Video: A Pasta Story

Franco Pedrini started growing biodynamic heirloom wheat back when 'heirloom' wasn't cool and 'biodynamic' was laughed at. For twenty years, he defied his neighbors and labored on his farm and pasta business with his wife and three sons. The resulting pastas are hearty and flavorful, not to mention easy on the gluten intolerant. You can't yet buy his San Cristoforo pasta in the US, but we hope this family's rich story will satiate your appetite. More

Video: Fishing in Sri Lanka After the Tsunami

If you drive down the southern coast of Sri Lanka, you may see fishermen sitting out on wooden, homemade poles about 100 yards off the shore. These are the stilt fishermen. Many of them lost family members to the tsunami of 2004, but they all make it back to the ocean each day to fish for their survival. Watch this heartbreaking and inspiring story. More

Video: Eating the Coconut from Nose to Tail in Sri Lanka

Without the coconut, things in Sri Lanka would be very different. Not only is it the main ingredient in most Sri Lankan dishes, but the entire coconut tree also plays a major role in the non-culinary ways of life. We spent the day with a family of eight on their coconut plantation outside Negombo, where they showed us all the coconut has to offer. We were delighted to eat it in rice, sambal, roti and all that contained this miraculous coconut. More
