Vicki Chelf was born in Kentucky where she was raised on crispy cornbread, fluffy white biscuits, fried potatoes, pinto beans, greens, fried apple pies and other delights that southern country cooking is famous for. Growing up with rich, delicious food made from scratch was a mixed blessing, allowing cooking to come naturally to her but making Vicki an overweight kid.
After naturally shedding the excess pounds in her teen years, Vicki vowed that she would never be overweight again. After a youthful period of extreme dieting and exercising she decided to learn how to stay trim and fit in a healthful manner. In 1971 she became a vegetarian and moved to the Laurentian Mountains where she learned to speak French and wrote La Grand Cuisine Vegetarienne, which stayed in print for over 20 years. She founded Le Pommier Fleuri, which is today one fo the largest health food stores north of Montreal. She wrote four other books that were published in French.
In 1982 Vicki sold Le Pommier and moved to Sarasota, Florida to follow her dream of pursuing a degree in fine art. In Sarasota she wrote Cooking With the Right Side of the Brain, which was followed by The Arrowhead Mills Cookbook, and others. Vicki has taught classes and workshops about healthy plant-based cisine since the mid 1970’s.
She has traveled extensively which helped mold her unique cooking style that combines the creativity of a fine artist with a first-hand experience of various world cuisines. She is an avid gardener, active painter, and long time practitioner of yoga and meditation. In 2008 Vicki received a bachelors of science in Holistic Nutrition.
