(Rochester, New York) October 18, 2011 – PBS and WXXI announced today its launch of the new PBS FOOD website at PBS.org/Food/, offering users the ability to easily search for the best of public television’s local and national food content in one place. From national programs like Everyday Food and Made in Spain to a selection of the best local food shows like WXXI’s New York Wine and Table, as well as recipes and blogs from across the country, PBS FOOD now offers users a comprehensive directory of more than 150 food and cooking programs from the PBS airwaves.
During the summer, PBS launched the Fresh Tastes Blog, introducing food bloggers Marc Matsumoto and Jenna Weber, who lead an interactive celebration of food and cooking.
