Recognizing my omnivore’s/gluten-tolerant privilege

To my knowledge, neither the Food Network nor the Cooking Channel have dedicated programming for:

  • people with celiac
  • vegetarians
  • vegans
  • raw foodists who are the worst, but still

not to mention that the Food Network never talks about food politics. They seem like such glaring omissions.

    As far as the politics, it’s due in very large part I’m sure to the sponsors.

      Yeah, I bet. It’s sad, because they really have an opportunity to educate people. Alas I’ll just have to come up with something and pitch it to Oprah 😉

  2. I hope you don’t mind someone tossing in their $0.02 nearly a year after the fact: the PBS show “Christina Cooks”, starring the vegan macrobiotic chef Christina Pirello, might be of interest to some folks out there.

      The irony of this post is that I have since realized that I am not gluten-tolerant. Thanks for the comment though!
