About

Candice Hutchings

The Edgy Veg is a delicious vegan and vegetarian movement catering to the forward-thinking meal-creators of the often-boring veg community.

It is a channel on a journey to revolutionize the food we define as “vegan”. Instead of salads and smoothies, Candice Hutchings & James Aita choose to re-purpose familiar favorites, by recreating childhood cravings for an audience with sophisticated palettes and food-nerd obsessions. Decadent desserts, trendy dishes, and fast food favourites– nothing is off-limits and everything is vegan. 

Love food porn? Watch Candice and James on their popular YouTube show by the same name, and follow along as they teach their subscribers how to make their lives more compassionate using the power of culinary expression. New episodes every Monday!

Is reading more your thing? Check out their library of online recipes and food hacks that serve as an inspiration for a new generation of vegan food artists. Every recipe can be enjoyed by vegans, vegetarians and omnivores alike–they’re Carnivore Approved!
