Louisiana (Episode #204H)

In the kitchen, Sean makes jambalaya and his version of the catfish chip. Chef Donald Link of Louisiana takes Sean frogging, then cooks up a frog dish.

Simple (Episode #107H)

KQED Life: Tue, Apr 8, 2014 -- 7:00 PM

In this episode, the freshness of the ingredient and the admonition to "leave the flavor alone" take precedence over complex cooking techniques. David Chang visits a sushi master in Tokyo and a yakitori chef who has been grilling chicken for 30 years. In the kitchen, David makes a simple chicken noodle soup.

Southerners (Episode #201H)

KQED Life: Tue, Apr 1, 2014 -- 7:00 PM

It all began when Sean Brock went looking for Jimmy red corn. That simple journey turned into a lifetime of searching, archiving and reviving lost crops of the South. His partners in crime are legendary owner and operator of Anson Mills, Glen Roberts, and University of South Carolina professor David Shields - a trifecta of seed nerds hell-bent on preserving Southern food heritage. In this episode, Sean travels to Anson Mills to hand-quern Jimmy red corn, discover fire threshing and cook hominy. David Shields visits Sean's R&D lab to experiment with seeds and to tell the story of the Bradford watermelon, a near-extinct fruit with a delicious and deadly history. Sean travels to Blackberry Farm in Tennessee to talk to Master Gardener John Coyenkdall about heirloom seeds. Finally, food scientist Harold McGee talks about the magic of combining corn and lye.
