The Perennial Plate is a highly ambitious documentary series founded by chef and activist Daniel Klein — before traveling the world to produce his films, the NYU graduate worked in some of the world’s top kitchens including The Fat Duck, Craft and Mugaritz. His latest work is an upcoming film – to be released in early 2014 – documenting Cook It Raw's event in Charleston, South Carolina this past October.
Cook It Raw aims to bring together emerging culinary talents (chefs from around the globe) and traditional food producers to explore the possibilities of cuisine. The organization uses cuisine to address environmental, social and cultural issues. Their latest gathering in South Carolina brought together chefs from around the world to discover, collaborate, hunt, fish, forage and, of course, cook in the Low Country for a week. Check out Perennial Plate’s trailer for the film – which includes Sean Brock talking about “some pretty deep shit” – below.
