MEET OUR CHEF
For Margie Cook, it’s always been about food, but when it became all about plant food, she decided to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN) and a Certified Vegan Lifestyle Coach and Educator (VLCE).
As an avid food “experimenter” Margie was determined to create delicious, plant-based recipes as tasty as any in an omnivore diet.
The plant-based foods Margie has created for IL FORNELLO are designed not only to help lead to a healthier planet, but also to improve the health of those who enjoy them.
“I applaud IL FORNELLO for getting ahead of this exciting new era that could literally help save the planet.”
