Sponsors of A Chef’s Life on PBS
The Mast Farm Inn is honored to be an Official Sponsor of “A Chef’s Life” on PBS • “A Chef’s Life is currently the top rated food series on PBS. Much more dynamic than a typical cooking show, A Chef’s Life is a character-driven documentary and cooking series, broadcasting nationally on PBS stations.”
“A Chef’s Life plunges audiences into the kitchen of a high-end restaurant located in the low country of eastern North Carolina. It follows the trials and travails of Chef Vivian Howard and her husband, Ben Knight, and their farm-to-table restaurant, Chef & the Farmer, exploring both traditional and modern applications of quintessential Southern ingredients.”

Lenoir Committee of 100 • The Lenoir Committee of 100, Inc. was re-organized in 1985 by a group of citizens who wanted to help their community to be a better place in which to live, work, and raise a family. Members recognized that a gap existed between the needs of private business and the ability of public organizations to meet those needs. The Lenoir Committee of 100, Inc. is a private, not for profit organization, that raises private funds from individuals and businesses in the greater Lenoir County area. Our purpose is to provide funding for such economic development projects as may be deemed beneficial to the citizens of Lenoir County, North Carolina. We also provide such discretionary funds as may be deemed appropriate to recognized Lenoir County economic development agencies.
