7 Skills for the Future


Innovation, Food and Integrity

Season 9, Ep. 8

This week, Emma Sue speaks to Verity De Yong. After spending more time cooking at home during lockdown, Verity noticed how much waste was being produced. Using her background in fine art, Verity began experimenting with the skins of fruits and vegetables to create natural dye. This has led to the creation of VED Cooks - a range of linen napkins, table cloths and placemats hand dyed by Verity in her kitchen. Verity tells her fascinating story and offers helpful advice to entrepreneurs at the start of their journey. 

PIVOT: Whilst cooking more in lockdown Verity founded her new business.
