Chef Pickarski is a certified meat cutter, culinologist, book author, and seven time International Culinary Olympic Medalist with plant-based vegetarian cuisine. He became a plant-based vegetarian for health reasons 42 years ago, and at age 69 is reaping the benefits of his decision. As omnivores, meat should be a small percentage of our protein intake. Chef Pickarski created the Flexitarian® hybrid meat concept to help those seeking healthy meat options to achieve that balance.
