“Modern media company Tastemade and Southern California’s PBS station have launched Season Two of the Emmy® and James Beard Award®-winning series “Broken Bread – hosted by restaurant entrepreneur and acclaimed chef Roy Choi. Co-produced by Tastemade and KCET, the new season explores the future of the restaurant industry, highlighting diverse, expert perspectives and features notable names including Chef Wolfgang Puck, Restaurateur & Food Activist Alice Waters, Artist & Activist Chuck D. and more.”

““Broken Bread” follows Choi as he explores complex social justice issues through the lens of food – including gentrification, cultural erasure, and the corporate takeover of food and farming – and celebrates the people who are making big changes to the current food landscape, what is eaten and where communities gather. He meets inspiring individuals and organizations who challenge the status quo and use food as a platform for activism and a catalyst for change. As the connector, Choi teams up with those making a difference and thus, fuels his deep love for the food community and the players who fight to transform it for the better.”

The Emmy Award-winning Director of “Broken Bread,” Antonio Diaz is our guest. Antonio is also the Executive Producer of “The Migrant Kitchen” now airing it’s 4th season locally on KCET and PBS SoCal.
