You’re never too young

Just amazing! In London, Omari McQueen has been honing his culinary skills for nearly half of his life — and he’s only 12 years old. After starting his own vegan food company four years ago, Omari went on to his next big project — a cookbook — and he’s determined to change the way kids look at food. At a very young age, Omari started reading about veganism and he was instantly intrigued. After experimenting with some vegan dips, the budding chef, and his family, launched Dipalicious, a vegan restaurant and food company that also sells snacks and meals.

Now, the 12-year-old has a new cookbook that’s a collection of 30 vegan recipes titled, Omari McQueen’s Best Bites Cookbook. He says, “readers can expect to try different foods and experiment with different flavors while having fun and learning top tips from me.”

For the young chef, a cookbook is just the next step in what he hopes will be a very long, successful career. However, Omari is also quick to give credit where it’s due and acknowledged that his parents and sibling have helped him every step of the way. We cheer Omari on as one of the youngest movers and shakers in the veg world. It’ll be exciting to see what he does next!
