Chefs A' Field is a multi-season, nationally distributed television series that explores the critical relationship between great chefs and local farmers. The award-winning public television program features the talents of the nation's most acclaimed chefs—and the farmers who supply them with ultra-fresh ingredients that are superior in taste, nutrition, and cost. The half-hour programs were partly supported by SARE.
Now in its fourth season, the program goes beyond the standard cooking show. Travel along as chefs go from kitchen to farm and back again, selecting seasonal, sustainable ingredients for a dish they later prepare. As part of their process, we learn how vital farmer-chef relationships support farmers and local economies, and ensure responsible, environmentally sound farming.
Chefs A' Field was awarded the 2004 James Beard Foundation Award for best national television cooking show and the 2004 CINE Golden Eagle Award. The CINE Golden Eagle Awards recognizes excellence in film and television and are renowned internationally as symbols of the highest production standards in filmmaking.
