'THE HIPPY GOURMET' TELEVISION COOKING SERIES
ANNOUNCES THE START OF ITS THIRD SEASON, ADDING NEW CABLE OPERATORS
AROUND THE COUNTRY, AND DOUBLING ITS VIEWERSHIP
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (Haight-Ashbury District)
- Sept. 22, 2003 (Send2Press Newswire) -- The Hippy Gourmet is
a thirty-minute, weekly television cooking series set against
the backdrop of San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district, which
is commonly regarded as the heart of Hippie lifestyle and culture.
"We are just so thrilled to be creating new episodes and
entering our third season for this show!" Says James Ehrlich,
the Hippy Gourmet's Executive Producer and Director. He continues,
"The fact that now cable operators from all around the country
are requesting our show, due to fans spreading the word about
us is phenomenal."
The show is based primarily in the kitchen and garden of The Hippy
Gourmet's host, Bruce Brennan, who is an original Hippie and one
time chef to rock-and-roll and movie stars. "Hard to believe
that we re gearing up for our third season already, seems like
the past two years have flown by," says Mr. Brennan, commenting
on the prolific volume of recipes and shows being created for
the series. He continues, "I know we're onto something really
big here, because our website is buzzing all the time with people
requesting recipes and wanting to buy our episodes."
The Hippy Gourmet has received press and media coverage from around
the world, taking their production crew on the road and filming
episodes from the Amazon rain forest of Brazil, Caribbean Islands
such as Dominica and Trinidad and has a season of shows planned
for additional travel around the U.S., Canada and abroad.
The producers of The Hippy Gourmet are in discussion with broadcasters
and distributors to take the show nationally starting this fall.
Also in the works is a compendium cookbook: "The Hippy Gourmet
Cookbook and Guide to the Universe."
