Chef Carole Levy has loved art and food since she was a young girl cooking with her grandmother. Her first professional culinary experience was in a vegetarian restaurant where she built a foundation for eating healthfully. After many years of working with top chefs in restaurants and bakeries, she opened a café in San Francisco and incorporated a culinary job training program as part of its mission.
While her career shifted away from food to creative advertising for the film industry, she never lost her passion for cooking. In early 2019 she participated in PPMNY’s 21-Day Jumpstart Program and shifted her 23 years of vegetarian eating to a whole-food, plant-based, SOS-free lifestyle—eliminating dairy, salt, oil, and sugar.
Since then she’s earned a certificate from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and eCornell, and is a certified Food for Life instructor. Carole’s greatest ambition is to inspire people to take chances in the kitchen by teaching individuals to cook without fear, be open to creativity, and embrace more health-minded, nutrient-dense food combinations.
