Pete Evans is an Australian TV personality, Chef, Restaurateur, Author and most recently, Evans has entered the cannabis and psychedelic space through his documentaries on cannabis and ayahuasca.
Welcome to the seventh episode of The Green Fund's CannaCast! The CannaCast features prominent figures within the cannabis space, whether it be entrepreneurs, doctors, chefs, or CEO's of cannabis companies, we will be speaking to the people that have made waves in the cannabis industry. And today, we're bringing you our seventh guest, the iconic Australian chef Pete Evans.
Pete began his career as a chef, before moving on to open his own series of restaurants called 'Hugo's' in Australia's Bondi, Kings Cross and Manly throughout the 90s and early 2000s. The Hugo's restaurants reached stratospheric levels of success, earning Pete and the other co-owners a litany of awards, including the 'Best Pizza in the World' award from the American Pizza Challenge in New York City.
Pete then served as one of the judges on the prominent TV cooking show 'My Kitchen Rules' for a decade, publishing numerous cookbooks in the process, before going on to adopt and advocate for the Paleo and Ketogenic diets, which emphasise a less-processed diet that centres around meat and vegetables with low carb intake.
From there, Pete has delved into alternative dietary and health practices, speaking out against fluoride in water, sunscreen, and vaccinations, as well as producing a documentary about cannabis called 'The Magic Plant.'
Pete's contrarian views have placed a controversial lens around him by the media, and in this episode of the CannaCast, we delve deep into the role media plays in public perception.
