A character-driven documentary and cooking series that takes viewers inside the life of Chef Vivian Howard, who, with her husband Ben Knight, left the big city to open a fine dining restaurant in small-town Eastern North Carolina.
Season two hits the road with a new roster of Southern ingredients. Vivian and Ben open a second restaurant, plant heirloom apple trees, go pier fishing, hunt ramps and pick up pecans. Vivian prepares something special for 400 food writers and chefs down in the Delta, fixes holiday meals to meet her family's high standards, and returns to New York City to cook the meal of her career at the James Beard House.
