McQueen is believed to be the youngest person in the world to manage a restaurant, following the launch of his vegan pop-up in Croydon last year.

The young entrepreneur also runs his own dipping sauce company — Dipalicious Dips — which he started four years ago.


His publishing manager, Leah James, has called him “inspirational.”

“At just 12 years old, he has achieved so much,” she said.

“His passion for food and cooking is irresistible. Children everywhere have been busy learning to cook during lockdown; we can’t wait for Omari to share his recipes, tips and enthusiasm with a generation of children and their families.”

McQueen’s mom has shared that he went vegan at the age of eight, after discovering the cruelty involved in farming animals for food.
