FROM THE WILD explores the culinary possibilities of wild food in the Canadian wilderness.

The series has been nominated by the James Beard Foundation Awards for 'best webseries on location' and 'visual and technical excellence' - alongside CNN's Parts Unknown and Netflix' Chef's Table. 

Kossowan rounded up some food industry friends keen to adventure, hoping to be able to harvest wild food and cook a thoughtful dish in each episode. The series has heavily matured, with layers of discovery and challenging of norms that extend well beyond the plate.  These are some of the lessons-to-us of the non-prescriptive agenda of the series - not here to tell the viewer how, but rather to share our journey.

FROM THE WILD is currently in production of its seventh season, and available exclusively via Vimeo On Demand. The series is created by the one-man crew of Kevin Kossowan.

“Kossowan’s show is changing the way we see the boreal forests, mountains, lakes, streams and coastlines of Canada. And he makes us question where we got the notion that food should ever come from a grocery store” - Jennifer Cockrall-King, Western Living Magazine

“The term terroir is most closely associated with wine, but an Alberta filmmaker is showing his viewers how to use it in a much deeper culinary context with his original web series From The Wild.” - Dan Clapson, The Globe And Mail

“This. THIS. This is the sort of show I'd want to make, folks. Watch them all” - Hank Shaw, James Beard Award winning wild food author
