IOWA PUBLIC TELEVISION
IPTV Presents a New Season of Iowa Ingredient Fridays at 6:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 11:30 a.m.
Johnston, IA - Season 3 of IPTV's Iowa Ingredient premieres April 4 at 6:30 p.m. The season will feature sizzling new episodes exploring fresh ingredients grown in Iowa, the passionate farmers who produce them and the creative chefs who cook with them.
Host Charity Nebbe explores beets, eggs, Maytag Blue Cheese, peppers, squash, tomatoes, trout, walnuts and strawberries this season. Iowa Ingredient features talented chefs who use local ingredients to create delicious recipes.
Nebbe said, "I think for me the best part of Iowa Ingredient is seeing people who are doing really innovative things with food. The local food movement is a few years old, but it's still small. We're at the beginning of something that's going to be really big, and we are featuring the pioneers who are passionate about growing something different in Iowa, and making sure the food gets to consumers when it's fresh, flavorful and beautiful."
Iowa Ingredient Senior Producer Deb Herbold said, "The people we're talking with are often young families who are in this for the long haul. It's really amazing seeing the both the new and experienced growers, farmers and chefs evolving into this new kind of producer and taking some real chances to make Iowa a pioneer in this initiative."
