Nine Network in St. Louis is partnering with the local Feast Magazine on Feast TV, a unique culinary show.

Filmed in Producer Catherine Neville’s home kitchen, each program links segments on regional food news with a cooking demonstration that progresses through the half-hour magazine. “This medium lets viewers meet the farmers, the chefs, the brewers and winemakers who make up our culinary industry,” said Neville, also Feast Magazine publisher.

Feast TV had been airing on the local Fox affiliate, said Terri Gates, Nine Network spokesperson. “Because it fits in with two of our focus areas — community life and lifestyle and entertainment — we invited the Feast team to move the series to Nine Network.”

The pilot of Feast TV won a Mid-America Emmy in October: It featured segments on a local chef using truffles from Umbria, a restaurateur running two restaurants in one location, the secret to a crisp pizza crust and a coffee-infused dinner.
