Video: Road-Tripping Across America to Find Real Food

A little over a year ago, The Perennial Plate crew left on our "Real Food Road Trip." We traveled over 23,000 miles across 43 states making over 50 films. We went down a canyon in Utah and up a mountain in Washington, under water in California and into the tomato fields of Florida, in the mouth of a Mississippi catfish, and listened to the poems of a Maine seaweed harvester.

We ate wild boar and geoduck, picked apricots that tasted like warm pie and downed 12 types of bugs (some of which we caught ourselves). We made friends with a family in Ohio and self-described rednecks in Arkansas. We heard stories of Americans from generations past and others just off the boat. We were inspired and saddened by what we saw, heard, and experienced. This is the last episode from our road trip. Stay tuned for another season of videos coming soon!
