Cooking Show

Recommended Posts

Hey, everyone! I used to get satellite and loved the cooking channel. Why don't the gluten-free flour companies or such sponsor a gluten-free cooking show?! I think one would very very much appreciated and welcomed! I know I'd feel that way--to have it "legitimatized" and out in the open (so non-gluten-free folks don't think it's just "health kick" thing!!) Has it been tried already or is there one and I don't know about it (we are thinking about getting satellite again). thanks!!

One which I saw advertised on this site is:

http://www.lovinfromtheoven.tv/

I don't know how it's doing though, and haven't seen it.

Thanks so much for the link! Their recipe for Mystery CHocolate Cake looks amazing. I don't think their show will get picked up by Food Network unless they make a lot of production changes, though--they talk to the "audience" as though the "audience" were a bunch of pre-schoolers rather than competent adults--very annoying!

oh my watching that was slightly painful. i get why they tell people to read labels and stuff since it is partly about educating those who don't suffer from celiac but...do they have to be so cheesy? it would be really awesome to see a good and fun gluten-free cooking show on the food network. i am also a HUGE food channel fan! i wonder how someone goes about pitching the idea to the food channel bigwigs??

Im sure they could get a show on there if a celiac foundation approaches them with the idea. I agree that it should be more of an entertaining show than the lonk above. They could even have travel sections in the show where the host goes around to differant gluten free resturants or factories and picks up on cooking techniques and recipes. I think it would be great to bring about celiac awareness, I am shocked at the amount of people in this country that have never heard of gluten intolerance!!! Theres no reason why it shouldnt be as well known as something like lactose intolerance. I was going to go into culinary arts and study nutition when I was deciding on what to do for college, now I'm woshing that I stuck with that idea!!!! I would have loved to make a celiac cooking show.
