PEGGY CHAN, GRASSROOTS PANTRY
More than ever, we’re thinking about what goes on our plate. To reflect the urgency of what needs to be done to protect the planet, and to acknowledge the challenges that are omnipresent in the world of F&B, we feel that now is the right time to commend those who are putting themselves forward to enact real change. Peggy Chan’s ongoing
advocacy for plant-based cuisine and more sustainable practices in the kitchen is gaining momentum. Despite being a self-proclaimed introvert, Chan has hosted talks and participated in countless panels on sustainability and green eating to sow the seeds of her beliefs. The Collective’s Table series encourages chefs to think more about how they can cook meat-free—and preferably egg-free and dairy-free as well—
while getting creative in the kitchen, too. While Grassroots is small, it’s also living proof that every person has an important part to play in the health of the planet—and
that doing good doesn’t mean sacrificing flavour.
