Founder of Farmacy / Author of Farmacy Kitchen, UK
Camilla Fayed is the originator and founder of Farmacy. Having always been passionate about healthy eating and conscious living, Camilla began her journey into the world of plant-based living after the birth of her first child. Having immediately experienced the powerful healing benefits of a plant-based lifestyle herself, following extensive research and travels, Camilla was inspired to create Farmacy; a place where she could share her philosophy on nutrition and help bring the conscious eating revolution to London. Camilla’s aim with Farmacy, was to make healthy eating fun, in a beautiful setting. Since its launch in April 2016, the flagship Notting Hill restaurant and bar, has become renowned for its innovative and delicious organic dishes, as well as it’s exciting array of choice plant-based comfort foods. Labelled as the ‘friendly face’ of plant-based eating in London - Farmacy champions the notion that ‘food is medicine’ and supports both local farming and sustainability. Under Camilla’s direction, the Farmacy team work hard to constantly experiment and evolve. Along with the regular introduction of new seasonal dishes and superfood ingredients to the menu, last summer, Camilla and her executive chef team created London’s first 100% plant-based, CBD themed afternoon tea offering - an instant success. This January, Camilla launched her first, semi-permanent, Farmacy pop-up shot bar, at Selfridges, as part of their #EatHappy campaign. Camilla has spoken at several conscious living related events and debates and last November acted as the UK’s plant-based spokesperson on BBC Worldwide, as part of a debate dedicated to World Vegan Day. Passionate and committed to biodynamic farming and permaculture, in May 2017 Camilla, launched the ‘Farmacy Kitchen Garden’ - a biodynamic plot of land in Kent, previously dedicated to growing food for just her family that she expanded to become the restaurant’s dedicated local supplier. The produce from the garden is delivered weekly to the restaurant in an electric van. Following the release of the Farmacy Kitchen cookbook this Summer, Camilla is keen to open several other Farmacy restaurant sites across London and expand the brand worldwide.
