Airs Saturday, January 17, 2015 at 1:30 p.m. on KPBS TV
In the second season of this Peabody Award-winning series, A CHEF'S LIFE, Vivian Howard, proprietor of Chef and the Farmer restaurant, explores Southern cuisine with a chef’s modern sensibilities. As Vivian and husband Ben Knight introduce viewers to the farmers and cooks of the American South, they also celebrate their twins’ third birthday and open a second restaurant, the Boiler Room.
"Chicken Lickin'" - As Vivian waits for spring’s vegetables to appear, she pauses to appreciate chicken’s endless capacity as an ingredient. The restaurant’s new best-seller is a whole chicken, pounded and stuffed with broccoli salad. An old family friend fries a chicken the old-fashioned way, served with a side of banana sandwiches. Spring brings the twins’ birthday, and Vivian can’t help but go over the top with celebrations, including the Cadillac of chicken coops to house Theo and Flo’s new baby chicks.
