Ohio farm family opens Culinary Vegetable Institute
The Culinary Vegetable Institute isn't handing out sheepskins -- yet --
but the nation's foremost collaboration between the keepers of the earth
and the kings of the kitchens is just as serious as any institute of
"I feel like a kid in a candy store," says Roxanne Klein, co-owner and
executive chef of Roxanne's restaurant in Larkspur, Calif. She and her
husband, Michael, prominent proponents of the "living foods movement"
(also called the "raw foods movement"), traveled a long way from their

dedicate the recent formal opening of the institute, a one-of-a-kind,
hand-in-hand association between farmers and culinary professionals.
