For the Love of Food

Each Saturday morning the Savor Life show For The Love Of Food introduces listeners to new restaurants, recipes, and the exploration of discovering food!

Savor Life host Michael Warren Thomas guides his audience through an hour of discussion with Rochester foodies, chefs, restauranteurs and more.

This show has been airing since 2008 which means For The Love Of Food has been helping move the discussion in our region longer than most other local restaurant experts. Tune in to keep up on the latest trends in everything from fine dining to food trucks and vegetarian cuisine to coffee.
