Catering to the public’s insatiable appetite for food programming, Roberto Mighty, the veteran television producer and documentary filmmaker, recently launched Food New England, a YouTube video channel that focuses on a diverse group of local residents sharing their love of food. The segments are filmed by Mighty in home kitchens, restaurants, pubs, and specialty food stores from Boston to Portland, Maine. Mighty films regular people, rather than professionals or celebrity chefs, he says, because the interest in food is widespread, and he thinks “a lot of people have been left out.’’

In the mid-1990s, Mighty was executive producer of Food New England, a series of prime-time specials hosted by Natalie Jacobson, which featured celebrity chefs and food experts. He found the early Food New England contributors through word-of-mouth and Craigslist. “Hopefully, as time goes on, more and more people will come forward,’’ he says. “What I’m looking for are interesting personalities and folks who exude authenticity, can communicate their passion about food, and are willing to share how they integrate food into their daily lives.’’ www.foodnewengland.com.
