Food Network's first vegan cooking series, 'It's CompliPlated', hosted by Tabitha Brown promises to "change the way we all see food"


Vegan influencer and actress Tabitha Brown is hosting Food Network’s first vegan cooking competition.

It’s CompliPlated will see four competing chefs tasked with creating vegan and dietary-specific dishes for celebrity chef Maneet Chauhan and guest judges. The winning chef will walk away with $10,000.

Brown’s new show aims to prove that vegan and dietary-specific cooking can be flavoursome and innovative.

Some of the challenges the chefs will have to face include vegan-only Southern-style feast, gluten-free challenge, and “an Instagram-worthy dinner party without fruits or vegetables.”

In a statement, Jane Latman, President of Home & Food Content and Streaming, Warner Bros, shared: “It’s CompliPlated reflects what it’s actually like to make a meal the whole family will love.

“Tabitha Brown’s energy, sense of humour and real-life journey to becoming vegan make her the perfect host to take us on this adventure.”

Moreover, It’s CompliPlated will premiere on August 11th at 10 pm on Food Network and Discovery+.

“Becoming vegan changed my life and the way I cook”

After suffering from chronic migraines, neck pain, and poor mental health, Tabitha Brown made the switch to a plant-based lifestyle in 2017 and hasn’t looked back.

Brown became an overnight social media sensation with her legendary review video of a vegan BLT sandwich from Whole Foods. Her wholesome and comedic character has made her a household name across the world.

Moreover, Tabitha has started many conversations about veganism via her successful YouTube and TikTok channels.

Following the announcement of It’s CompliPlated, Brown shared: “Becoming vegan changed my life and the way I cook – and I know folks can relate to the daily challenge of making the whole family happy with one meal, so we decided to make a game of it.

“These chefs cook from the heart and their food is mind-blowing – viewers are sure to have a blast and be inspired for their next family dinner.”
