MOVEABLE FEAST WITH FINE COOKING: Fresno

 

Los Angeles chefs Nyesha Arrington and Antonia Lofaso join host Pete Evans as they cook from the heart of the abundant San Joaquin Valley. Nestled in a scenic vineyard, this talented trio grills up lamb saddle with charred peas and a summer sauce verte. Add to that: goat cheese-wrapped blueberries with a pistachio and herb crust, a smoked fish salad, grilled Asian long beans and broccoli with local herbs, and a fantastic Pavlova with blueberries and dried fruit.

 

 

A CHEF’S LIFE
Blueberries and Boiling Over

 

A Chef’s Life is a cooking and documentary series that takes viewers inside the life of Chef Vivian Howard, who, with her husband Ben Knight, opens a fine dining restaurant in her small hometown in Eastern North Carolina. Each episode follows Vivian out of the kitchen and into cornfields, strawberry patches and hog farms as she hunts down the ingredients that inspire her menus. Using a chef’s modern sensibilities, Vivian explores Southern cuisine, past and present – one ingredient at a time. A celebration of true farm-to-table food, the series combines the action and drama of a high-pressure business with the joys and stresses of family life.

 

Blueberries and Boiling Over
After a year recovering from a restaurant fire and re-opening Chef and the Farmer, Vivian and Ben open a burger and oyster bar called the Boiler Room. Vivian boils over with the stress of staffing adjustments, testing new menu concepts and the task of putting 500 pounds of blueberries to good use. She dons a hairnet and bubbles with excitement at the sight of her blueberry BBQ sauce hitting the assembly line.
