Ginger and Drexele Jones, who are known as Gingerlicious and Naughty Bites, captured first place at the ninth annual Wonderful Wizards of Raw competition for raw chefs with their Raw Asian Basil Spring Rolls served with homemade Thai chili and peanut sesame sauces. 

The cook-off was held the first weekend of June in the backyard of Tassili’s Raw Reality Café.

“I am excited to take home first place seven days before my 50th solar return on June 12,” said Ginger Jones. 

Blue Pill came in second with his 7 Heaven Seamoss smoothie. Third place was given to The Godhead Eatery, founded by Solomon Obadyah Yisrael, for his version of raw tacos. 

More information about these Atlanta-based businesses—Gingerlicious and The Godhead Eatery—can be found at and, respectively. Blue Pill resides in New York; attempts to find a URL to order his products were unsuccessful.

The theme of this year’s Wonderful Wizards of Raw was “Return to the Garden.” Tassili Ma’at, The Café’s founder and owner, says, “The most revolutionary thing we can do right now is to choose life. What does that look like? It is as simple as an apple instead of a bag of potato chips; juice instead of soda; water instead of juice. Not only does it not cost you more, it probably costs less. We must begin to heal our bodies using food as medicine deliciously!”
