Roots Kitchen (formerly Roots of Health) is owned and operated by husband and wife team, nutritionist Kerri Cooper & chef Sean MacFayden.
A self-trained cook, Kerri worked as a personal chef for families and couples in their homes throughout Toronto for over 5 years while building her holistic nutrition practice. She began offering meal delivery options to her nutrition clients as an add-on service. Cooking in her roommate’s home in Kensington market, she would gather the ingredients in the morning from the market shop keepers, prepare, cook and deliver meals to a small group of loyal customers that same evening. This slowly grew into one of the first meal delivery businesses in Toronto. Kerri left nutrition consulting for the kitchen full-time in 2013.
When Sean came on board in 2013, he quickly put his lifetime of experience and natural creativity to work helping take RK to the next level. Sean has worked in kitchens both in Toronto and London, England for over a decade and was head chef at Butchers of Distinction from 2014-2018. You can find one of his savoury pies from the butcher shop featured in Toronto Life magazine.
Over the past 7 years, business has grown completely organically through word of mouth. Everything is cooked in small batches, using ingredients purchased from farmers, butchers and food suppliers they know and trust.
Their goal is to deliver high quality, delicious and soulful meals, support local & organic farmers and re-connect people to one another over a shared meal.
Roots of Health is now based in Prince Edward County and delivers to homes and businesses across Toronto, Belleville and Prince Edward County.
