Re: [SFVeg] Vegan BBQ on Food Network - Beautifully Represented - Please Send Thank You!
i think this is great. i went to the website to look
at how they described it and i was not thrilled with
the title of that particular title:
BBQ with Bobby Flay Episode BQ1B07
Join Bobby Flay as he checks out some of the craziest
BBQs around! From an Alien BBQ in New Mexico, to a Gas
Station BBQ in Oklahoma, to a Vegan BBQ in California,
to a Solar BBQ!
i have written the food network, requesting more
vegan/vegetarian shows and/or segments. but maybe we
can also ask for these future vegetarian segments not
be lumped into a "crazy ..." show title? i am a
little offended in this way, though happy to see a
non-meat option presented on national television.
not meaning to be discouraging,

- Colleen Patrick-Goudreau asked us to write to the Food Network http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/show_sf/text/0,1976,FOOD_17616_21388,00.html
to let them know that we appreciated the vegan segment on BBQ with Bobby Flay. I did so and also mentioned how charming Colleen is and suggested that they build a show around her. I hope others will write something similar about Colleen because I think the Food Network is all the more likely to start a veg show if we make it clear not only that we want a veg show generally but also that the station has the opportunity to feature a veg chef who will attract viewers with her personality and style as well as her delicious recipes. Just my thought. :)
