Today I'm joined on the MainUnStream mic by Pete Evans, business owner, entrepreneur, restaurateur, celebrity chef, father and staunch advocate for living a healthy life with what we put into our bodies, both physically and non-physically.
Pete Evans is an inspiring person. IMHO he has achieved so much more by his 40's than most people will achieve in a lifetime and he does it while still remaining a humble, kind and giving human being.
Pete started work at the age of 13 in his first commercial kitchen, and a love of food saw Pete begin his full time career as chef at the age of 17. At the age of 19 he became a restaurateur, opening numerous award-winning restaurants nationally as well as cooking in some of the finest restaurants globally.
The conversation on this episode is laced with so much great business advice, whether you want to call them diamonds or golden nuggets; they're in there just waiting for you to pick them up.
Pete’s career spans professional kitchens - where you can find him cooking and consulting on new restaurants and wellness projects menus and concepts - to mainstream media, with numerous television and film appearances.
Pete has been co-host and judge of Australia’s number 1 television show My Kitchen Rules for 11 seasons. He has hosted and produced 2 seasons (16 episodes) of The Paleo Way, a television series which sees Pete creating delicious non-inflammatory dishes with special guests from around the globe and interviewing some of the world’s leading experts on health and wellness. Pete also hosts the award-winning PBS series Moveable Feast, now about to begin its 8th season, which sees Pete cooking with leading chefs in the USA and from around the world and learning where to source amazing local produce.
As Australia’s number one selling author of healthy cooking and lifestyle books for the last 5 years, Pete is dedicated to educating people about nutritional food and wellness. With around 25 books to his name over the last 13 years, Pete is one of Australia’s most published contemporary Australian chefs. He is also a health coach, with qualifications gained from New York’s internationally recognised Institute of Integrative Nutrition.
