Tim Love Calls the Vegetable Trend a Food Media Conspiracy

New, 4 comments

Ft. Worth urban-western chef Tim Love, a chef that New York City chewed up and spit out, thinks the whole "vegetables are the new meat" trend is a bogus scam invented by journalists. He told Yumsugar: "I don't understand movements. The media makes them up. People have always eaten vegetables. I've always had a tomato garden; everyone in Texas has tomato plants. There's nothing new there."

Also, he has a new show coming soon on the Food Network, a competition series called Best in Smoke. Details are slim: It's either a show about stoners or about barbecue. Maybe both.
