To Dine For

Journalist Kate Sullivan transports you to restaurants around the country to hear the diverse stories of entrepreneurs, creatives, innovators and change-agents at their favorite restaurant. The show is a celebration of people who have taken an idea from “inspiration to execution” through their own imagination and hard work and are now using their success to help others and ultimately change the world. It’s also a celebration of food and the place it holds in our life stories. Despite different races, religions, and beliefs, sitting down to a delicious meal over fascinating conversation can often get to the heart of what life is all about.
