Does anyone else watch this PBS program? It's kind of an interesting one, well, interesting to me.

The chef and her husband have opened a couple restaurants in North Carolina and do a lot of farm to table menus. She (the chef) researches the way local foods have been made and then creates recipes to serve in her 'upscale' restaurant.

I watched one episode over the weekend where the recipe was for a fish stew. Interesting how different regions of the country make some dishes their own.

She did one on hog butchering and it was really interesting. It's that farming gene I was born with, I guess. I like to see/read about how the entire animal is used and nothing is wasted.....sort of a way to honor the life that was given so we could have food.

Kansas City was a meat packing center for hogs long before cattle came here. Meat packers were quoted as saying they use everything but the squeal. KC now makes a BBQ rub called The Squeal.

My Grandpa owned/operated an alfalfa dehydrading business in Aurora, NB and then, later, owned a cattle feed lot where he would get cattle ready for market. It always interested me in how every bit of the animals is used in some way.

Now, I still do not like to watch the animal 'dispatched', so to say, but I know it's done as humanely (sp? ~ good golly, I'm getting terrible as I age!) as possible so as to not cause too much trauma to the animal.

But I find the fact that she's filming the making of chitlins, rendering fat....etc...interesting.

It's something no one else does.

I often watch it in the early morning hours -- lots of cooking shows on PBS around midnight to 3 a.m. (I'm not a good sleeper). I've enjoyed watching it. I, too, like her segments with the farmers about how and why they grow different veggies, herbs, etc. It's a different kind of cooking show and I really enjoy it.
