The Hippy Gourmet Fans Say... For More Hippy Gourmet Testimonials
I was hooked after only seeing one episode of the Hippy Gourmet show. I love their website too, it is very informative. It features healthy recipes, food news and cooking tips. My most favorite is their monthly article, newsletter and episode pages! Bravo!!!
I happened to catch an episode of the hippy gourmet tv show recently and then went to check out their website, what I found was a really cool, colorful place! I love to read through the history of their tv series, follow along with the stories from each episode, and then found the recipes that are featured on PBS. The Hippy Gourmet website is a completely fun and accessible place, I signed up for their newsletter and recently I placed an order for a DVD and got 2 for 1 plus free shipping... totally cool dude! The DVD's came with printed recipes and some hippy gourmet collectible buttons, which I wear proudly as I cook up the dishes I found from their site. But the best part of hanging out with the Hippy Gourmet is that my wife and kids and I have rediscovered our kitchen and being together. just rocks!
