From the Golden Globes to Dunkin’ Donuts, from Burger King to Starbucks, the world is waking up to the benefits of a plant-based diet for the climate, human health and the animals. Now, the skyrocketing trend toward plant-based eating is hitting television with a first-of-its-kind vegan cooking show!
For vegans and/or those wanting to switch to plant based food, this program will be supportive in offering recipes, the support of many famous vegans and lots of new information about plant based food.
New Day New Chef is an entertaining, fast-paced cooking show set to air on Public Television stations throughout the nation and is now available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
New Day New Chef is hosted by New York Times bestselling author and former CNN Headline News (HLN) host Jane Velez-Mitchell, who is well-known for advocating a vegan lifestyle. Season one features eight episodes of fun, delicious, easy vegan recipes, such as a tantalizing tower of triple-decker veggie burgers, Spicy Stuffed Italian Peppers and a Superwoman bowl of well massaged kale. Love eggs? We show you how to make eggless, zero-cholesterol, deviled eggs that will be a hit at any party!
“In this New Day of climate and health consciousness, anyone can be a New Chef, and we’ll show you how,” said Eamonn McCrystal, multi-Emmy Award winner and Executive Producer of New Day New Chef. “There’s a new appetite for plant-based food, and we’re serving recipes and information to a large, curious community of foodies and home cooks who want to put their ethics on their plate.”
Each episode features a different celebrity co-host, new chefs and a fresh panel of taste testers eager to sample delicious dishes. From Olympic medalists to movie stars, from muscular body builders to sinewy yoga masters, New Day New Chef entertains Americans while helping them reinvent their diets, boost their energy, lower their carbon footprints and transform their lives with a simple switch to plant-based foods.
