April 10, 2012. Introducing Food Farmer Earth (FFE), a new Cooking Up a Story series that launches April 17 on YouTube.
This series is really about the food we eat, where it’s grown, and the people behind our food. We hope you will join us here and on both our channels on YouTube, become a subscriber, favorite the videos on YoutUbe, comment, let us know how we are doing.
As with all that we continue to produce with Cooking Up a Story, and our new Food Farmer Earth series, there’s a deep and abiding respect for nature, for the food itself, and for those who work so tirelessly to bring fresh, delicious, and wholesome food to market.
A brief description of each of the weekly segments:
Each week on FFE, (Tuesday) we begin in the Kitchen to learn how to prepare a fresh, seasonal dish from a professional chef, or serious home cook enthusiast. Not just the cooking of food, we will also explore the craft behind food making, for example, the art of food preservation from food preservation experts.
Wednesday, to the Field explores where our food is grown, raised, or distributed. We learn about the farmer, the artisan, the person responsible for a food demonstrated in the prior “in the Kitchen” segment, and their personal stories.
On Thursday, Food Wisdoms delves into some of the related food issues of the week, sometimes thorny issues, sometimes just useful information to know, from people whose lives center around the producing and selling of food.
Food Farmer Earth, by connecting the dots, we hope to share the amazing stories of true heros who are responsible for the food we eat, and celebrate the joy of eating good food.
