Mission & History

Our Mission


The vision of the Vegan Iron Chef organization is to celebrate creative culinary achievements, bring attention to food justice issues, and unite the ever-expanding vegan community through events and programming. Since 2009, we’ve produced both massive and intimate events to showcaseΒ the flourishing realm of vegan food.
