Filming of season 1 is well underway. We have filmed four of the six episodes and have met the most inspirational food and farming friends! Our episodes have taken us across Kentucky, from a feature on the Hindman Settlement School and Grow Appalachia; to an in depth look at hunger in Louisville and how area farmers are partnering with Dare to Care to feed the food insecure; to a profile on the efforts being made to revitalize the farming community of Henry County. We are excited to wrap up season 1 with the filming of 2 additional episodes. We can't wait to premeir on KET later this year. Stay tuned!
We've got great news! We are excited to announce that the pilot episode of The Farmer and The Foodie will premiere on Kentucky Educational Television (KET) August 23rd at 10:30pm EST. The episode kicks off on the farm. Lindsey and I forage through the woods at Foxhollow Farm to gather ramps and tour the grassfed beef herd with head cattleman, Derek. We head into the kitchen next and cook a deliciously farm fresh meal together. Lindsey shares fascinating foodie tips and I recruit some help, an adorable special guest from the barn. We toast al fresco, while the sun sets over the pasture and enjoy grassfed beef short rib tacos, ramp pesto potato salad, and pickles veggies. I can't wait to film more episodes with Lindsey and enjoy meals together on the farm.
At first brush, the short rib can be intimidating, these bone-in cuts requiring a fair amount of time, but in fact little attention, to become fall-off-the-bone tender and mind-blowingly delicious. While short ribs are a favorite for the winter season when slow-roasts reign supreme, we are absolutely in love with the richness they add to tacos, one of our favorite summer meals. Perfect for a crowd, these short rib tacos are sure to knock the socks off of whoever is lucky enough to share them with you!
"It is my pleasure to be producing and directing The Farmer & The Foodie. I've already made the Brussel Sprout Slaw they dice up in our pilot episode and my family loved it; I think you will too!" - Kiley Parker, director/producer
