Chef, restaurateur, food educator and visionary, Ann Gentry has spent the past twenty-five years striving to raise the standard of vegetarian cooking in this country. Ann is the creator, founder and operating owner of Real Food Daily, the only restaurant in the Los Angeles area that serves a 100 percent vegetarian (vegan) menu using foods grown exclusively with organic farming methods. Bon Appétit magazine declared "Ann Gentry, the creator of Real Food Daily has taken two different California trends - vegetarian foods, and the organic seasonal cooking popularized by Alice Waters of Chez Panisse - and come up with a cuisine that is as interesting and delicious as it is healthful." With two locations, in Santa Monica and West Hollywood, California, Real Food Daily has “developed a loyal following”, from the someday to the everyday vegetarian, celebrities, trendsetting young eaters with sophisticated palates to the mature diner seeking gourmet health supportive cuisine.


Ann has filmed 52 episodes of a half-hour cooking show called Naturally Delicious with Ann Gentry, which airs on the Veria channel on The Dish Network and Verizon FIOS.  Ann has also appeared on a multitude of television shows, including the Today Show, TV Guide show, and several shows on the Discovery Channel most recently, as a celebrity chef host on Planet Green/Supper Club.  She has also appeared on the Food Network in several of their shows, most notably on Bobby Flay’s Food Nation.
Ann’s first cookbook, The Real Food Daily Cookbook was published by Ten Speed Press, in October 2005.  Her second book, entitled Vegan Family Meals, Real Food for Everyone published by Andrews McMeel is available now.
