What the heck is Vegan Mashup?
Delicious TV’s Vegan Mashup is a cooking show for everyone. But it’s more than a cooking show. It's a new way to learn about food. And there is nothing like it on public television. We’ve made 2 seasons, a total of 12 episodes that have already aired over 17,000 times on public television in 45 U.S. states. We are working on Season 3 to begin airing on public television stations January 2016. We need finishing funds for color correction, closed captioning, HD television masters, satellite feeds, and “Hey hey, we’re back with new episodes” promo postcards.
Here's a trailer from season two to check out while we work on the upcoming third season.
And a video from the producer.
Why is it so awesome?
It's cooked up with not just one but a pantry full of talented cooks and authors.
Toni Fiore lives in Maine and has hosted several Delicious TV projects, including Delicious TV’s Totally Vegetarian which has aired over 55,000 times on public television. Terry Hope Romero lives in NYC and is the author of bestselling vegan cookbooks Veganomicon, Vegan Eats World, Salad Samurai and many more. Terry also presents informative and lively cooking demonstrations around the globe. Miyoko Schinner lives in the Bay Area of San Francisco and has authored several cookbooks including Artisan Vegan Cheese and The Homemade Vegan Pantry. She recently launched Miyoko’s Kitchen, a new artisan vegan cheese company.
Why is it different than an internet cooking show?
Internet shows are great. And we're available online. It's public television though where more people like your former co-worker, mom or neighbor, unfamiliar with healthy, plant-based eating, will stumble upon the show flipping the channels one random day. Next thing you know - BOOM! - mom is cooking up a scrumptious vegan supper for you all to enjoy!
We hear repeatedly from parents who watch the show with their kids. And even kids who get their parents to watch it with them! We are committed to engaging diverse viewers and those viewers who are limited by income.
What will I learn if I already know how to make a salad and spaghetti?
Compared to the very few kinds of animals on earth that humans eat (maybe 20 including dogs), there are 300,000 plants. You’re going to learn about new dishes, flavors, vegetables, sauces, condiments, and more.
By swapping out simple ingredients and veganizing popular dishes without any loss of flavor and texture, these chefs prove it takes only a small shift to make a huge difference. Encouraging viewers to start such a transition by incorporating these recipes into their meal plans makes it clear that change doesn’t need to be “all-or-nothing” to be powerful.
Everyone starts somewhere — the point is to … start!

Risks and challenges
With two seasons under our belts, we feel confident about delivering another great new season and batch of rewards for our campaign. We have a lot of experience, energy and an incredible team on both sides of the camera. As usual, we need a lot more financial assistance to transform and transport the show from our computer to television.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
