Peace on Earth” is a widely shared goal, but not a common one in our day-to-day lives—especially when it comes to the food we eat. Casey Dobbins is a born and raised vegetarian from a cow town in eastern Kansas. An unlikely tale, but one that colors her perception and refines her awareness of what it means to be a (self-proclaimed) “Peace Chef.” Her approach to cooking is rooted in her parent’s involvement in the plant-based counterculture food movement of the 1960’s, which also inspired her to open her first restaurant: a vegetarian cafe in Lawrence, KS. Upon moving to Los Angeles, Casey spent a short and sweet couple of years with the family at Elf Cafe, before becoming a private chef and food stylist. She now resides in Echo Park with her husband and new baby boy, Cricket. Encouraging peace and creating a gentle world through food is Casey’s culinary mission, even if it means doing it one bowl at a time.
