Kinston Restaurant Highlighted In PBS Documentary Series

We will soon get a look inside a Kinston restaurant like we've never seen before through a PBS documentary which will start airing in September.

Chef Vivian Howard and her husband Ben Knight opened up Chef & The Farmer restaurant in Kinston in 2006 across from the Lenoir County farmer’s market and in the center of Kinston’s downtown.

Howard and Knight work with a network of small farmers and create a menu that changes every week and highlights the region’s local seasonal ingredients. Everything from the bread to the ice cream is made in house.

Knight posted this on his website:
"For about two years Vivian and I have been working on a series for PBS about Southern Food, Eastern Carolina and our restaurant. We have shot, edited and sold our 13 segment series to National PBS on a budget made largely of fumes and determination. We are set to begin airing Nationally on PBS in September but need some funds to pass the finish line. We have launched an Indiegogo campaign (think kickstarter) to help us raise this last little bit. Click the link to the campaign and we ask you to consider helping us in any way you can (it is tax deductible)."
