Capri Cafaro believes food is a compelling storyteller. She has taken that philosophy into her work as a cookbook author, podcast/radio and TV host and as a contributing reporter.
In 2020, Capri’s debut cookbook, United We Eat, received international acclaim and features 50 recipes that tell America’s unique story, demonstrating how food can unite and bring people together. As part of her virtual book tour, Capri appeared on a variety of television cooking segments on stations across North America from Portland, OR to Tampa, FL as well as on Canada’s #1 morning show, Breakfast Television and Canada’s #1 daytime talk show, The Social. In November 2020, Capri and her cookbook were recognized at the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Thanksgiving event, alongside acclaimed chef Jose Andreas.
Capri is the host of the Taste Award nominated culinary podcast series Eat Your Heartland Out about the intersection of food and culture in the American Midwest. The show is produced by the Heritage Radio Network, a leader in culinary audio storytelling and distributed on PRX, the Public Radio Exchange, an entity that provides content to public radio affiliates across the United States. The show is carried on select NPR affiliates and airs on SiriusXM Radio Channel 147 Sunday evenings at 7pmE.
Following her commitment to American storytelling, Capri is also a contributing reporter for West Virginia Public Radio’s Inside Appalachia’s Folkways Corps and Detroit Public Television’s Great Lakes Now. Both programs are aired on dozens of NPR and PBS affiliates respectively.
In addition to television and radio, Capri’s work and expertise have been featured in publications such as Variety, BBC Food, the Daily Mail, the Evening Standard, the Huffington Post, the Food Network, and Taste of Home online.
Capri is the host and creator of America the Bountiful, an original food & travel series to air on public television stations nationwide in early 2024.
