Link me up: The Perennial Plate


The Traveler's Republic of Tofu from The Perennial Plate on Vimeo.

Knocked for six with the 'flu last week, I was busy making my way through another re-run of The Little Paris Kitchen when I came across Rachel Khoo's recommendation for The Perennial Plate.

These videos are a collection of gorgeous, total-sensory-overload travelogues from across the world, centered around socially responsible eating. Daniel Klein and Mirra Fine began filming short films about food in Minnesota, before taking the idea global, and now check in once a week with short clips from their travels as far apart as India, Turkey, Ethiopia and China. The video blogs speak for themselves- from salad farmers in Minnesota to rooftop gardeners in Hong Kong, but here are a few of my favourites:
