Get ready vegan foodies. The Cooking Channel is starting off the new year by diving headfirst into the world of veganism with their new show on plant based cooking, “How To Live To 100”.

With the first episode airing on Sunday January 6th at 8pm, we hope they’ll catch the newly converted vegans and vegan-curious who made it their new years resolution to drop animal products from their diet. And of course, the hordes of vegans who love watching cooking shows, but up until now have been forced to suffer through recipes filled with cream, meat, and eggs, and then figure out how to convert them into creature-free recipes.

The show features chef Jason Wrobel as he cooks up delicious and beautiful plant based dishes made with super food ingredients. To get a preview, you can already see some of his recipes online including cilantro lime pesto pasta, black bean chickpea salad, coconut yogurt with fresh figs and apples. Super yum. We especially love that Wrobel has an expertise in raw cooking.

As for testimonials, Wrobel counts among his fans Woody Harrelson, Jeremy Piven, Robin Wright, Sigourney Weaver, and Russell Simmons.

Will you be checking out the new (and first) mainstream vegan cooking show? We will. Not just to see Wrobel and whatever delicious-ness he decides to whip up, but also to make clear to The Cooking Channel that the public loves all things vegan and wants to support plant based cooking programming.

    I have it set to record already, he’s a very animated guy on his Youtube channel, so the show should be good.

    I found the host annoying and it was really hard to watch. I’ll be checking out the recipies on the Cooking Channel website, but I won’t watch the show again.

  • Good to know..
