About Kyle Cherek
Kyle Cherek is host of the Emmy-nominated television show Wisconsin Foodie, beginning its seventh season on PBS and broadcast primetime to over 8.2 million households.
A born-and-bred Wisconsinite, he has been sitting up and taking nourishment since the Nixon administration. He sees the Midwest as a font of history, craftsmanship, and artisanal dispositions; all of which are continually pushing national culinary and sustainability trends forward. As host of Wisconsin Foodie, Kyle profiles these food treasures and chronicles the story of food, through regional chefs, farmers, and artisans.
Kyle has made regular appearances on The Travel Channel and Food Network, and is a frequent media contributor to Public Radio, NPR, CBS and NBC. His widely-acclaimed video web series, Chef Talk with Kyle Cherek, features candid, forthright and often amusing conversations with some of America’s most engaging chefs. In an effort to raise the people’s consciousness about food and sustainability, he regularly hosts forums, cooking demonstrations, and culinary events.
When not telling the story of where our food comes from and how it shapes us, he is busy enjoying farmers’ markets; geeking out over culinary history books; perfecting his five or so kitchen moves whilst cooking with his family; or patiently waiting for the chance to say, ‘Let’s look at the dessert menu, shall we?’
