Episode 49 Around the world, chefs and farmers are using their culinary talents to do more than just nourish. They’re helping reshape society. In a small town in upstate Vermont, meet four men who have created a sustainable food infrastructure. Cross the globe to Hanoi, Vietnam and visit a center that gives street kids the skills they need to work in the restaurant industry. High above Oaxaca, Mexico, the native people of a village play unique roles in their agricultural system.
