Tal Ronnen on Extra

Vegan chef and author of The Conscious Cook appears on entertainment news program Extra

This week, entertainment news program Extra caught up with veg chef Tal Ronnen to discuss plant-based cuisine and address vegan diet myths. The program featured Ronnen during its "life changers" segment with Extra correspondent Kathy Freston, praising Ronnen's approach to hearty meat-free fare and spotlighting his new cookbook—and VN's 2009 Book of the Year—The Conscious Cook. The compassionate chef debunked three common plant-based diet myths: vegan food is tasteless, expensive, and isn't filling. Ronnen, who Oprah recently named her favorite vegan chef, explained that veg food is rich in flavor and protein, and that meat is a more expensive grocery-store purchase than fruits and vegetables.
