Chef Doris Fin Bio
Chef Doris began cooking from the age of seven and travelling from the age of eighteen, exploring various cultures and cuisines. She cooked and foraged with locals and various chefs, while learning the necessity of cooking with quality ingredients, specifically local and seasonal. Chef Doris specializes in plant-based (mostly plants, not plant-only) culinary arts, teaches interactive culinary classes, while encouraging people to support locals and inspire them cook their own meals. Due to COVID-19 she created 12 flavours of Finscicles, her plant-based organic “ice cream” bars. You can check out her witty YouTube videos (see website below) where she weaves her knowledge and love of food and nature with a little history, music, and cartoons. As she inspires others to return to the kitchen, she makes gathering, cooking, and feasting upon ingredients fun and educational for all ages.
