Vegan representation on UK cooking show
Romy London, a vegan lifestyle blogger from the UK, features as the ONLY vegan contestant in the new cookery show Crazy Delicious, for Channel 4 and Netflix.
The episode is to broadcast Tuesday 25th February at 8pm on Channel 4.
“In Crazy Delicious we’re asking for dishes that not only taste great but are also visually spectacular, emotionally powerful and nostalgic so it’s incredibly tough!”, said celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal who is one of the ‘Food Gods’ in Crazy Delicious, alongside Carla Hall and Niklas Ekstedt.
The six-episode series is presented by comedian and foodie Jayde Adams.

Romy London commented:
It’s a real privilege and I am very excited to be part of a cookery show like Crazy Delicious. Cooking for Michelin star chefs is a chance you don’t get very often, especially when it’s vegan cuisine! I can’t wait for everyone to see the vegan dishes I created in the show and also the stunning edible set!
Romy London is the only vegan chef in the series so I’m hoping she had a wonderful experience!
Romy explains her feelings by saying:
I kind of feel that I’m representing all vegans and I hope that I can prove that everything is possible in vegan cooking. I loved taking on the challenge of being the only vegan contestant on the show and competing with other creative chefs to win the Golden Apple.
When asked what she cooked on the show, Romy says:
Oh, that’s a secret. You’ll have to watch the episode! But I can reveal it was a fun challenge cooking vegan versions of non-vegan everyday dishes.
Watch Romy on Crazy Delicious, Channel 4, Tuesday 25th February at 8pm. It will also be broadcast on Netflix internationally (UK excluded) early this year.
