Hi, my name is Daniel Klein. I'm a chef, a filmmaker and an activist.... and I'm making a documentary series about sustainable and adventurous food in Minnesota. Imagine if Michael Pollan, that guy from Man vs. Wild, and Mario Batalli teamed up to make a show -- they would create something like The Perennial Plate.

The episodes follow the culinary, agricultural and hunting explorations that I embark on weekly. Taking place over a calendar year in Minnesota, as well as the surrounding food source destinations, this show takes the viewer on a journey to appreciate and understand where good food comes from and how to enjoy it.

What we eat is becoming more and more important and The Perennial Plate offers a free and entertaining source of alternatives to the factory farm.

There is currently a trailer online www.theperennialplate.com and I have several episodes waiting to air. Because the videos are free, I could use your help.

So donate or not, but please make sure to watch the videos, spread the word and eat well!

Thanks
