Top Five Vegetarian Cooking Shows
People often complain that there aren’t enough vegetarian or vegan cooking shows on television, and some have even started a petition to get one onto the Food Network, but to those people I say, “Get over it.” By doing a quick online search, you can find many options to suit a variety of personalities. To break it down and help you find the show that’s right for you, I’ve compared each host to those famous Food Network stars we all know and love.
- The Post Punk Kitchen: Host Isa Chandra Moskowitz is the Duff of vegan food shows. Both bakers are clever, funny, and rebellious, and not only do they create beautiful desserts, they look like they’re having fun while doing it.
- Everyday Dish: The attractive sets and clear instructions make this show one of my favorites, just like Giada’s.
- The Traveling Vegetarian: The host visits restaurants across the country and tempts us with vegetarian menu items, chats with the owners, and gives us a tour of each restaurant. Sort of the Rachael Ray of the veg food world.
- The Eazy Vegan: Jason hosts the straightforward instructional videos and reminds me of a much less annoying version of Alton Brown.
- Totally Vegetarian on Delicious TV: This is the show you should have your mom or grandmother watch if you’re trying to convince her to go vegetarian. Chef Toni is warm, friendly, and easy to follow, just like Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa.
After watching clips from each of these shows, I have realized it is time for me to jump on the cooking show bandwagon, and I see a video post in my future. If you know of any good shows I overlooked, please share a link here!
