The online documentary series "The Perennial Plate" explores people's complex relationship with food. It has won two James Beard Awards, which are sort of the Oscars of the culinary world.
For the show's fourth season, the filmmakers traveled across Colorado. Episodes include Guatemalan immigrants farming plants from their native country in Alamosa, a cattle ranch in Del Norte, and an archaeologist growing an ancient bean in the southwest part of the state.
The full 10-episode season will be online by mid-October, although several are already available to watch. Daniel Klein is a chef and founded the series. He spoke with Colorado Matters host Nathan Heffel.
