About the speaker
Kyle Cherek is a culinary historian, food essayist, and host of the Emmy Award-winning television show Wisconsin Foodie on PBS. For over a decade, he has chronicled regional food stories, exploring where our food comes from and how it shapes who we are. His signature wit and keen observations have made him a sought-after keynote speaker, media contributor and culinary storyteller.
Kyle is a regular expert media contributor on NPR and has been awarded the Wisconsin Broadcast Association Award twice for his compelling essays on food culture. He has been featured on The Cooking Channel, The Travel Channel and Eater. In 2016, he gave a TEDx Talk examining the powerful science and emotion of food memories.
He and his wife own Amuse Bouche Entertainment Productions and together create unique food media and culinary events, which include keynote presentations, cooking demonstrations, and wildly popular storytelling dinner events.
In his free time, Kyle can be found geeking out over food history books, cooking time-honored recipes for his wife and children, and googling the pronunciation of awkward French culinary terms.
