Del Sroufe's passion for cooking began at eight years old and never faded. In 1989 he went to work for one of Columbus' premier vegetarian restaurants, the King Avenue Coffeehouse, where he honed his craft as a baker and chef. Sroufe opened Del's Bread, a vegan bakery, before beginning vegan meal delivery service in 2001, serving eclectic plant-based cuisine to Columbus residents. During this time, he developed what became a very popular cooking class series, sharing many of the delicious recipes he had created over the years. In 2006, Sroufe joined Wellness Forum Foods as co-owner and chef, where he continued the tradition of delivering great tasting, plant-based meals to clients in Columbus as well as throughout the continental U.S. Sroufe also joined The Wellness Forum as a member where, after a lifetime of yo-yo dieting, he has lost over 200 pounds on a low fat, plant-based diet. He continues to teach cooking classes at local venues like Whole Foods, Community Recreation Centers, and The Wellness Forum. Sroufe is the author of "Forks Over Knives--The Cookbook," a vegan cookbook companion to the acclaimed documentary "Forks Over Knives." Glen Merzer is coauthor with Pamela A. Popper, PhD, ND, of "Food Over Medicine," with Howard Lyman of "Mad Cowboy," with Howard Lyman and Joanna Samorow-Merzer of "No More Bull!," and with Chef AJ of "Unprocessed." Merzer is also a playwright and screenwriter, having most recently completed a screenplay from "Mad Cowboy." He has been a vegetarian for 40 years and a vegan for the last 20.
