I’ve been one of the late adaptors to Netflix, actually not signing up til 2 months ago. Only signed up to watch Master of None, the brilliant show by Aziz Ansari. If you haven’t watched it, do it. (Keep watching after ep.3. It get’s better). After finishing that off, I went discovering. Found the must-have Anthony Bourdain programs, and other lesser known shows. Amongst them, Netflix’ own Chef’s Table. I’d heard a couple of foodies talking about it, which probably turned me off.
What won me over, was the way the farm today came about. The farm had been in owned by family previously but Today it has created it’s own eco-system. In order to provide the best possibile cheese and butter for the guests, he needed the best milk. All dairies where trying to push their cows to unbarable measures to meet the demands of their co-op, which just doesn’t make way for good milk. So he had to get his own cows. But cows need good grass to give good milk. For that you need sheep, so he had to get his own sheep. And so the story goes.
Amazing dedication, and an episode that should be shown to all kids in school Today.
