AMERICAN EXPERIENCE: Surviving the Dust Bowl

 

THE DUST BOWL chronicles the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history, in which the frenzied wheat boom of the “Great Plow-Up,” followed by a decade-long drought during the 1930s nearly swept away the breadbasket of the nation. Vivid interviews with twenty-six survivors of those hard times, combined with dramatic photographs and seldom seen movie footage, bring to life stories of incredible human suffering and equally incredible human perseverance. It is also a morality tale about our relationship to the land that sustains us—a lesson we ignore at our peril.

MOVEABLE FEAST WITH FINE COOKING: Fruit and Spice Park

 

This series combines flavorful ingredients, top chefs and beautiful locations for the ultimate dining experience. In the third season of the Emmy-nominated series, Australian Chef Pete Evans goes coast-to-coast, and across the sea, traveling to Nashville, Louisville, Miami, San Antonio, Hawaii and other US locations to meet the best chefs in each area and cook a delicious meal that incorporates local and seasonal ingredients.

 

Miami 1 – Fruit and Spice Park
Pete visits Miami and meets up with three fabulous chefs: Michelle Bernstein, Lindsay Autry and Cindy Hudson. The three travel to Paradise Farms to pick-up banana leaves and other fresh veggies for the night’s feast. Then they’re off to the Fruit & Spice Park, a 37-acre botanical garden with exotic fruits and produce where the chefs pick fresh jackfruit and canistel in the gardens and prepare this farm-fresh feast. The menu features grilled snapper in banana leaf with charred okra and tomato stew; farro risotto with squash blossoms and creamy pesto; toasted curried jackfruit pilau with salted cashews; maduros and fresh coconut cream; and canistel islas flotantes for dessert.
