This week in my kitchen, I'm joined by the inspiring Max La Manna – a plant-based chef, content creator, campaigner, and avid food enthusiast! In this episode, Max shares his journey to a plant-based lifestyle, weaving through his experiences in acting, modeling, and cheffing. We delve into the story of how two Instagram videos catapulted his following by 60,000.

Max isn't just passionate about crafting delicious plant-based meals; he's on a mission to tackle food waste, a pressing issue as we discard 1/3 of the food brought into our homes. His new book, "You Can Cook This!" addresses this problem, offering mouth-watering recipes to transform commonly wasted foods.

I have followed Max for many years and have loved his style and energy in the kitchen, therefore having him in my kitchen this week was super exciting and we discussed the following topics:

  • His first food memory
  • His childhood and the food he grew up eating
  • When and why he turned vegan
  • Being plant-based
  • His career journey
  • Social media and growing online
  • Food Waste and why it means so much to him
  • The journey to writing his second book You Can Cook This
  • Promoting his cookbook
  • How the plant-based space has changed
