Plant-based meats and meal options are huge these days, with brands like Impossible, Morningstar, and Beyond Meat. And our guest today was part of the early days of these meat products.

Dave Anderson is a seasoned chef with a knack for transforming plant-based ingredients into masterpieces of bold flavor and tantalizing texture. His wizardry in the kitchen has drawn regulars like Bill Gates, Paul McCartney, and Ellen Degeneres to his award-winning California restaurant. You could say he's kind of a big deal.

After being named “Best plant-based restaurant in Los Angeles," Dave moved to sharing his talents with the masses by leading product development for Beyond Meat, where he produced plant-based products so bold they’re sold in the grocery store meat aisle (perhaps you’ve heard of the Beyond Burger?). He also co-founded Hampton Creek, furthering his dream of making great-tasting plant-based foods available to everyone.

Listen as Dave shares his journey from music school to the kitchen, innovating the plant-based meat space, and why he focuses now on creating healthy snack options.
