We have been preparing for episode one of Cooking with Tim, and we went to scout out our first local food producer — Garside's Fruit Farms! We met with Richard, who runs the farm with his wife, and he showed us around their amazing grounds. We don't want to give too much away before the episode, but we are going to be joining them for a post-frost harvest of some of their incredibly delicious heritage apples! We can't wait! Check out some photos from the scout:
The results are in, and 'Cooking with Tim' was announced as one of the winners of Season One of STORYHIVE!
We are thrilled to have been selected to receive $5000 from Telus to produce our pilot episode, and our pre-production has begun! We will be sure to keep you posted on our progress as the show moves forward.
About the project -
Food is such a vital part of not only human existence, but of human experience - and so for multiple reasons deciding what to eat is an incredibly important decision. We have found that learning how to source local ingredients while still preparing high-quality and affordable meals can be intimidating and overwhelming.
Fortunately, fantastic amateur chef Tim Helmuth is here to show us how. 'Cooking with Tim' is a show that believes that the origins of food are just as important as how you prepare it, and it all starts with sourcing the best, freshest ingredients. Tim, along with his friend and co-host Darren, will travel around the Lower Mainland visiting food producers farms, dairies, mills etc. and find out who are the people making the food that we eat every day.
Each episode, Tim will teach Darren how to prepare something delicious highlighting their new ingredients. 'Cooking with Tim' will appeal to a broad range of food fans, whether you are about to begin cooking for yourself or are looking to improve. Old friends Tim and Darren have a fun and inclusive chemistry that will entertain as well as educate while they prepare delicious, local, and affordable meals.
We will keep you updated on the progress of this project - stay tuned!
