What the world needs: a vegan food channel
Has anyone seen Vegan Mash-up on PBS? I feel like I am late to the party, having only just heard about this today. I'm going to have to check my local PBS affiliates -- the web site doesn't seem to have any information about where and when the show is airing.
I must admit that one of my guilty pleasures is the Food Network, but the meatfulness really gets on my nerves. If it's really gross I have to turn it off, but even when it isn't overtly disgusting, it's a lot of "Well, I would never make that . . . or that . . . or that . . ." Seeing a vegan baker on Cupcake Wars every once in a while is no substitute for a real vegan cooking show. Or how about a vegan version of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives? With someone less annoying than Guy Fieri (it shouldn't be hard to find someone less annoying than Guy Fieri, right?). Or a vegan version of Unwrapped? This week, we visit the Turtle Island factory and watch Tofurky being made! Next week, Dandies marshmallows! That would be awesome. I love factory tours.
