Meet Your Maker
Hosted by Rachel Wharton
Produced by Rachel Wharton
Engineered by Joe Galarraga
Thursdays at 3:00PM EST

Hosted by Rachel Wharton, the deputy editor of Edible Manhattan and Edible Brooklyn, Meet Your Maker is where you get to hear from the people behind our food. That means not just bakers, picklers, cheesemakers, candysmiths, chefs and butchers, but hopefully kitchenware designers, builders, glass-blowers, bourbon distillers and even those behind the way we think about food. What does a baker obsess about? How do you forge a cast iron pan? Who invented the term locavore? How does the sausage get made? You'll find out on Meet Your Maker, and over time hear from all those who else have a hand--literally--in how we cook, eat and drink.
