Celebrity speaker Dave Eckert brings more than 25 years of experience in broadcasting, food and dining reporting, and a passion for food and wine to the table in his Emmy award winning show Culinary Travels with Dave Eckert. Before he landed the hit show, which airs across 160 Public Broadcasting affiliates across the country, he worked as a reporter covering news, sports, and weather before he found his niche in food when he was hired by Chicago superstation WGN-TV to help produce, report, and edit “What’s Cookin’ Chicago.” During his tenure with What’s Cookin’ Chicago, Eckert developed an incredible knowledge for food, and got to meet some of the world’s most talented chefs including Julia Child. This local foodie show in Chicago drove Dave to create his own show Culinary Travels with Dave Eckert. The 30-minute weekly television program features Dave traveling the globe to regions renowned for their amazing dining, wine production and agricultural products. Dave has built quite the following with the show, and has been recognized twice by the Academy of Wine Communications for his work. In addition to his television work, Eckert has become known as one the world’s most prominent food, wine, and spirits connoisseurs. The dining expert has a collection of about 3,000 bottles of wine and spirits in his home cellar, with many bottles coming from regions the Culinary Travels host has visited for his show, such as Italy, France, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Scotland, Mexico, and Kentucky. Additionally, Dave Eckert enjoys cooking and pairing wine with tasteful cuisine, and can be found teaching cooking and wine classes at the Culinary Center of Kansas City. He also writes a regular column for the nationally distributed Kansas City Bullsheet, and is a frequent contributor to the James Beard award wining Food section of the Kansas City Star newspaper.
