The author

Brianna Claxton is the chef and creative force behind Plvntfood, built on the understanding that food is art. While vegan food has, in some circles, inherited the reputation of being boring rabbit food, Brianna takes it in the other direction with mind-blowing flavors and possibilities. Her mission is to heal, inspire, tease, delight, and encourage the exploration of new cuisines. Brianna learned to cook from her Italian grandmother and continues to rework, veganize, and refine the recipes that were passed down to her. These family recipes feature an array of colors and textures and often form the centerpiece of a full vegan table.
Brianna has been featured by a variety of outlets and events, including an appearance on Amazon Prime’s High Cuisine, and a signature appearance at Eat Drink Vegan Festival, where Brianna/Plvntfood had a signature dish. She has appeared in or has written for Peta, Mercy for Animals, Veg News, Chickpea magazine, and PBN Food (by Plant Based News).
