Review: A Chef’s Life

Chefs-Life_815x567I love documentaries.


And, I love shows about food.

Due to awesome computer algorithms “A Chef’s Life” popped up as a show I might like, and I loved it.

The show airs on PBS stations around the country and the first two seasons are available on the PBS app for you to watch. I think they are currently filming Season 3, and I can’t wait for the new episodes.

The description from the show’s page describes it this way: “A Chef’s Life is a half-hour character-driven documentary and cooking series that takes viewers inside the life of Chef Vivian Howard, who, with her husband Ben Knight, left the big city to open a fine dining restaurant in small-town Eastern North Carolina.”

One of the things I love best about the show is that a majority of it doesn’t take place in the restaurant. Vivian Howard is all about the whole “farm to table” cuisine and the show actually focuses on what that means.

The show talks about food — especially southern food — in ways I hadn’t seen before. Whether it’s biscuits, turnip greens or Tom Thumb, it’s very cool to see.

It’s been too long …

I have things to say, but they never get to the point that I want to publish them publicly.

That’s about to change.

A) I’m actually starting a new blog to talk about genealogy / family history “stuff”. Once it’s live, I’ll post the new link here.

B) I consume a lot of media, and I’m determined to share more of my thoughts on some of the media I consume.

Also, I’m toying with the idea of getting a little more political, but we’ll see.
