“The Perennial Plate is an online weekly documentary series dedicated to socially responsible and adventurous eating.  The episodes follow the culinary, agricultural and hunting explorations of chef and activist, Daniel Klein.  Season One took place over a calendar year in Minnesota where every Monday for 52 weeks, Klein and cameragirl Mirra Fine released short films about good food.  In Season Two, Klein and Fine are traveling across America, taking the viewer on a journey to appreciate and understand where good food comes from and how to enjoy it.  The Real Food Road Trip began on May 9th 2011, and the weekly videos have continued — bringing the audience along for stories of urban gardens, long drives, blood, hunting and guts…”

I honestly have not viewed any of the episodes yet. However, I am intrigued. I want to know what these two have and are learning.

Wild game hunting and fishing were regular weekend activities for the men in my family. I have seen my share of carcass. I have witnessed a flock of chickens being harvested. Still, I am apprehensive to watch the very first episode, Turkey Harvesting. Curious like a kid at Christmas. I think I will reserve the viewing for a quiet morning, by myself, for episode one. Skipping right over to the episode on cheese making!

The episodes are in progress. Check back each week to see what else they have learned.

We are heading outdoors tomorrow so I can demo a Burn (Creek Boat for Whitewater kayaking), play with the child (maybe splash the puddles in the rain) and just be. Then out for a ladies night. Excited to try a fairly new restaurant in Asheville called, Boca. I will let you know how it tastes!

Wherever you, love the one your with!

Happy sustainable and adventurous eating!
