Pete Evans has been the #1 selling Australian health and wholefood author for the past three years. He is an award-winning chef, restaurateur, author, TV presenter, health coach, adventure seeker and father. Born in Melbourne and raised on the Gold Coast, Pete Evans is one of Australia's leading authorities on healthy cooking and lifestyle.
Pete began his career as a chef and restaurateur at the age of 19, opening numerous restaurants, including the award-winning Hugo's, as well as cooking in some of the finest restaurants globally. Since then, Pete's career has moved from the kitchen into the lounge room, with many TV appearances including on Lifestyle Channel's Postcards from Home, FISH and Moveable Feast. Pete is currently co-host of Channel 7's hugely successful show My Kitchen Rules and the host of his own series The Paleo Way. He is also executive producer of the documentary The Magic Pill.
Despite his fast-paced career, Pete is a simple guy at heart. He loves his family, the ocean, surfing and maintaining his own healthy lifestyle. When he switched to a paleo way of living, an abundance of mental, physical, and emotional changes followed. This paved the way for Pete's belief that food can be medicine, and that it should be our first port of call for a healthier life.
As a certified health coach, Pete is dedicated to improving people's lives through education about nutritional food and wellness.
