Vegan Mashup: If Your Best Friend Were a Cookbook
Vegan Mashup is Delicious TV’s new and fabulous vegan cooking series. Starring three hit cookbook authors and often featuring an exciting guest chef, Vegan Mashup aims to make veggie food accessible to all. From bright beginners to veggie vets, the show has recipes and cooking tips for every taste, skill-level, and budget. (We’re talking to you, multitasking moms and courageous college students!) We're seeking funds to plan and shoot season 2.
So far Vegan Mashup has aired 3 times a week on 212 public television stations, available to millions of people. It features unique and classic recipes taught by friendly veggie experts. And will soon be available online.

Your Support Creates Healthy, Compassionate Meals
Veggie-friendly folks are skilled at making the connection between the food we eat and the world we live in. We know every meal is a choice to care – about our health, the animals, and the earth.
What doesn’t come as naturally is knowing how to eat veggie in a meat-centric world. Whether cooking for one or feeding a family, it can be challenging to create meals that are healthy, fast, and fun on a daily basis.
Vegan Mashup wants to change that. We want to support every individual and family in their quest to incorporate healthy, compassionate food into their life.
We’re Winning the Flavor Battle
Arm yourself against last-minute takeout and “this again?” groans: on Vegan Mashup, classics like pizza, burgers, and BBQ become I-can’t-believe-this-is-good-for-me veggie delights.
Looking to wow ‘em with something different? Unique flavors and surprising combinations are here – complicated instructions that the average person can’t tackle are not!

Risks and challenges
One of our biggest challenges is scheduling the chefs, and guests. After that it's sourcing the crew, and equipment in each location. We're chomping at the bit for this challenge, and see it as a great opportunity to meet new people in front of, and behind the camera. If scheduling issues do arise, we will work to reschedule the chef, or guest, and in a wost case scenario, we'll find another talented chef to book on the show. The same goes for the crew & locations.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
