The first season of the Perennial Plate came about as Daniel Klein, a chef, returned to Minnesota after years of living away. He believed it was a good time to open a farm to table restaurant. That was until he got to know our culinary community and decided instead to find a new way to explore the link between the land and the food we eat. He and his now wife Mirra Fine took off, just the two of them, filming first a year of eating around Minnesota, including a fateful trip to a farm to film a slaughter that solidified Mirra as a vegetarian. From there, the two have traveled around the world and shared meals and stories from every corner of the globe.
If you've never watched the show before, a good entry point is this one minute in Mexico episode, it's an assault on the senses and a guaranteed kick off to a taco craving.
This season, the duo will visit four locations and get to know each new region over a season. First up, summer in Colorado.
It's been over a year since the last season as the duo worked on PBS' Victory Garden Edible Feast, another online cooking show and cooked up a little bit of their own home grown goodness. This season will also have to make room for a new cast member. Son James is also just over a year and he will be joining them on the next adventure.
