Meet the Makers: Houston

THANK YOU, HOUSTON, FOR MAKING OUR FIRST MEET THE MAKERS A HUGE SUCCESS! More than 400 OF YOU JOINED US FOR THIS CELEBRATION OF HOUSTON’S FOOD SCENE, WITH OUTTAKES FROM OUR HOUSTON-BASED EPISODE, INTERVIEWS WITH PEOPLE FEATURED ON THE SHOW, A LIVE FLEISCHMANN’S YEAST COOKING DEMO AND A TASTING EXPERIENCE FEATURING 20 LOCAL VENDORS.

It’s with things like Meet the Makers that the small community of artisans can meet a wider audience. That is very much needed: for the artisans to survive, and for the people to get better food.
— Andrea Cudin, Lira Rossa Cheese
You put on a great event! I loved the videos and interviews. Well done and brings the farmer to the front of the story!
