On this 2nd episode of Worldchefs’ webcast “Sustainability Around the World”, chef Chris Koetke invites Feed The Planet Vice-Chair, chef Shonah Chalmers, to discuss how to effectively integrate “green” topics into professional culinary training, and explore her journey to become an innovator in culinary sustainability education in Canada.
Chef Shonah Chalmers has been a culinary educator at Humber College for the last decade. A frontrunner in the movement, she is greatly involved in the world of food sustainability, educating the next generation of chefs on its importance all over the world.
Shonah can be found assisting with many local, national and international food initiatives, from learning about urban beekeeping, donating her time at the Daily Bread Food Bank, and teaching workshops on International Chefs Day.
Chef Chalmers currently holds the role of Vice-Chair on Worldchefs Feed the Planet & Sustainability Committee, which she hopes will make a difference in the food service industry. She is currently the only chef in Canada to who holds the accreditation of Worldchefs Culinary Educator (WCCE).
