Lauren Lovatt is plant-based chef and entrepreneur. She is the founder of the Plant Academy in London and the woman behind Feed Your Mind Candy, a project dedicated to inspiring better mental health through food. She will also be releasing her first book, Mind Food, in early 2022.
Early on in her career Lauren set up an aspirational vegan restaurant, Asparagasm, which led her to host her own plant-based pop up nights around Europe. Now teaching worldwide from Bali to Barcelona, as well as at prestigious institutions such as Leiths School of Food and Wine, her passion lies in sharing and inspiring a knowledge for plant-based food. With a keen eye for plating and a passion for the most vibrant, seasonal ingredients, her style is all about using natural ingredients, elevated.
Setting up Plant Academy also led her to co-create The Food Studio, a collaborative space with Sara Kiyo Popowa, of @shisodelicious. It’s a space to create, film, make images and explore the power of the visual as well as host Plant Academy from. The Plant Academy teaches cutting edge courses that enable students to discover and express their essence through food and have a positive impact on the food system, always striving to share the best in plant based food.
