“The whole idea is different walks of life and cultural diversity,” says Rob Kircher, a seasoned producer and food personality who has created three cooking shows. His newest “Great Neighborhood Cooks” is filmed in people’s kitchens in what he calls “eavesdropping” style, where the viewer listens in on Kircher’s conversation with the cook.
“We’re cooking as we’re getting this person’s backstory,” he explains. “Nothing is scripted. It’s all off the cuff.”
Down the street, and around the corner!
Host and Executive Producer Rob Kircher visits the opulent neighborhoods of Naples and ordinary homes just “down the street or around the corner,” as he says in the show’s opener. Once, he even surprised a young family who lives aboard a 38-foot yacht harbored in Cape Coral.
“The really fun part of this show is that we get to meet a lot of interesting people,” Kircher says. “It’s all walks of life and all styles of cooking.”
In each of the 26 half-hour episodes, Rob Kircher knocks on the doors of Southwest Florida’s unsung home cooks, uncovering the culinary talents of regular folks and bringing them into the spotlight on his TV show Great Neighborhood Cooks.
