Vegan TV cooking show wins two Taste Awards

Amazon Prime's hit plant-based cooking show, New Day New Chef, has just won two prestigious Taste Awards - considered the 'Oscar's of food'. Not only did the show win the award for Best Series Pilot, but also for Best Filmed at Home Episodes or Film. Both awards were Viewer's Choice, proving that people enjoy vegan cooking and food, and are keen to learn more.

New Day New Chef was nominated for eight Taste Awards in total, up against meat-heavy competition. The show's triumph shows that vegan cooking shows are thought of by the public as being as good as, if not better, than meat and dairy orientated TV programmes.
