In Conversation with… Tammy Fry

Businesswoman turned blogger, Tammy Fry, cooks up a treat in our PlantBased Kitchen as we speak to her about all things plant based

As we wander through the beautiful and scenic woodland area surrounding PlantBased HQ, the sun is shining and we joke about the difference in the weather between this — a typically pleasant Autumnal day — and the scorching hot of the Aussie sun Tammy has arrived from.

Just as we’re about to start the interview, we spot a blackberry bush and each grab a few to eat now, before filling a bag with a few for later on.

We start discussing Tammy’s upbringing and how she went vegetarian from such a young age — aged just two.

“I had a really staunch, meat-eating father,” she says, “but luckily my mother was vegetarian. Meat was never forced on me, whereas I think many people are forced into eating meat because of the ‘you’ll eat what is on your plate’ attitude. I had the choice as a child and I think that if most people had that choice and they knew the truth, they would make the same choice as me.”

Tammy Fry is probably best known for her surname — due to the highly successful meat-free and entirely plant based global brand Fry’s started by her parents. The brand is now a second generation family business and is still enjoyed around the world by those wanting a delicious alternative to meat.

About PlantBased

As we move onto Issue 2 of PlantBased, we have enjoyed receiving such amazing feedback from the first issue. The positivity surrounding the launch was infectious and we’ve particularly loved hearing from excited people who had never considered plant based eating before picking up the mag, but are now joining the food revolution as a result of reading it. November means winter is officially on its way. In the office at PBHQ that means our tea and coffee habit has been taken up a notch (though, if I’m honest, we’ve barely stopped all summer anyway) and it also means that I have now got an excuse to dig out my much-loved and rapidly growing collection of jumpers to keep me warm as the temperature drops. The chillier weather calls for warming and hearty meals and this issue shouldn’t disappoint. We have our Essential Guide to soul-satisfying soups [page 54] including the delicious and striking beetroot soup you will have noticed on the cover, plus we show that salad can be for winter too, with our Winter Salads recipe section [from page 30]. This month, we were also really thrilled to have Tammy Fry (of the Fry’s meat-free meat fame) in our PlantBased Kitchen cooking up a Thai Green treat. Travelling from Australia, Tammy only had time to stay for the morning, but I could have spoken to her for hours — the achievements she’s accomplished and the passion she shows for turning the whole world plant based really struck a chord and I spent the rest of the day feeling extremely inspired. Have a fantastic November and we will see you next month for a Christmas issue that you won’t want to miss out on.
