Our event series, Meet the Makers, begins this November in Houston and will travel to Atlanta, San Diego, Seattle, Dallas, Denver, Raleigh-Durham, Kansas City and Chicago. Join us for this immersive live event and meet the makers we are featuring in our first season!

tastemakers debuts on public television stations nationwide this October!

In this new food-focused series, emmy-winning host Cat Neville profiles makers who approach their work with a focus on authenticity, quality and sustainability as they craft small-batch, artisan products that are defining the flavor of American food and drink. 

Each episode in our first 13-episode season follows a documentary-style story arc, going inside the world of the maker being profiled, exploring the creative process as well as the maker's connections within the culinary community, finally landing in the kitchen to see how to make something delicious with the products featured in the episode.

Viewers learn what drives these makers, what inspires them, how they approach their creative process, how they learned their craft. The show explores the process itself and how artisans do their work, taking viewers to unique corners of the country, uncovering regional food culture and history along the way. 

tastemakers is presented by the Nine Network of Public Media and distributed to public television stations nationwide through American Public Television.


Catherine has an extraordinary talent to identify individuals who have a unique story to tell. Her warm and enthusiastic spirit makes even humble makers feel comfortable so she can highlight their stories in the most impactful way possible. It makes for great television.
— Jack Galmiche, President and CEO of Nine Network
