Is there a vegan cooking show coming to the Food Network?
A new petition calls on the Food Network to host a vegan cooking show. Created by a non-profit organization Animal Rights Movement (FARM), the Change.org petition states that while the Food Network airs more than 385 programs, it does not offer a fully vegan program for a growing population of plant eaters. In addition to the petition, FARM has reached out to celebrities and producers on the Food Network to demand that the network launch a vegan cooking show.
“With all the talented vegan chefs, there is no shortage of people who would take the chance to host and share their vegan recipes,” explains the petition. “With all of the plant-based options replacing virtually every ingredient, the chances that a vegan program will be successful are very high and the recipes endless.”
Vegan cooking shows
There are currently several vegan chefs who have landed their own cooking shows on digital and TV channels. Last year, vegan chef Omari McQueen landed his own show on CBBC – a children’s channel operated by the BBC What is Omari cooking ?; Vegan chefs from Los Angeles have appeared on the show of the vegan cooking competition High kitchen, which debuted on Amazon Prime Video; and vegan influencer and actress Tabitha Brown got her own show All love on the Ellen Digital Network, a digital media platform created by television personality Ellen DeGeneres and the Warner Bros Digital Networks.
