According to a press release, "FoodNetwork.com's "Conscious Cooking" videos rethink health food and offer tips for wholesome dishes and snacks. The five-part series is hosted by culinary expert Colombe Jacobsen, who was a finalist in season three of "The Next Food Network Star." Cooking alongside Colombe are various New York chefs including Erin McKenna, PeterBerley, Galen Zamarra, and Sam Talbot." There are five gluten free baking videos, featuring Erin McKenna from Babycakes NYC Bakery, which is vegan and gluten free. These videos are an online exclusive; they did not air on Food Network television.
While I was reading the press releases on the Babycakes website, I came across this from July 2008: "BabyCakes NYC's Erin McKenna on the cover on Inc. magazine with Top Chef's Tom Colicchio. The Get Ahead Guide: Erin McKenna Makes the Best Cupcakes in New York City". Here are some other facts from the article: "New York named BabyCakes' cupcake the city's best in 2006, and founder Erin McKenna has been featured on Martha Stewart's show. A second BabyCakes store will open this fall in Los Angeles." Her skinny buns were on Oprah's best list in March 2008. Erin's cookbook will be available on April 28, 2009 and can be preordered now on Amazon for $16.32. The cookbook even has celebrity reviews. WOW! Now, that is Amazing Awareness!
