On September 27th, 2015 The Naked Bite catered a meal for former Vice President Al Gore and The Climate Reality Project. This event was a fundraiser devoted to solving our climate crisis and was entirely plant-based. The evening began with passed hors d’oeuvres and was followed by a three course meal and compelling speech given my Mr. Gore. He spoke about what is happening with climate change and what we can do to help. I was even asked unexpectedly to give my own speech about The Naked Bite and the inspiration for the meal. Being that it is late summer in South Florida, the seasonal produce pickings are slim, but I was committed to sourcing as local as possible. Of course, highlighting the integrity of plants and how easy it is to substitute for meat in some of your weekly meals.
This was such an honor to be selected for such a special evening and to have the opportunity to showcase the type of food that really inspires me. The impact that we are able to have on the planet by making event small adjustments to our diet is incredible. This is a huge reason why I am committed to help changing peoples diets, one NAKED bite at a time!
