Vegan Cooking Show to Air on PBS This Fall

Vegan Mashup, produced by Delicious TV, will feature recipes from an all-star array of vegan experts.

Filming is complete for a new vegan cooking show scheduled to air on PBS stations across the country this fall. Vegan Mashup will feature some of the movement’s biggest names, including cookbook author and VN columnist Terry Hope Romero, cookbook author Miyoko Schinner, and Totally Vegetarian host Toni Fiore. Each of the first season’s six episodes will center on a theme—breakfast, teen-friendly meals, and cheap eats are all tackled this season. Earlier this year, Delicious TV, the production team behind the program, turned to community fundraising platform Indiegogo to raise $40,000 for the project. Though this goal wasn’t met, the $2,666 raised was sufficient to serve as seed money, which was further bolstered by sponsorships from animal-welfare and veg organizations.
