A Fervor For (Good) Food
Julie and David raised their family on beautiful Bainbridge Island, spending countless hours cooking together and dreaming of owning a restaurant. One of their deepest values is knowing where their food comes from which is why they are dedicated to not only growing, but also processing and preserving much of the food they eat themselves, and that which they share with others.
Julie is the mover and shaker behind Zest. With over 40 years as a vegetarian and 30 years in the healing arts and sciences, Julie is committed to helping others attain a healthy lifestyle. Well known on Bainbridge as Dr. Julie, she has also been providing “Best of Bainbridge” chiropractic care to many island and off island residents since 1994.
In her new role as the catalyst at Zest, Julie is excited to expand the way she offers whole-body health to our community. “It’s hard to separate my love for cooking from my love for feeding others. I’m always one of the first to volunteer for the meal train in our community, but what do you expect? I’m a Jewish mother, feeding people is one of the ways we show our love.”
Nourishing, vegan, comfort food
The focus of Zest is on freshness, quality, and taste. We aim to foster healthy and intentional relationships with food, not only for residents here but for the extended community of Kitsap County. Our food is our way of life; our passion and zeal for delicious, wholesome foods are tangible in everything we create. Health-conscious vegan food has always been hard to come by on the island, and here at Zest we aim to change that. By bringing this sentiment to life in a food truck, it allows us to cater to everyone, anywhere.
We are proud to be members of the Bainbridge Island community and look forward to getting to know you!
Zest is excited to be able to provide you delicious vegan food from the comfort of your own event. Our truck is self-contained and therefore requires no assistance or accommodations from the host, and can easily be set up at any location.
