|Reviews for The Raw and the Cooked|
| Vlurry19 chapter 12 . 12/15/2012
I wonder what made me think that I have already reviewed this story... oh well. This is my favorite. Absolutely favorite. I first read this story months ago and it was just so beautiful. I love the food. I love the science(?) that was put in. I loved the sadness, the frustrations between the characters. Everything about this story is perfect for me, although I cannot explain why. I can read this story everyday and not tire of its magic. Thank you for sharing this story.

Finally a character like Marek. Not all bishies covered with sparkles, eh?
OOoooohhh And cosmopolitan characters!
And food (porn).
Lovely, luscious sensual descriptions.
this was yummy.

I have a question...
I've been in love with this story for a very long time now, and I was wondering: where did you get all these delicious recipes? They make up over half the story and leave me mouth-watering every time I read them again. I'm curious.

This was a sweet ending. :-) Thanks for the story.
| Bedlam Chaos chapter 10 . 12/25/2011
I don't like Jackson that much. I know it's him being clueless but still. Through your words I can feel Marek's loneliness. He has friends and all but he lives alone and yeah. It's like Jackson's playing with emotions until he's sure about what he feels.
| Bedlam Chaos chapter 2 . 12/25/2011
Ow. Marek is such a sweetheart. I mean. Really. It's kind of heart-breaking to see how Jackson is so indifferent to him. You cannot decide who people are attracted to or even who you are yourself attracted to so I cannot hold it against Jackson but still... I hope it will be a "happy-end" kind of story because Marek exudes gentleness and candor so :-) he deserves it. :-)

This was fabulous~ xD
| OnceUponAFeudalFairytale chapter 12 . 6/30/2011
This is amazing.I have not yet to read another written work that can enfuse such details as you do.
| Abrasive chapter 12 . 7/26/2010
Lovely. The imagery was vibrant and clever, the characterisation well-rounded and interesting. Occasionally you used colons when a semi-colon or even a comma would have sufficed. Aside from that, it was stunning.

I think in the last our I fell in love.
The story is wonderful and since I have to learn some botanic iT's just perfect motivation.
Somehow I'm hooked on stories with cooking themes. The manga Kinou Nani Tabeta, is written in a simmilar way like your story. I'm just talking about how you blended the recepts and cooking in the story. I liked your way more 'cause you used the recept to describe things about the story, there was a connection between the cooking and the story.
Thanks for the great story

this was such a sweet story, so visual and tasty. it is simply beautiful.
| Antilus chapter 6 . 12/3/2009
I've never been much of a reviewer, but I've read this story six or seven times at the least and thought that the eighth time around should qualify for some sort of acknowledgment.
I absolutely love this story. I love the way Marek and Jackson play of each other. I love the wonderful circle of friends they have. I love the integration of cooking and I love you. Every time I feel like I need a little something to make my day I read this and every time it does; it picks me right up and I'm so thankful you took the time to write this incredible work and share it with us and, if not, me :)
Thanks again, Antilus.
| Lunatrix chapter 12 . 10/6/2009
I love it :)
I really like how you added all that cooking stuff, though god knows how you knew all that stuff.
Granted, the last time I tried to cook I burned the water so...
| Fluffo chapter 12 . 8/19/2009
I've never read something like this. It's very original and I love this story for the rest of my life! I pretty much got hungry too after this. I love cooking, so it's really enjoyable to read stories like this one.
I also love the way you portrayed the two main characters. Not too handsome and fancy, with "wavy hair and emerald eyes" like most people tend to do. Hairy and smelly, that's what a man is like and I love that.
I find this story realistic, enjoyable to read, sweet and sexy, great work!
| Crimsonoaks chapter 12 . 8/10/2009
this was absolutely beautiful. short (comparatively), sweet, and well written. I love how the recipes are integrated into the story. Marek's character is darling, and it is overall great. I need to seriously commend you for realizing good plots/stories aren't overly complex.
