MOVEABLE FEAST WITH FINE COOKING: Michigan Countryside

 

On this episode of Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking, we are on the road with three top chefs from metropolitan Chicago and travel three hours into the neighboring Michigan countryside for the makings of a true Midwestern meal. Cooking by the beautiful lakeside party are The Hearty Boys, Dan Smith and Steve McDonagh. Joining them is acclaimed pastry chef, Gale Gand. The entire meal is sourced within a radius of 5 miles from Buchanan, Michigan’s center city, including some gorgeous summer veggies, corn meal from the town’s old mill and beer from a local brewery. The menu includes, Breakfast Radishes with Butter and Sea Salt, Kale Salad with Pickled Beets, Lardons, Blue Cheese, and Honey Clove Vinaigrette, Ramp-Stuffed Sirloin Roll with Hazelnuts and Michigan Cherry Sauce, and a Midwest favorite – Cornmeal Spaetzle with Charred Grape Tomatoes and Asparagus.

Kaneko’s Monumental Risk

Kaneko’s Monumental Risk

 

This documentary explores the life and work of Japanese-American sculptor and artist Jun Kaneko. Kaneko is known for building the largest ceramic art pieces in the world, with some towering more than 13 feet without any interior support. Over the course of his 50-year career, Kaneko has created massive public art installations in plazas, gardens, airports, city parks and convention centers. The film follows Kaneko working around the world in places like San Francisco, Kyoto, New York, Nagoya, Chicago, Puerto Vallarta and his adopted hometown of Omaha. It also looks at the evolution of his work from painting in a realistic style to his abstract sculptures to his risky opera design with the San Francisco Opera’s production of The Magic Flute. The profile culminates with a look at the multi-million dollar creativity center he built in Omaha to encourage people to unleash our risk-taking and creative sides.
