MEET AUTHOR AND TV COOKING TEACHER CHRISTINA PIRELLO
Although she’s one of the best known vegan/whole foods cookbook authors and teachers on the East Coast, Christina Pirello is not as well known on the West Coast as she deserves to be. You’ll find scores of straight-forward, useful recipes on her website, many of them relating to the 140 episodes of “Christina Cooks,” her PBS TV series. As far as I can tell, “Christina Cooks” is not currently airing on any of our local PBS stations–call your PBS station and inquire. You may want to add her most recent books, “Christina Cooks” and “This Crazy Vegan Life” to your library. A breezy five-minute video interview is here. Christina’s cooking style is practical, and she makes it fun.
VEGETARIAN COOKING ON BAY AREA PBS STATIONS
A vegetarian-based series currently on KQED’s schedule is “Delicious TV’s Totally Vegetarian,” but only on it’s digital KQED Life (Comcast 189). Hosted by Toni Fiore, the program airs Friday afternoons at 3:30 p.m. Watch highlights here.
