Remember back in March I blogged about the Real Food Road Trip that David Klein had planned for this summer? Well, they’re off!

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 will be traveling across America, taking the viewer on a journey to appreciate and understand where good food comes from and how to enjoy it.  It all began this week!

Watch for them coming to your part of the country this spring, summer, or fall!

Here’s how you can get involved.
