About the speaker
In 2014 Chef Elizabeth Johnson created Pharm Table as a synonym for culinary medicine. Pharm Table’s cuisine focuses on food as medicine, taking its inspiration from eastern traditions like Ayruveda, as well as National Geographic’s Blue Zones research focusing on longevity and nutrition. The restaurant’s local seasonal approach to cooking is unique in that health and wellness is the end result and viewed through an entirely anti-inflammatory lens.
