James Beard Award nominated web series “FROM THE WILD” releases S5, a half decade into the exploration of terroir-focused cuisine in Canada. Having caught its stride, the series continues to be rooted firmly in the outdoor seasonal food collecting of creator Kevin Kossowan in his home province, while venturing from British Columbia to Newfoundland tasting place, time, connection, and story. You’d think the series would have covered this culinary ground by now, but we see for the first time the exploration of fiddleheads, bog cranberry, pronghorn, sharptailed grouse, dulse, scallop, periwinkles, caribou lichen, snowshoe hare, eider duck, hedgehog mushroooms, cloudberries, woodcock, and more. Two of the episodes in S5 stray from the plate and focus on the glass, exploring the potential of wild foraged cocktails. S5 is adventure, discovery, creativity, ecology, and intimacy on a plate.  


S5 and all previous seasons of the series are available at www.fromthewild.ca


“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


“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


“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


“His innovative series highlights Canadian regional cuisine in the most rugged way by exploring what the country's landscapes offer, all approached from a hunting/foraging angle with chefs in tow.” - Dan Clapson, Eat North
