Needs a veggie cook imo. I love watching most of the shows on there and although certian ones cook vegetarian quite a bit I think there should be a pure veggie show. Don't you agree?

Argh! Yes... I was just thinking about that the other day. I love the food network, and whenever I watch it I try and mentally convert it to vegan. It gets annoying, though. There are enough omnivore chefs, time to give the veggies a chance!

I read that someone pitched a veg show to Food Network, and they said sure, but it had to include fish and chicken. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:"> So it never materialized.

fish and chicken is not a veggie. Since when does chicken grow in the ground? and last time i checked neather does fish. That annoys me so much.

Yeah, no kidding. I was very disappointed when I read it. Apparently they thought a 100% vegetarian show wouldn't appeal to enough viewers.

I dislike the Food Network as I find them to be pretty anti veg*n. I was going to post about this awhile ago but well, I am a space-cadet and forgot. A few months ago I went to their website (<a href="http://www.foodnetwork.com" target="_blank">www.foodnetwork.com</a>) to look for veg*n recipes and what I found under their "meatless" section was SEAFOOD by the 4th recipe on the list. The first three were heavy cheese and egg dishes, which IS meatless but not the most appealing (or healthy). I just did another search a few minutes ago and see that they have changed their "meatless" section to say "meatless AND vegetarian" but still by the 13th recipe they have a seafood dish and have many seafood dishes after that one.<br><br><br><br>
I guess they are doing better than they were but still, you would think that a bunch of chefs and food 'experts' would be able to understand the definition of vegetarian. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dizzy2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":dizzy:">

Yes I totally agree..esp when the chefs say they are gonna make a veggie dish vegetarian veggie soup and they add chicken stock...come on...they need some one to advise them on what is veggie and what isnt.

I think everyone should write Food Network and let them know they should have a vegetarian show added to their Channel and not those shows that says you can make this dish a vegetarian if you like.

i think that if the current chefs did more veg cuisine, it would be more logical because people will already tune into those, and then SEE this cuisine for themselves, thus resulting in them want to try vegetarian recipes. otherwise, they just might not tune into the new show

Here's the information on where to send show ideas. I see they only want people with credentials. This really sucks. I think the viewers should have a say so as well since they are the ones that is supporting the shows.<br><br><br><br><br><br>

1. I have an idea for a new Food Network Show. Where Should I send it?<br><br>

I would love to see Christina Pirello get onto Food Network. CN8 airs her show every weekday in the afternoon (unfortunately, no matter which shift I'm on, I'm at work at 4 in the afternoon either way so I rarely get to see it) but I'd like to see her get a more primetime slot with a higher budget or something. I think she would be a great fit because she doesn't focus on <i>extreme</i> (<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:">) or <i>intimidating</i> (<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:">) subjects like "Veganism" *gasp*... she moreso pushes the healthy, organic aspect of cooking... it just so happens that all the "healthfood" stuff she works with is vegan, but she doesn't sell it that way. I think the general viewing public might be able to handle it (<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:"> again) and it might even be successful, especially with the big health-food kick that's going on in America these days....
