Found Flavors (#810H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Vegetables and herbs, whether they are harvested or found, are part of a heritage of flavors some feel have been lost in modern farming. Sara visits a professional forager whose unlikely career led her to supply the great restaurants of New York with "found food". After a foraging field trip, she joins Sara to make mugwort soup and asparagus with wildflowers. Sara also meets a college professor from Georgia whose mission is to rescue heritage seeds he claims have a richer flavor than those used in industrial farming.

Honey Be Good (#604H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

It's a well-known fact that honeybees are a precious resource for pollinating the food we eat, but they are mysteriously dying off. Sara joins a beekeeper in Savannah, Georgia to discover the secrets of bees and beekeeping. Then they make a honey centered dish that's pure Georgia - rosemary honey and Georgia peach chutney burgers.
