Anthony Zolezzi is an eco-entrepreneur, consultant, author and organic food advocate whose understanding of the natural world goes back to summers spent aboard his family’s commercial fishing boat as a teenager. Later, while working for a major food company, a farmer’s warning not to eat a pesticide-sprayed strawberry made him realize that the soil harbors an ecosystem much like that of the sea, which is critically important to maintaining the nutritional benefits of food. Along with this revelation came an awareness of the effects that poisons designed to kill its essential organisms are having on our food and our bodies. He now shares the knowledge he has gained – along with his passion for cooking, serving and celebrating real food – with as many people as possible. Anthony Zolezzi is part of the Wild Oats team.
