The Story of Veggie Magnifique

We’re Ann and Chloe.

We met a fine spring day in Paris, in a voiceover studio, doing background ADR voices for a French blockbuster. Ann the American Idealist, Chloe the English Rose.

We soon found that we both had an insatiable passion for healthy plant-based food, Paris, music, and living a kind life. After many, many cups of tea, heartfelt discussions, and masterminding sessions, we decided that we needed to join forces to do our part to make this world a better place for all of us… and Veggie Magnifique was born.

Well, not right away.

It look a year and a half of dreaming and scheming, creating and collaborating. Many questions were posed about the best way to really make a difference, find our voice, share our passion and enthusiasm, and connect with others with similar goals of well-being and loving-kindness.  It became clear that a Paris wellness portal was in need, but one that was upbeat, glamorous, savvy, and simple.

We don’t pretend to have all the answers, but we are committed to seeking the truth, and above all, practicing benevolence and kindness toward all of creation… including the animals, the planet, and also ourselves. We believe that one of the kindest things you can do for yourself is to consume vibrant, nutrient-dense foods, and prioritize taking care of yourself, so that you can, then, take care of others and the world. The ripple effect is real, so let’s make some waves.

We sincerely hope our delicious, healthy recipes and holistic health tips tickle your fancy, but most importantly, improve your quality of life.

Since creating Veggie Magnifique, we have been featured on the blog Baci di Dama, and have partnered with Global Potential, Ubuntu France, presenting and catering plant-based meals, and also have held healthy baking workshops at 5 Lorette and MyKitch’n Paris. If you’re interested in having a Veggie Magnifique meal or presentation at your next event, email us at hello [a] veggiemagnifique.com

Ann Christine 

is no one-trick pony. Singer, voiceover artist, visionary, and health coach, this feisty firecracker never tires of spreading the message of love and vitality. A quirky-pants from the get-go, Ann grew up just south of Seattle, USA, where she did an inordinate amount of tree climbing and tap dancing. After studying Film and French at Chapman University, and spending way too many unsatisfying years in Los Angeles, she realized there was more to life and finally skipped over the pond. After finding a marvelous and fulfilling life in Paris, Ann then went on to study holistic nutrition at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (learn more here), and became “The Wellness Artist.” When Ann isn’t singing or creating artistic content, she delights in talking Dharma over fine Japanese tea, bathing in whimsy, and traveling the world. {Visit Ann’s artistic website to learn more.}

Chloe Dunn 

is a violinist, voiceover artist and theatre actress from Cambridge, England. She is above all a nature lover and spends much of her time frolicking in fields of green in the French countryside, admiring the local flora and fauna and making homemade tinctures and cosmetics out of wild-crafted herbs. Chloe popped over to Paris in 2005, straight out of a degree in Literature at Durham University, for what was meant to be a weekend holiday. But that weekend somehow extended to over a decade…  A lifelong vegetarian, Chloe loves raw ‘un’-cooking, unpronounceable Amazonian superfoods, long distance running, and bad jokes. She believes in love, oneness, and raw chocolate. {Visit Chloe’s pro site to learn more.}
