Over the last couple of months, I’ve noticed lots of vegan food mentions popping up all over the mainstream media. It has become increasingly common to see vegan recipes and books presented in a positive light, right alongside those that feature meat, dairy products, and eggs. Here are just a few recent vegan mentions I’ve noticed:
•Vegan Sashimi Wins on Top Chef: In the “Quickfire Challenge” judged by Daniel Boulud, Dale won with vegan sashimi that showcased his knife skills.
•Epicurious Tours Moby’s Kitchen: In a short video series, Moby gives a tour of his kitchen, talks about his favorite kitchen equipment, and makes vegan blueberry pancakes.
•‘Knit Night’ Cupcakes on Martha Stewart: VeganYumYum is without a doubt one of the best food blogs out there, and its creator was even invited to make her “Knit Night” cupcakes on The Martha Stewart Show back in February.
•Heather Mills to Host Vegan Cooking Show: Also announced in February is that Heather Mills, ex-wife of Sir Paul McCartney, has landed her own cooking show, and it will be all vegan. I don’t know when or where it will air, but you can read a few more details here.
This is just a short list of vegan food news, and of course, it doesn’t include any James Beard nomination for a vegetarian cookbook, or the vegetarian recipes that pop up in Gourmet magazine often.
Please let me know if you have other veg food news items to add to the list!
