who is hot for food
Lauren Toyota is hot for food... as long as it's vegan! She's cooking up vegan love and bringing the increasingly popular lifestyle to food fans across the globe. Her knack for creating vegan versions of popular comfort foods like mac and cheese, burgers, caeser salad, and even cheesecake is helping to catapult the vegan lifestyle into the mainstream and proving that plant based diets are far from boring.
hot for food is part of Kin Community, the #1 lifestyle network on YouTube. Every Wednesday you can find Lauren sharing gourmet vegan comfort food recipes on the YouTube channel that now boasts over 350,000 subscribers and over 20 million channel views since launching in February of 2015. Her debut cookbook, Vegan Comfort Classics: 101 Recipes To Feed Your Face, is set to hit shelves on February 27, 2018 (Ten Speed Press/Penguin Random House) and is available for pre-order now!
The history of hot for food is short and sweet. It launched as a blog in February 2014 and earned over 10,000 visitors within the first week. At this time Lauren was working on recipes with the the help and inspiration of her partner, John Diemer. They were featured in Laika Magazine, Women's Health Magazine, BuzzFeed, Huffington Post, Thrive, V-lish.com and contributed editorial for Clean Eating Magazine, FoodNetwork.ca, and Raw Food Magazine. John Diemer was actively involved in creating the beginnings of the YouTube channel in late 2015. He shot the videos and participated in the hot for food challenges for the first year and a half as the channel gained significant momentum. The challenges remain hot for food's signature format which gained a lot of popularity! Maybe they'll come back one day, but for now John is busy running his own post production studio known as The Farmhouse Creative Labs.
hot for food has appeared on many national television shows to spread the vegan message like CTV's The Social, CityLine, CTV Morning Live (Ottawa and Vancouver), Global National News Hour, Global TV's Morning Show (Calgary and Toronto), Breakfast Television (Toronto and Vancouver) and CHCH Hamilton's Morning Live. Recently hot for food was invited by Gene Baur (the President of Farm Sanctuary and a global animal activist) to contribute an original recipe to his new book Living The Farm Sanctuary Life. The book is available now and also features recipes from famous vegans like Emily Deschanel, Chloe Coscarelli, and Moby. You can order your copy here.
Prior to launching hot for food and dreaming of running a vegan empire, Lauren Toyota was a MuchMusic VJ and nationally recognized TV host and producer for nearly 10 years. Visit her website for more info. You can also find her vlogging what she eats in a day, travelling, and sharing more personal aspects of her life on her other YouTube channel, Lauren In Real Life.
