Pamela Anderson to Host New Vegan Cooking Show
For decades, iconic activist and actor Pamela Anderson has used her star power to help raise awareness about the plight of animals used for food, entertainment, and fashion. She’s been instrumental in getting plant-based meals in public schools and pushing for vegan food in prisons. Now, Anderson will host her own vegan cooking show, tentatively titled Pamela’s Cooking with Love.
The show will reportedly begin filming in summer 2023 and air on Food Network Canada in 2024. The eight-episode series will feature Anderson as she cooks with various chefs and prepares plant-based meals for friends and family.
Anderson’s show will seemingly be available only for Canadian audiences and not until next year. In the meantime, here are just a few of the other great vegan cooking series to binge:
Actor and author Mena Massoud will host a new plant-based cooking and travel show, set to premiere on March 30, 2023. Inspired by Massoud’s book and online community of the same name, Evolving Vegan will feature special guest appearances, delicious dishes, and the flourishing vegan food scenes in six cities throughout North America. The show will air on Canadian networks CTV Life Channel and Crave.
Vegan influencer, entrepreneur, actor, and New York Times bestselling author Tabitha Brown hosts It’s CompliPlated, a series in which four chefs compete in three rounds of cooking challenges with the goal of pleasing judge Maneet Chauhan and a panel of guest judges. Each judge has unique tastes and food requirements, which gives the chefs the daunting task of creating a feast that will please everyone involved. It’s CompliPlated is available on Food Network and streams on Discovery+.
Host Chris Cooney created this apocalypse- and zombie-themed vegan cooking show over a decade ago and has become one of YouTube’s best-known vegan chefs. The show features easy how-to videos on plant-based cooking, as well as videos with tips for eating on a budget, vegan shopping guides, grocery store hauls, and more. New episodes are up every few days, which makes the show’s YouTube channel a must-subscribe for anyone interested in eating plant-based (and fending off zombie attacks).
While the show is called Jazzy Vegetarian, host Laura Theodore cooks up delicious, healthy meals and snacks without any animal-derived ingredients, meaning they’re fully plant-based. Her clear step-by-step preparations make it easy for viewers to follow along, and she offers eco-friendly tips for those who want to live more sustainably. Jazzy Vegetarian airs on PBS, so check the schedule, and tune in.
Mary’s Test Kitchen is all about experimenting with plant-based ingredients to make a variety of dishes DIY-style. Learn how to create your own vegan ingredients and dishes, like butter, fish tofu, shreddable chicken, and Korean garlic bread. Mary Lin uploads a new video every few days, and we can’t get enough.
While we wish mainstream networks offered many more plant-based cooking shows, we hope the success of these series will pave the way for more!
