EDUCATIONAL, INFORMATIONAL & ENTERTAINING

This Colorado-based program is a cooking show like no other focusing on ecology, sustainability, family-owned farms and ranches, culinary and cultural diversity, political economy of food, food justice, and voices of youth and disability.  The name of the show refers not primarily to Dr. Folska’s own blindness but to the fact that most of us are also “cooking in the dark” if we do not know where our ingredients come from or how they were produced.
The show seeks to bridge the growing divide between rural and urban Coloradans by exploring the inherent connections between them.  There are three segments in each episode. Firstly, Dr. Folska visits an organic, family-owned Colorado farm or ranch to gather ingredients; in the second, she works with a noted local chef [who has agreed to enter her world and be blindfolded] to experiment with recipes; in the final segment, she works with young people using the recipes to prepare a yummy meal at home.
