The Chef and the Famer by Cynthia Hill
The stakes are high for a rising star chef and her locavore restaurant in Eastern North Carolina.
Catch a sneak preview of this authentically Southern television series, behind the scenes at a highbrow restaurant struggling to make it in one of the most impoverished communities in America -- Kinston, NC.Chef Vivian Howard was making a name for herself in the NYC restaurant world when her father, a hog farmer from Eastern North Carolina made her an offer she couldn't refuse -- to build her very own restaurant. The catch, it would be located in her hometown, a place she swore she'd never return to. Six years in, Vivian and her restaurant, Chef and the Farmer, have won numerous accolades (even semifinalist for James Beard award) but the challenges continue. As the TV series opens, Vivian and Ben are juggling the restaurant with raising twins, and a fire has destroyed the restaurant's kitchen. What happens next is a true testament to what local cooking and eating really mean.
The Wok Next Door by Vittles Film Collaborative
Joe hardly ever spoke to the couple that lived beside him until one day, he smelled garlic and ginger coming from their window. It was a meal that tempted his nostrils. He didn't know anything—yet—about the family history simmering in his neighbors' wok...
This video is the first in a series by Vittles, a film collaborative that tells personal stories through recipes, explores a changing South through its cuisine, and documents the growing food movement in North Carolina through the people sustaining it. With soundtrack with Durham's own Phil Cook from Megafaun
