Yasmine Nazmy is a French-Egyptian food lover and creator of unique healthy recipes. With a background in arts and environmental engineering, she founded a restaurant in 2014 with a friend: The Vegan Kitchen. It was Egypt’s first vegan and organic restaurant, serving delicious food free of sugar and gluten. A year later, she expanded her horizons and started a catering service named Earthly Delights, following the same trend of healthy plant-based cuisine. Shortly after, she founded KAJU, a line of raw vegan products such as ice cream and cheese. Her creations were then available to be ordered online - her aim was to make healthy natural food accessible to people all over the country. Over the years, she taught numerous cooking workshops across the capital, and also helped people transition to a plant-based diet, lose weight and stop using toxic chemicals.
