Rice (#203H) Duration: 26:01 STEREO TVPG

This episode is all about rice and its essential role in Southern cuisine. Sean visits Anson Mills, where Glenn Roberts is blazing a trail to reintroduce the world to the Carolina Rice Kitchen. Carolina Gold rice was once the primary crop in South Carolina and sought-after worldwide. With animation and archival images, a timeline highlights how the Civil War, as well as changes in the agricultural economy, caused Carolina Gold to all but disappear. Glenn is the reason for its resurrection and Sean is its biggest champion. In the fields at Anson Mills, Sean and Glen prepare an Appalachian classic, pilaf. In Louisiana, Chef Donald Link makes jambalaya. And in Nashville, Sean makes Hoppin' John fritters. All of these dishes link to a trip to Senegal where Chef Fati Ly makes the pilau from which all of these rice dishes derive.

Preserve (#205H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVPG

Sean often describes how his family ate growing up this way: "If we were eating, we were eating food from the garden or the basement - it's a way of life." In this episode, Sean shows us what it means to be eating from the basement by exploring the preservation techniques that are critical components of southern culture: drying, salt curing, canning, fermentation, and jamming.

Roots (#206H) Duration: 26:01 STEREO TVPG

Many chefs have their first exposure to cooking at a young age. For Sean Brock, who was born and raised in rural Virginia, it was the experience of his family growing their own food that left a deep impression. In this episode, Sean explores his roots, prepares a typical Appalachian dinner and a Korean meal with his mom and Chef Ed Lee, cooks chicken dumplings, throws down with fellow Appalachian Chef Scott Linden at Blackberry Farms, and makes hoe cakes ... farmer-style.
