In Memory of Chef Bette Elizabeth Drew

Chef Bette

Our beloved chef and dearest friend Bette Elizabeth Drew passed away Saturday, June 2, 2012.

Bette was a tremendously giving and loving soul. She dedicated her life to her spiritual pursuits as well as sharing her talents as a vegetarian chef with the world.

Bette tirelessly and selflessly served the community in a multitude of ways. Whether she was giving a cooking class at a local library or spending countless hours compiling her many recipes for this site, Bette lived her life with great passion and zeal!

My wife and I were blessed to have known Bette for over 12 years. She showed us so much love; cooking us special treats, opening our hearts and minds to the wonders of vegetarianism, and sharing her wonderful stories.

We were so sad to hear of Bette's passing but are grateful that a piece of her lives through this wonderful site. I am forever thankful that I had the opportunity to play a small role in helping her launch in 2007, making her recipes available to the world!

Please continue to visit the site and think of Chef Bette when you do. As you prepare a dish using one of Bette's recipes, do it lovingly with passion and zeal...that would surely put a smile on Bette's lovely face.

With love,
