Right at the time when corona started, Irene was looking for a place to start her own vegan caterer business. She had to abandon the original plans, but by chance got the opportunity to start out from an already existing kitchen. The beginning of Peach Plantbased Kitchen, operating since November 2020 out of the kitchen of Robin Food. She’s running it with two others.
Before this she was working in disability care and part-time studying, which she gave up to pursue her dream of setting up her own kitchen.
Irene grew up as a vegetarian but was eating practically vegan already. The meals she creates for Peach are fully vegan, as well as whole foods, meaning she avoids using processed foods. “I always start from vegetables,” she tells. Using seasonal vegetables, preferably local, and sometimes even picked in the wild!
The meals from Peach are available every weekend, multiple dishes to choose from. New menu every week, a reservation is obligatory so to avoid food waste.
And the name? A reference to a song by her favourite artist Prince, as well as her fondness for the colour ‘peach’. Irene considers the current location as temporary, and is looking out for a permanent spot in Amsterdam Noord!
