The Veg Edge Makes an Encore

Julie Hasson and Native Bowl food truck in Portland.

Cooking Channel special The Veg Edge shows vegetarians and vegans — food truck owners, chefs and restaurateurs — as adventurous, flavor-loving food people rather then the rabbit food-gnawing, red paint-on-fur-throwing, protein-deficient activists some people consider them to be.

When we first announced the show on our Facebook page, a pretty healthy debate was sparked about the merits of a meat-free lifestyle (and a cooking show dedicated to it). Here are some highlights:

Jesse Lynne: I seriously can’t wait, I’m going on 3 years of being a veg-head and i was wishing for a cooking show just for vegetarians! THANK YOU!!!!!

Nickolas A Gavalas II: Thus far the show has been very informative … not that I would completely go to a vegetarian diet, but by just adding more vegetables and some vegetarian meals to my diet has helped with blood sugar control and maintaining a healthy weight. And that’s good. 

Raymond Torres: What a waste. A whole series of shows revolving around a useless endeavor. Thank God for progressive chefs like Anthony Bourdain. 

Lisa Buenaventura Rice: It’s about time! I am a big fan of the Food Network and now the Cooking Channel, but get SO frustrated that the vegan/vegetarian chefs are not represented at all. PLEASE ad some vegan cooking shows! There are so many great chefs out there!

So passionate are these veggie-lovers, that one viewer wrote an open letter to Cooking Channel asking for more meatless programming.

The special is re-airing tonight at 9pm ET/ 8pm CT, and again at 1am ET.

Where do you stand on the debate? Is vegetarianism a lifestyle you choose, or are you more of a Meatless Monday fan? What about veganism — the ultimate health choice or too extreme? Should there be more cooking shows dedicated to special diets?
