In today's Food & Dining section, I have a story about a new cooking show called "Vegan Mashup."

The Maine-based production team just wrapped up filming at a gorgeous kitchen in Cumberland, where I joined them on the set when New York City chef Terry Hope Romero (in the middle of the above photo) was cooking up her chorizo tempeh tacos. You can get the full recipe by clicking the link above. Also in the above photo is producer Betsy Carson and chef/author Toni Fiore, the host of the "Totally Vegetarian" cooking show.

I was really impressed with not only the team and the food (which I got to sample), but the way the show was being filmed. In the above photo, you can see the lead video camera, which is a point-and-shoot Cannon that also shoots HD video. Cinematographer Tom Pierce told me its video quality is really high and that a growing number of big budget television shows are being shot on these Cannons.

It was also really interesting to see how much behind-the-scenes adjustment goes on to make sure each segment is the best it can be.

You can find more info about the show and make a donation to help complete the editing and promotion on the Delicious TV website.
