Northeast Indiana produces $1.4 billion of food products each year, but imports $1.9 billion from outside the area.

You can expect your Thanksgiving dinner to be a bit more expensive this year.

The retail price of a sixteen pound turkey went up by over four dollars since last year according to an annual survey by the Indiana Farm Bureau.

Indiana wants to help Hoosier farmers who are ready to grow beyond the farmer’s market. The Indiana Department of Agriculture released new data on food hubs Monday.

“Food hub” can be a broad term, but Agriculture Department Director Ted McKinney says people should think of the word “aggregation” – it’s a way for farmers and food producers, often via a website, to connect with buyers.  And a new Department of Agriculture study shows Indiana can do more to utilize food hubs.

Alton Brown has become an icon of the food world…but he’s not a celebrity chef. He’s more like a culinary raconteur.  

His first television show Good Eats started on a local PBS station, then ran for 14 seasons on the Food Network. The show used comedy to explain the science of cooking every day food at home.  

Since then, Brown has become the face of Food Network, hosting shows like Iron Chef America, Feasting on Asphalt, and now Cutthroat Kitchen. Brown is currently on his Edible Inevitable Tour, a live variety show coming to Fort Wayne this Thursday.
