Alex Bury

Alex Bury was trained as a classical chef at the world's premier culinary college, the Culinary Institute of America. 

Her career as a chef was already taking off in the mid-nineties, when she became painfully aware of the plight of animals.  In 2001, she opened the famous “vegan-only” Sparks restaurant in Guerneville, California.  Now she works full-time for PETA, and also teaches the art of healthful cooking at the McDougall Program and Bay Area Vegetarians.  Her column, Heart Smart Cooking: Cooking with Compassion and Good Health, appears in the monthly newsletter for Bay Area Vegetarians.

Standing ovations and enthusiastic acclamations follow her cooking presentations.
