely talked about.
