Our fifth annual Roots conference took place from September 25th to 26th, and our goal was to bring together the most groundbreaking chefs, farmers, thought leaders, activists and food scientists, so we could engage in dynamic discussions about culinary innovations.

Chefs work long hours, including plenty of off hours as they arrive early in the morning to begin food prep or stay late at night providing meals to diners enjoying an evening out. And yet, 95 percent of people working in the culinary industry are also involved in charities. So, Elizabeth Andrew could be talking about chefs when she says they don’t have the time – but they do have the heart.
"Why do you feel the need to wake up in the morning; is there like a particular reason to do it? Why do I do what I do; I don't know. I don't know why as far as being creative; I mean look I suppose I was just born with a curious mind."
One of the best ways to successfully live a healthy lifestyle is to be educated, inspired and supported by other people on the same journey. And yet, we’ve probably all listened to someone else talk about how he or she eats a clean diet, exercises regularly, gets enough sleep and manages an ideal balance between work and personal life – and left feeling discouraged rather than inspired. That’s probably because the other person’s lifestyle seemed too perfect to be achievable.
