Welcome to SO Tasty Vegan!

SO Tasty Vegan is the project of vegan chef, Sally Owens a.k.a., "SO". Sally has always been innovative in the kitchen – not always by choice due to a dairy allergy – but when she went vegan she quickly learned it was her entire lifestyle that was transformed, not merely her diet. The passion, heightened awareness, and artistry born out of her relationship with food unexpectedly flowed into every dimension of her life. SO Tasty Vegan is Sally’s commitment to share her discoveries with anyone and everyone interested in cultivating a better understanding of the intricate relationship between their food, body, and lifestyle. 


A graduate of The Institute for Integrative Nutrition and New York's Natural Gourmet Institute, Sally's professional experience is extensive. She was Executive Chef and now Creative Director at The Stanford Inn's premiere Ravens' Vegan Restaurant in Mendocino California. For Lawrence Craig Caterers, she assisted with vegan meal production. For Williams-Sonoma she is a Vegan Food Representative and culinary coordinator. Sally has been featured in Vegetarian Times for her culinary accomplishments. She also produces pop-up dinners in Montclair, New Jersey, and presents gourmet vegan and gluten-free demonstrations regularly.

Why not try a vegan meal? Like Sally, you might be pleasantly surprised that your energy and creativity in the kitchen sneak into other moments of your life.
