[LOS ANGELES, CA]: From the Golden Globes to Dunkin’ Donuts, from Burger King to Starbucks, the world is waking up to the benefits of a plant-based diet, for the climate, human health and the animals. Now, the skyrocketing trend toward plant-based eating is hitting television with a first-of-its-kind vegan cooking show!

New Day New Chef is a new, fast-paced cooking show set to air on Public Television stations throughout the nation and is now available to watch on Prime Video.

New Day New Chef is hosted by New York Times bestselling author and former CNN Headline News (HLN) host Jane Velez-Mitchell, who is well-known for advocating a vegan lifestyle. Season one features eight episodes of fun, delicious, easy vegan recipes, such as a tantalizing tower of triple-decker veggie burgers and a Superwoman bowl of well massaged kale. Love eggs? We show you how to make eggless, zero-cholesterol, deviled eggs that will be a hit at any party!
