King CookDaily: Create Your Own Culture - Episode 52

Aug 02, 2018, 04:00 AM

King CookDaily is someone whose journey I have been following for a while and have been massively inspired by having seen his journey from opening his hugely popular CookDaily Vegan restaurant, to building a real sense of community around the brand, and sharing his positive message online.

Having worked in Michelin star restaurants and fine dining venues, King is now a full Vegan and figurehead for the scene. We spoke about his journey through his career as a chef, how his family and roots gave him self-belief, how getting stabbed and being left fighting for his life gave him the motivation to succeed.

King's journey has been truly inspiring and I was super chuffed to sit down with him for a chat.
