Amy Chaplin

Bio: Amy Chaplin is a vegetarian chef living in New York City by way of Amsterdam and London. She grew up in rural New South Wales Australia where cooking and eating meals from her family’s organic garden sparked her passion for fresh seasonal ingredients and handmade food. Amy has been cooking professionally for nearly 20 years and over the course of her career has founded her own catering business and worked as a vegan pastry chef, consultant, and executive chef of the world-renowned vegan restaurant Angelica Kitchen. Amy now cooks and teaches privately and writes her own blog “Coconut and Quinoa”

My philosophy: I believe we can find health and a deeper connection to nature thru cooking and eating sustainably grown whole foods.

If I weren’t doing what I do now, I’d probably be: Exploring the world…. I love what I do and since it involves so many of the things I am passionate about I can’t imagine doing anything else…except travelling more!

Favorite piece of advice: Creativity is in the process; not the end result.
