The Perennial Plate: Episode 69


I’ve been behind on The Perennial Plate videos documenting Chef Daniel Klein and photographer Mirra Fine as they traversed the country from May to November this year. But why not watch an episode about foraging for Washington morel mushrooms at the end of December? It’s a nice way to remember what may buried under snow for the next few months.

Feral pigs (also called wild boar) have become a nuisance in Texas, as in other states where they are an invasive species. This episode of The Perennial Plate is about hunting, slaughtering, cleaning, and cooking one. And it’s not for everyone.

Daniel Klein and cameragirl Mirra Fine were down in New Orleans last week for their recent episode of the documentary “The Perennial Plate” focusing on urban gardeners who came back to the city after Hurricane Katrina to rebuild and start making food in the city’s abandoned lots.
