Tom Hunt is an award-winning chef, food writer, climate change activist and author of the new book Eating for Pleasure, People & Planet.
Hunt prioritises people and the environment within his work and believes in a world with a fair global food system where our actions benefit other people and nature. He works to protect biodiversity and promote equality by raising awareness about the issues affecting our food system whilst empowering people and businesses to act responsibly through his consultancy, collaborations, food writing, presenting and events.
In response to the global food waste scandal, Tom has developed an holistic approach to food called Root to Fruit Eating that educates and enables everyone from home cooks to industry chefs to tackle climate change through the food they cook and eat.
Root to Fruit Eating is based on three core principles:
EAT FOR PLEASURE
EAT WHOLE FOODS
EAT THE BEST FOOD YOU CAN
