Interesting on so many levels

Comments about PBS A Chef's Life with Vivian Howard: Season One Part 1 DVD:

This young lady and her husband epitomize the best of America. Have a dream? Go for it. Encounter difficulties along the way? Hang tough, work through it. Have friends who produce great fresh ingredients you can use? Take them with you, synergize. Have an inexperienced staff? Lead, teach. Have a spouse? Support each other.

The creativity of the menus and food preparation is a beauty to behold; although I am not a cook, I love a good meal, especially one with a creative twist. The film is genuine and honest, not phony, snooty, cutesy, or fake. Good old fashioned American knowhow on display.

Comments about PBS A Chef's Life with Vivian Howard: Season One Part 1 DVD:

Chef Vivian Howard has really provided insight to the joys and pains of opening, reopening (after a horrible kitchen fire) of their restaurant Chef and the Farmer in St. Kinston, NC.

On a personal level she introduces us to members of the community and for those unfamiliar with these parts of North Carolina, it's true and real.

Her no nonsense approach to cooking, managing her staff (with her husband of course), being a mom of gorgeous twins (boy and girl) and watching her parents, you really get the feeling that she's wide open and willing to share. I have both DVDs and this is a must have series for your DVD library!

Great Show!

Comments about PBS A Chef's Life with Vivian Howard: Season One Part 1 DVD:

Vivian and her family stole my heart from the first bite. I love the field trips she takes us on. This evening I learned a lot about oysters and how to make a sauce for them. Vivian is so talented and yet so down to earth, who wouldn't fall in love with her show? So entertaining and enjoyable. I hope there are years more shows to come. Thank you for the delightful shows I've already seen.

A really good look at Southern life and food. I enjoy watching her cook her mother's and grandmother's recipes. She is really fun to watch. Thanks for sharing your life!
