Happy Oasis, Founder
Raw Spirit Festival

"Gideon and Jackie Graff are two of America's leading professional raw food teachers. I am profoundly grateful for the Gideon's coordination and management of the Raw Demo Chefs Program in 2007 and 2008 at the Raw Spirit Festival in Sedona where Jackie assisted greatly and led a vibrant vegan prep class each year.  Raw Spirit Festival endorses the Graff's teaching programs and looks forward to working with Gideon and Jackie for many years to come!"

Dr. George and Rhonda Malkmus,

“Although Rhonda has been teaching culinary food preparation classes for years and has authored several recipe books, she has learned so many new and different techniques from Jackie and Gideon Graff.   Jackie and Gideon’s expertise in the realm of raw food preparation is renowned.  They have previously owned and operated a very successful raw foods restaurant and are Culinary Chefs who have the desire to share their wealth of knowledge with others.  They teach classes not only in the Atlanta area, but have also been teaching classes on a regular bases at Hallelujah Acres since 2004 Now, you too, can have the privilege of “learning at their feet” so to speak; by simply taking their classes in your home town.. “  

We have more endorsements from other raw food leaders, but we think this will give you the idea.

What Students Say About Our Classes.
We have hundreds of testimonials from satisfied students, and in our teaching career, we receive excellent evaluations with many saying that they got much more than they expected and was an excellent value compared to other courses available. We will share a few of these with you.

“Can't tell you how much your class has given me the confidence and insight needed to do well with the raw food lifestyle.  I did not use to do much of anything in the kitchen - now my wife can't believe the transformation.  I'm in there preparing the recipes and experimenting.  She has now joined in and is actually doing most of the work.  The cooking class is crucial to staying with the
program. “

I would encourage everyone to make it to the Graff's classes. They are excellent teachers and the most wonderful and sincere people - not to mention excellent chefs!! AND if you are looking for a fun filled class - I highly recommend checking them out. I promise you won't regret it. They have shaped and changed my life so greatly and I will be forever grateful because, honestly my raw food prep before taking their class was known to make people cry it was so bad. Now people beg for it thanks to my excellent teachers.
