PBS Food recently launched a new web series called Original Fare: a travel video series for eating, drinking, and discovering local craft fare. Iron Way Films, the creators of Original Fare produces digital stories from traveling around the world searching out unique and interesting people and places to highlight. Co-Founder and award-winning director Lucas Longacre is the cinematographer and co-founder/creator Kelly Cox is the host/storyteller for this new PBS series. In this episode “Bodega Bay Campside Clams” Kelly joins hunter, angler, gardener, cook and forager Hank Shaw in Bodega Bay California on the hunt for gaper clams. After a down and dirty clam dig (complete with food porn jokes), Hank uses their bounty to make a nontraditional clam chowder with white wine and sea beans on a camp stove.
This new online series shares the genre popularized by The Perennial Plate, Daniel Klein and Mirra Fine’s James Beard Award winning online video adventure series in sustainable eating.
