About the Chefs
|Chef AJ, bio to come|
|Susen Hunter Corporate Chef S. A. Hunter – aka “CHEF GREEN V” – uses her vegan superpowers for Native Foods Café, the nation’s premier fast-casual, plant-based restaurant group, headquartered in Chicago, IL. As part of the Native Foods Café Culinary Team, Chef Susen travels across the country to NFC locations presenting free cooking demos to the public and spreading vegan love and knowledge. Chef Susen was raised in a family heavily into dairy farming, cattle ranching, and horse-racing. As a result, she had her heart broken by the “business as usual” deaths of a few beloved cows and many horses until one fall day when she lost a favorite mare to a horseracing accident and declared that no more could she accept the life she was living.
Since then, she has become a dedicated advocate for eating compassionately, creating a sustainable planet, and educating others about healthy living. Chef Susen has a diverse culinary background which includes experience in family restaurants, the galleys of luxury yachts in the Caribbean, the kitchens of clients as a personal chef, in health and wellness clinics, and in years of catering and recipe development as a vegan chef. Over the past decade, she has presented countless demonstrations and talks explaining and promoting a vegan lifestyle and its associated health benefits. Additionally, she has worked as a nutritional consultant and writer for several clients including a worldwide dietary supplement company. It must also be noted that Chef Green V is obsessed with kitchen gadgets and cookie cutters. But she is in therapy and getting help for the cookie cutter issue. You can follow Chef Green V on Facebook at and on Twitter.
A shout out to our buddy Chef AJ....she's terrific so what a line up!
