Meet Chef Zu of Kings Apron in Decatur

Today we’d like to introduce you to Chef Zu.

Chef Zu is the founder of Kings Apron and sustainable plant-based farm-to-table chef as well as certified holistic nutritionist, Chef Zu of Kings Apron has facilitated food literacy programming for Marta Market Fresh, Morehouse School of Medicine, Georgia Tech, Georgia Food Oasis, Georgia Organics, Georgia House of Covenant, Fulton County Commissioner District 5 and many more local Atlanta non-profits and community initiatives.

Kings Apron’s focus is teaching sustainability and nutrition through food literacy. They have had great success engaging low income, less fortunate communities in food literacy programming which provides children, families and senior citizens with healthier food options.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Being laid off and starting a company with little income, but big dreams. I would have to say that the hardest part is to remember each and every day to stay positive and continue to work harder.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Kings Apron – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
We specialize in plant-based and raw food. We are food educators. We are personal chefs. We are caterers.

Chef Zu is a certified holistic nutritionist and provides a wide array of services from workshops to classes to live demonstrations. I think one our main differences is that we educate as well cater and serve. We are proud of our teachings from our elders and how we have learned to infuse those teachings with some new innovative ways to present vegan plant-based cuisine to any and everyone.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
We are planning for a fall cookbook release and are focusing being able to tour the world through food education. We are looking forward to the summer of 2018 as well as what new fruits will sprout from Atlanta’s steadily growing urban agricultural scene.
