Plant-Based Chef and Lifestyle Educator, Matthew Kenney on GREAT TASTE this Week

Cooked Raw-Matthew Kenney

This Wednesday I welcome back to the show Matthew Kenney.  I have great admiration for Matthew.  In the 90's he was in the top tier of chefs as a chef/owner of Matthew's and other restaurants in New York City.  But, much to the dismay, confusion, and derision of many of his colleagues he changed course in the new century to become an untiring champion of the plant-based, raw food lifestyle.  He has applied his extensive classical training, modernist techniques, and experience to elevate raw food cuisine to a level that wows people at his restaurants, his culinary academy, and through numerous books.  Despite numerous overwhelming personal and business challenges, his commitment to educating the public about the benefits of a plant-based diet and lifestyle is unwavering.  

We'll talk about his new memoir, Cooked Raw, plus discuss his latest endeavors. Tune in at 7:00 pm CT on Wednesday for an inspiring session with Matthew Kenney.  It doesn't matter what type of diet you prefer.  The stream is open to everyone.

In the second half of the show, "Iowa Cooks,"  we are going to continue the discussion with some local folks who eat a plant-based diet.  Come by the studio if you want to join in.
