In a move that has set the culinary blogosphere ablaze, Roy Choi, a chef arguably best known for his Kogi Korean BBQ street food, has announced that he is now a vegetarian who will no longer eat animals. Well, sort of.

On his blog, Choi, a former Culinary Institute of America valedictorian, admits he’s been thinking about leaving cooking for a while because it no longer holds meaning for him. He writes “I stopped eating meat this week. That’s why I’m thinking about leaving cooking. How can I cook without using meat? I will taste, for now as that is my profession. But I will no longer eat meat for my own consumption. Animals be talking to me. They told me..stop. Stop, Roy. Please.”

Choi also claims he wants to meet with Jamie Oliver, the British chef working to shift unhealthy diets and cooking in the UK and America, writing “anyone who reads this tell him to holla at me. Really. I can’t get to him. Tell him come see me, no PR, no publicist, no barriers. We can sit on the curb and join forces.”
