WE SHOW THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO BETTER THE WORLD COMMUNITY THROUGH THE FOOD THAT A BUSINESS SERVES.
Originally ordained by his grandfather to become a physician, Greg Christian recounts how mere accident, happenstance and good luck led him into a career in the culinary arts.
This memoir, by one of Chicago’s most celebrated chefs, offers an intimate glimpse into the life challenges and remarkable career of a gifted individual who never quite felt that he belonged until he discovered shamanistic healing.
The debilitating asthma of his youngest daughter caused him to search for ways to help her recovery, both through organic food and holistic medicine.
Part of the key, claims Christian, is to acknowledge the mistakes made in the past, both by major companies as well as by individuals, and to recognize that we have all played a part in creating a world that is tainted by chemicals and poisons, a world where most of the food that is sold is unfit to eat.
Ultimately, it will be forgiveness of self and others that will allow us to move ahead together in partnership to envision and create a safer, saner world.
Currently Greg heads up Greg Christian Consulting, a sustainability consulting firm that provides companies within the food service industry and with in-house dining services with sustainable solutions and implementation strategies that allow them to reduce their environmental footprints and to become even more profitable from going green.
