Omari the Vegan Chef

Omari the Vegan Chef

Thirteen-year-old Omari is an award winning vegan chef, instagrammer, Youtuber, author, entrepreneur, campaigner and TV presenter. He always had a passion for cooking but at the age of seven Omari began to truly hone his skills by focusing on healthy family meals. A year later Omari founded his first food business, Dipalicious, and launched youtube tutorials inspiring other young people how to cook.

He has gone on to win three amazing awards: TruLittle Hero Award for being the Entrepreneur Hero U12 2018 by Cause4Children Ltd, Compassionate Kids award for using his entrepreneurial flair to help animals and the Proud and Gifted Award in recognition of being a vegan chef and a youth empowerment speaker.

In 2020 Omari (and his family) starred in a CBBC comedic cooking show, ‘What’s Cooking, Omari?’ which saw him combine his love of great food, with fun and family time.

Early this year, Omari’s first cookbook ‘Omari’s Best Bites’ sold out during its first print run with rave reviews on Amazon. He is currently writing his second cookbook and continues to expand his plant based food business. Everything Omari does is under the mantra of ‘Good Food Can Do Good’.
