In Episode #5 of The Proof podcast, I spoke with Peter Cervoni: a veteran of the food service industry with well over thirty years of proven, professional culinary experience in plant-based, health-supportive cuisine. Peter graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in 1993 and worked at some of New York City’s finest restaurants, including The River Café and La Côte Basque. Since switching to a plant-based diet, he has worked as a chef for top plant-based restaurants in New York City, a food writer for Vegetarian Times, a food stylist, a culinary educator, and a restaurant consultant.
In this podcast, we discuss the epiphany that led Peter to switch to a plant-based diet twenty-one years ago. Since then, Peter has devoted all his talent and energy to plant-based and health-supportive cuisine, and in this episode, he shares his insights into how the plant-based food scene in New York has changed over the past two decades. He also shares some high-level information on innovative plant-based food products he’s working on and some tips for plant-based dining in New York City.
