Chef Elizabeth Johnson’s mission to heal through food
With a lifelong passion for global cooking and holistically nourishing the body through food, Chef Elizabeth Johnson’s rich background reflects her complementary philosophies at her restaurant Pharm Table in San Antonio. The James Beard Foundation referred to Johnson as a “Food is Medicine guru,” and as such she considers the name Pharm Table a synonym for culinary medicine.
Johnson’s extensive studies and travels have culminated in a dream to bring the best healthy global food practices to plate, bowl and cup. The path to Pharm Table started with a lifelong passion for the cuisines of the Americas. As a native San Antonian, she has also come to appreciate and honor the region’s heritage foods, combining knowledge of her global travels and education as well as local research.
Through her restaurant concept, Johnson serves as a powerful change advocate, seeking to address and alleviate the current stressors on mind, body and society. These include mitigating chronic inflammation, eating in season and curbing food waste, all based in a food and dining experience that is consistently delicious and fun.
