Bryant Terry

Oakland, Calif.-based author, food-justice-activist and eco-chef Bryant Terry not only knows his way around a kitchen (check out “Vegan Soul Kitchen: Fresh, Healthy, and Creative African-American Cuisine”), but he also serves up food for thought, inspiring us to truly think about food beyond calorie counting and a perfectly plated presentation. Believing that food should taste good and be good for the planet, our bodies and our communities, Terry is one not-so-obvious eco-superhero with incredibly good taste.
