Winning Programs Announced

KPBS is pleased to announce two new local television programs: Savor San Diego and A Growing Passion. Both feature local experts in their field and are a recognizable part of the community. KPBS received 52 submissions for the Explore San Diego Project.

“KPBS is excited to add two new local shows to our schedule next spring. We want to further distinguish ourselves as the place for thoughtful local television programs that reflect our unique sense of place,” said KPBS Director of Programming, John Decker.

“We’re incredibly proud to offer two new TV programs next spring from two highly regarded experts. Nan & Su-Mei are San Diego icons who genuinely care about the community. They will be a great compliment to KPBS’ line-up of programs and offer unique outreach into our community,” said Decker.

Savor San Diego

Notable San Diego chef, restaurateur and cookbook author, Su-Mei Yu, will uncover San Diego’s hidden culinary treasures and show how they can be used to create delicious and healthful dishes at home. She will seek out off-the-beaten path San Diego centric growers, fisherman, vendors, products and all things food related in an effort to educate viewers on the multitude of unique resources we have available in our region. Each episode will take viewers on a fun and educational journey through a unique local food related item/place and culminate with an easy-to-follow cooking demonstration by Su-Mei Yu, one of San Diego’s most loved chefs.
