Prairie Public examines food that shapes our culture

FARGO, N.D., September 21, 2012—Prairie Public is premiering a new television documentary that examines the recipes, menus, ceremonies, and etiquette that are directly shaped by our country’s rich immigrant experience, the history and innovations of food preparation technology, and the ever-changing availability of key ingredients.

“Key Ingredients” will premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 25, at 8 p.m. (CT).

The show explores four aspects of our complex relationship with food:

Entrepreneurial Spirit Many people prefer to eat foods grown by people they know and using local resources.

Eating Implications If you are what you eat, does it also matter when, where, and with whom you eat?

Seed Savers Who are the keepers of the seeds? And are older varieties of seeds important?

Economic Efficiencies Do we sacrifice lifestyle and sense of community when we strive for efficiency in agriculture?

Prairie Public Broadcasting is a non-profit television and radio network that provides a wide range of education, technology and entertainment services to communities, schools and individuals across its coverage area.
