SouthBound Replay: Vivian Howard On 'A Chef’s Life,' Her New Show, And Living In Front Of The Camera

Ways To Subscribe
Vivian Howard

Today we’re replaying a previously aired episode of "SouthBound" with chef and TV host Vivian Howard.

We talked in October 2018, just as Howard was wrapping up her Peabody Award-winning successful PBS show “A Chef’s Life.” She’s now working on a new show called “Somewhere South” that will start airing next March.

We talk about the rigors of spending a life in front of the camera, the things she hopes to learn in her next project — and what she eats at the State Fair.

On behalf of everyone here at "SouthBound" and WFAE, enjoy this conversation about food, and have a happy Thanksgiving.

Let's keep the conversation going. Send a tweet to @tommytomlinson or @wfae, and use the hashtag #WFAESouthBound. You can also email me at ttomlinson@wfae.org.
