Alexis Gauthier is a multi-award-winning French chef and successful London restaurateur.
In 2016 he became vegan, and in 2021 he removed all animal products from his restaurant menus entirely.
"I believe it is our duty as human beings to leave the planet in a better state than we found it, and a very good place to start is addressing the impact we make with our needless and selfish consumption of animals.
I am a classically trained French chef who held Michelin stars for 12 years and the thought of someone like me being vegan would have been insane five or ten years ago. But now the world is waking up. This is the future."
