On today's THE FOOD SEEN, Chef Amanda Cohen of Dirt Candy, treats vegetables like meat. From faux-gras to finding the fat in flora, she's redefining vegetarian cuisine from the root up. Amanda believes, "any can cook a hamburger, but leave the vegetables to the professionals". The salad days are over! This episode was sponsored by Hearst Ranch.
"When I was 15, I became a vegetarian to rebel against my family."
"I wanted to find some taste sensation [with foie gras] that vegans and vegetarians could experience.
"If you don't do something great with a carrot, then there's no point!"
