Our History

The name Raw Gourmets International was used for the first time in relation to raw culinary excellence in 2005 when Master Chef Mehmet Ak created one of the most important orders in Chicago.

November 14th, 2005 is the date when the first raw “uncooking” demonstration took place on an electric RGI located in 3038 west Irving Park Rd. Shortly after, due to the prestigious nature of Raw Living Food life style and its growing community, Raw Gourmets International Culinary Art Institute, the very first Raw Culinary Art School launched in Chicago, became well recognized and celebrated. Great effort was put in the promotion of the school but great results rewarded it.

From this point on, the international reputation of Raw Gourmets International spread rapidly. Great chefs came to the school to teach students further, contributing to the world-renowned reputation of the raw culinary school. As a result, students from a variety of countries were enrolling in classes as well as notable restaurants start opening world wide.

Today, Raw Gourmet International proudly offers raw vegan culinary education all around the world based in Turkey.
