I love to watch cooking shows on TV. It is a great way of picking up new recipes, new techniques and opening up your mind to different cuisines. But why is it always so meaty?
I was watching Jamie Oliver the other day, and I had to turn it off. Partly because I find him annoying! But mainly because his shows in particular are so meat obsessed!
Are there any vegetarian chefs cooking on TV? Not that I am aware of. Nigel Slater does some nice recipes that are meat-free, as does Hugh Fearnley-Whittigstall.
But generally vegetarian ideas are sadly lacking!
Why cook vegetarian recipes?
I think chefs on TV should be cooking more veggie dishes because:
- They can be made be a wider number of people
- They are generally healthier
- They are more environmentally friendly
- They’re generally cheaper to make.
Until then, I might find myself switching off more than I like to be.
