KYVE's "Valley Fresh Fare" puts the spotlight on Yakima products

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. – KYVE's "Valley Fresh Fare" will air its second episode on Monday but the show has several shoots in production and the creators already have plans to take the program in new directions.

Each episode tries to offer viewers healthy options when dining out around the Yakima Valley.

Gayla Games, former owner of Greystone restaurant, is the show's host. She says their goal is to emphasize what is locally grown and available in the region.

"The Valley is so abundant in fresh products and we want people to be aware of that," she said.

Upcoming episodes will continue the theme of inviting restaurants to share favorite dishes while looking for body and heart healthy options. The show also uses a dietitian to convert some dishes into a more nutritious version.

Games hopes the show will eventually visit local wineries, breweries, and local stores. She sees the show taking on a format similar to other PBS cooking shows.

"So when we do the show, we also are introducing, you know, some places where people might not be aware of to shop," said Games.

"Valley Fresh Fare" airs on the first Monday of the month on KYVE.
