About Enchanted Foods
Sumara Elan Love
developed an early zest for creating original culinary
delights when her mother gave her free reign of the kitchen
beginning at a very young age. With a penchant for sweets,
Sumara delighted in dreaming up one dessert recipe after
another and using the neighbor kids as enthusiastic
taste-testers. As she matured her interests expanded in the
recipe development arena expanded to include many non-sweet
In 2000, after learning for the first time about the big
prizes awarded in cooking contests, Sumara decided to enter
the biggest upcoming contest, a national search for the
“Best Pizza Recipe in America.” Though a vegetarian herself,
she realized most of the taste testers would be meat-eaters.
She decided to create a vegetarian pizza that by it's unique
ingredients would also have a hearty appeal for meat eaters.
Her secret was smoked vegetables on a white sauce pizza.
After three rounds of judging over a period of several
months, Sumara's recipe was selected as the “Best Pizza
Recipe in America”, from over 20,000 entrants in the
contest. As a reward, she was given the grand prize, plus an
all-expense paid trip to Disney World for the whole family!
In 2003, Sumara and her family made the switch to a mostly
raw food diet. Her excitement was high as she looked forward
to the new genre of recipes she could create. After
preparing many of the published recipes for raw foods she
realized something more was desperately needed. Though raw
foods were nutritious and filling they often lacked the
familiar tastes and textures that people are used to.
With characteristic enthusiasm and determination Sumara set
out to create 100% raw food entries, breakfast foods, hor
d'oeuvres, soups, salads, side dishes and desserts, that
were packed full of raw nutrition and mimicked the tastes
and textures of the cooked and processed foods and desserts
most people were accustomed to eating. Now when guests come
over unless you tell them it's raw, they'll never know.
The ultimate test of raw food culinary creation has remained
her first love: desserts. Sumara did many experiments and
tried many raw ingredient mixture combinations, seeking to
find the perfect harmony of familiar taste and texture. Her
final success is nothing short of amazing. Check out the
pictures in her gallery of desserts. In every aspect from
appearance, to texture, to flavor, Sumara's raw food
desserts seem as familiar and delicious as your favorite
traditional dessert, only better! After tasting one of her
famous desserts, like the the Mocha Hazelnut Cream Delight,
or the Raspberry Cream Pie, or her melt-in-your-mouth Raw
Chocolate Truffles, most people think they have just been
pleasured by one of the most astounding desserts they have
ever eaten. Tell them it is all raw, with no flour, eggs,
dairy, sugar or cooking, and it seems to become an ambrosia
of the Gods.
Sumara is currently working on her latest book, Divinely
Decadent Raw Food Desserts, where she will share the recipes
to many of her most famous desserts. She also periodically
holds extravagant raw foods Afternoon Tea events, where
participants learn how to make all the taste sensations they
are eating! You can check out pictures from past Events and
