The Vegan Drag Queen: Cooking in Heels

There are so many cooking shows on the internet... go surfing for a recipe and you'll get everything from Martha Stewart showing you how to bake a pie to druggies cooking up a batch of crystal meth.

With all these choices, we look for something that can inform and entertain.

We found that in Honey LaBronx. This gal from New York cooks up some vegan dishes as "The Vegan Drag Queen," and they're both entertaining and informative. With her flaming-red hair and sundress, this is one fabulous-looking chef.

So far, LaBronx still hasn't gotten the funding she needs for a full-on internet cooking show, but the two videos she has out now are a good start. By the way, if you like them, LaBronx is planning to raise capital on Kickstarter. Follow her blog for details.

Here's Honey LaBronx demonstrating how to make basic seitan:
