Brett first set up in March 2016 as an Instagram page to show that vegan food could be tasty, vibrant and desirable to vegans and non vegans alike. He quickly learned of the strong and welcoming vegan community on Instagram and continued to post new and exciting food pictures daily. Brett soon came to realise that this would not be enough and people were keen to get involved and try these dishes for themselves, and so, Epivegan youtube was born December 2016.
