Chef Nadine Nelson, the Green Queen of Cuisine, is the sustainable chef and social entrepreneur/activist of Global Local Gourmet, a roving community-supported kitchen specializing in experiential epicurean occasions that cook up delicious adventures far from expected yet close to home in the form of cooking classes, culinary tours, culinary team building events, wellness workshops and pop up events. Chef Nadine is from Toronto, Canada considered the most multicultural city in the world. She is of Jamaican Heritage and likes to combine global flavors with local ingredients sharing her knowledge of ethnic flavors that are underrepresented in culinary education.
