Meet our guests: Gabrielle Darvassy is the Executive Chef and curator of B’Gabs Vegan Kitchen. B’Gabs was established as a wellness space that not only provided plant-based nutrition but provided educational classes ranging from deep meditation, holistic nutrition, and herbalism. Gabrielle’s unique model of inclusion has gained recognition for superior food ingenuity to most recently community service initiatives by the Obama Foundation. Gabrielle’s passion to ensure that all people regardless of economic demographic should have access to health and nutritional options leads her service charge of giving. It is these passions that continue Gabrielle’s pursuits in obtaining continued education and forming alliances with those who wish to eradicate food insecurity.
Christine is the owner of Smackdab Chicago, a Chicago-based cafe with vegan options. “This lovely little company of ours was born in 2015 from our shared vision to offer the Chicago community real, handmade food and amazing service from the heart.”
