If you pick certain foods, they are bound to have a beautiful backstory. To think about where your food comes from is one thing, but to know the story of the person passionate enough to change their lifestyle in order to produce that food? That is priceless insight into what is on your plate.

This film was brought to life with our good friends Marjorie and Kendall from The Cook's Atelier in Beaune, France. As we left Yan's place after filming this piece, driving through fog that revealed only a  hint of the road ahead, we reveled in what we had seen and felt. There is clarity in seeing someone live their life so completely whole and in keeping with what they value. We have been eager since then to share this story, and also the feelings that we hope come along with it.
