Chef Michael Symon Isn’t Scared of Vegan Food Anymore
Celebrity chef Michael Symon wants you to know that eating vegan isn’t scary.
Latest Vegan News shared a surprisingly positive vegan food review from ABC Show The Chew. Chef Symon had some strong, positive things to say about vegan eating after visiting By Chloe in NYC. On their ‘Chew Approved Weekend Eats’ feature, the team tried vegan burgers from the hugely popular spot.
With a self-proclaimed reputation for being “the master of all meats,” it was pretty fun to watch Michael serve everyone the burgers without telling them they were vegan first. Tasters had a chance to say they were amazing before the big reveal was announced with a villainous soundtrack to back it up.
His vegetarian wife, Liz, had to bribe him to get him to the restaurant that he now claims “changed his mind about vegan food forever.” They got to sit down with Chloe Coscarelli herself, and had the opportunity to sample and learn more about her guac burger, mac n cheese, ice cream, and cookies. Chloe reinforces that vegan food can’t just be good for vegans, it has to just be good. Michael quickly agrees that everything she’s serving up is so good, he almost forgets about his favourite burger place across the street.
With so many people still afraid to touch anything labelled vegan, it’s nice to see some positive publicity for facing the fear. Watch the video below, and let Michael talk your non-vegan friends in to giving your favourite vegan restaurant a shot.
