A new cooking demonstration show on public television that emphasizes sustainable food production and close relationships between chefs and local farmers will begin airing on most PBS stations in early January.
“Chefs A’ Field: Culinary Adventures That Begin on the Farm” features the talents of the nation’s most acclaimed chefs — and the farmers they rely upon. Going beyond standard meal preparation, the program’s 13 episodes take viewers onto the farm for an over-the-shoulder view of chef-farmer exchanges.
The half-hour programs begin airing nationwide in January. For a schedule of local air times, go to http://www.sitestories.com/chefsafield/ and put your cursor over “CHEFS TV listings.”
Every episode of Chefs A’ Field showcases regional cuisine and is filled with picturesque scenes shot at the peak of the seasonal harvest, from a campaign to sell rutabaga in Virginia or a sea voyage in search of Bluefin tuna off the coast of Cape Cod.
Distributed by American Public Television, “Chefs A’ Field” was partly supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. www.wkkf.org.
