The Perennial Plate

Perennial plate duo

The Perennial Plate is an online documentary series dedicated to socially responsible and adventurous eating.  The episodes follow the culinary, agricultural and hunting explorations of chef and activist, Daniel Klein and filmmaker Mirra Fine. Season One took place over a calendar year in Minnesota where every Monday for 52 weeks, Klein and Fine released short films about good food.  In Season Two, the duo traveled across America, taking the viewer on a journey to appreciate and understand where good food comes from and how to enjoy it. In their Third Season, Klein and Fine went around the world.  From China and India to Argentina and Italy, they explored the wonders, complexities, and stories behind the ever more connected global food system. Season Four finds them spending a full season (winter, summer, spring, fall) in one location.

The Perennial Plate won a Saveur Video Festival award in the culinary travel category and the 2013 James Beard Foundation Award for Video Webcast, On Location.
