On Thursday, December 9, The Food Network’s Cooking Channel will air The Veg Edge, a special program that will feature a fully vegan Portland segment that is likely to include Portland food-carts and restaurants such as Homegrown Smoker, Native Bowl, Blossoming Lotus, and Portobello, as well as Food Fight! Grocery. The Portland segment is hosted by cookbook author Isa Chandra Moskowitz. The program also highlights veg businesses and features vegans and vegetarians in other locations including Austin, Los Angeles, Seattle, and New York. “Vegetarians are fascinating people, and good television,” producer Scott Galloway told VegNews. Galloway says that the Food Network approached its sister channel Cooking Channel in response to the growing movement of vegetarianism in the US.
