Endless Feast

Endless Feast

THE ENDLESS FEAST brings together local farmers and food artisans, food lovers and star chefs to explore the connection between the land and the food on our tables. In each episode, a rotating group of chefs celebrate the bounty of a particular region by creating tantalizing menus with local specialties. The dinners are staged in beautiful outdoor locations, from farm fields to vineyards to urban community gardens, celebrating food at its source. During the feast, guests hear about the origins of each dish, including how it is grown, raised, caught or prepared.
