A behind-the-scenes look at how Eater’s most globe-trotting, food-filled TV show was made

Eater Talks: The Making of Eater’s Guide to the World

November 19 — 12:30 p.m. ET / 9:30 a.m. PT

Each episode of Eater’s show Eater’s Guide to the World, which premiered on November 11, showcases a new, food-filled side of a locale — some you may think you know, like, LA or New York, and some that are probably less familiar, like Costa Rica. The crew that shot the delicious new series went to countless markets, bars, restaurants, taco trucks, taprooms, burrito stands… and a badminton club, a car wash, and the literal jungle. So what went into actually making the show?

On Thursday, November 19 at 12:30 p.m. ET, Vox Media Studios production executive Maureen Giannone Fitzgerald will lead a panel featuring some of the producers and “characters” from the show discuss how the thing was made — from the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on filming to how Maya Rudolph came to be its narrator.

You’ll hear from series executive producer Lauren Cynamon and show team members Alex Craig, Kishori Rajan, Nicola Linge and Sydney Mondry; producer Travis Callahan will chat with American drag queen Miz Cracker, a bright light in the show’s New York episode; and last but not least, you’ll hear from star Seattle chef Eric Rivera and Portland-based food critic Karen Brooks.

The event is taking place over Zoom, so register below to secure a spot, receive a Zoom link prior to the event, and add the event to your calendar. (And in the meantime, check out the show for yourself on Hulu…)
