The Perennial Plate is going around the world!

I’m very excited to announce the best job that I will probably ever have. The Perennial Plate, the online weekly documentary series about sustainable and adventurous eating is going around the world! We are partnering with Intrepid Travel, the responsible, experiential travel company for a series of international episodes that will explore the wonders, complexities and stories behind an ever more connected global food system. We’re announcing the series in a slightly different fashion, with a two-minute cartoon, capturing the history and future of our web series.

The international episodes will begin in October 2012, with Japan and China followed by travel through India, Sri Lanka, Spain, Morocco, Italy, Turkey, Argentina, Brazil, South Africa and Ethiopia. The series will stretch over a period of a year-and-a-half, showcasing the people, practices and communities that support, and are inspiring, sustainable eating around the world. Please watch the video, and join us on the adventure, we’ll be posting travel updates and pictures from the world on The Perennial Plate website.
