Delicious TV Takes the Mystery out of Veggie Fare

PORTLAND, MAINE – September 26, 2005 – The producers of Delicious TV announced today that their new vegetarian cooking and lifestyle TV series was picked up over the summer by Public Television distributor NETA and is now available via satellite feed to all public television stations nationwide.

Hosted by Toni Fiore, this outstanding vegetarian cooking series makes the most of her casual, Mediterranean culinary style, emphasizing fresh ingredients that are easy to prepare. “One of my greatest pleasures is cooking for people who aren’t familiar with the depth and variety of vegetarian cooking,” says Toni Fiore. “My goal is to demonstrate to viewers how easy, exciting, healthy and delicious contemporary vegetarian cooking really is.”

Delicious TV’s thirteen-episode series showcases thirty-six of the easiest, most scrumptious and accessible vegetarian and vegan recipes likely to be found anywhere. And, the show’s website – – makes it possible for viewers to print one or all of the recipes, ask Toni questions about vegetarian food and diets, and even “blog” their own veggie favorites.

Delicious TV originated in 2002, when a few friends got together to shoot a 30-minute vegetarian holiday cooking show. Three years and thirteen episodes later, Producer Betsy Carson and Host Toni Fiore are still doing it – better than ever! The show’s national launch will be accompanied by a direct mail campaign aimed at potential sponsors for thirteen more episodes on HDTV. Promotional materials are currently in development through Rob Draper of VisionMill, a new high-definition television production company in Camden, Maine.

If you want to see Delicious TV on more public television stations nationally, please contact your local PBS Station to tell them you want to see this exciting new show airing on your local channel. The show is available FREE through NETA, our new distributor. Just go to the PBS Station Finder at to access the telephone number or email address of your local station.

Delicious! TV( is produced in Portland, Maine and currently airs several times a week on local public television stations.



When I was 12 years old, my family moved to Italy and I was introduced to the classic Mediterranean diet, built upon the robust flavors of Italy with a focus on fresh vegetables, fruits, pastas, and grains. Best of all, preparing food was a celebration!

Italians showed me that cooking and eating are best enjoyed as a communal experience, where wine and conversation are as important to the meal as the food. I quickly embraced this philosophy and found joy and satisfaction in the preparation of simple, fresh food.

Delicious TV is for everyone who loves to eat -- and wants to eat healthier!

One of my greatest pleasures is cooking for people who aren't convinced that vegetarian food is both satisfying and complete. Watch Delicious TV and you'll see how easy, exciting, and healthy contemporary vegetarian cooking really is.
