Peggy Chan

Founder and chef, Nectar

Peggy promoted organic, plant-based eating long before it became trendy. In 2012 she opened her vegetarian restaurant, Grassroots Pantry, and since then her influence has only grown. She launched her Collective Table initiative in 2017, which challenges chefs to cook more sustainably, and in 2018 was invited to cook at the James Beard Foundation in New York on International Women’s Day. The chef and social entrepreneur is also co-director of Zero Waste Alliance of Restaurants HK and an ambassador for Green Monday. In 2019, she opened new restaurant Nectar, around the creation of dishes that are nutritious, sustainable, nourishing and enlightening; the Original Grassroots presents five courses, while the Integrative and Edible Solutions menus offer eight and 12 courses respectively.
