Lights, Action, Camera!

We've begun production of our first program, due to broadast sometime in December. The show theme is Holiday Cookies. Join us in Karen's kitchen as we show you how to make biscotti the old-fashioned way and decorate cookies and cakes with icing -- without the mess. Karen shares a family favorite, handed down through generations. Then we'll take you inside Cookies by Miss Jackie's, a Salem Street favorite!

Our Website ( is also under construction. Bookmark it now to easily access featured recipes, videos of previous shows (once we have them) and some of our favorite links and resources.

Welcome to the Neighborhood

Welcome to the Neighborhood Blog, the official blog of Neighborhood Dish, MATV's newest cooking show. Why? Because all communities have eating in common. We hope to bring Malden's diverse community together by sharing our culinary heritage, encouraging you to prepare and enjoy delicious wholesome food, introducing you to food-related businesses and organizations in the Malden area, and having fun along the way.

Neighborhood Dish is produced and directed by two Malden residents, Karen Yates and Paula Spizziri. We're currently producing our first two episodes -- stay tuned for details as they emerge.

Neighborhood Blog is a place where Malden residents can share their:
  • Thoughts on food, including their cultural experiences with food
  • Their opinions and recommendations about area food-related businesses, e.g., restaurants, supermarkets, and ethnic groceries
  • Feedback on and suggestions for Neighborhood Dish programs

Karen and Paula are excited to share their love of cooking and eating, and breaking bread with friends and family.
