Flavor HD is Food Radio – bringing you all your flavorite grilling gurus, palate pals, taste buds, kitchen crushes and heroes of the hungry.
Your Flavor HD hosts are the dynamic duo of deliciousness: Hannah and Dane! (which is where the H and the D in the name Flavor HD comes from)
Flavor HD is a natural combination of Hannah’s on-air talent and her general obsession with all things food/cooking/baking/nutrition and kitchen related. Throughout grade school, she would watch cooking shows instead of cartoons. In junior high she waited hours to meet Julia Child and have her autograph a cookbook. Instead of teen magazines, she would thumb through cookbooks. After taking several cake decorating classes, and winning several cake decorating contests, it was obvious to most that this was a lifelong interest. A radio veteran, Hannah has worked at many of the country’s most recognized stations, and with many of Chicago’s top personalities. Hannah lives in suburban Chicagoland with her husband and children, focused on teaching them how to whisk and zest, and the science behind flavors.
Having interviewed everyone in food from Bobby Flay to the legendary Jacques Pepin… from Tom Colicchio and Top Chefs to Andrew Zimermn and the truly bizarre… Giada, Guy Fieri and great foodies everywhere, Dane Neal has talked to those who have cooked and tasted it all… and as co-host of Restaurant Radio America, Dane has broadcasted live from The Aspen Food and Wine Classic and been on the scene at the biggest food events in America from New York to California.
