We are more disconnected from our food and drink than ever before! Generational cooking skills and food traditions are slowly withering away, and many of us have no idea where our food is actually coming from. That is why we need to start a conversation around real, honest food again. The mission of this show is to help you build appreciation and knowledge around honest food and drink, as well as the processes that bring it to our tables. Join us as we explore various food-related topics on cooking, food traditions, nutrition, hunting, fishing, foraging, gardening, farming and much more!
