Episode Guide »
Town Hall Restaurant - San Francisco, CA; Ramirez Family Farms - Salinas, CA The California strawberry is the star of this show filmed overlooking the misty shores of Monterey Bay. The Pacific breezes and warm California sun nurture a berry so sweet that it is the choice of chefs from around the world. In this episode, great cooking runs in the family as two chefs, brothers Mitch and Steven, show their kids how to cook sweet and savory dishes with this juicy berry. In the field, Mitch and his kids meet farmer Victor Ramirez and his two daughters; the kids happily pick-and eat-their way through the berry rows. The kids also get a lesson in entomology and botany from the "bug detective." Farmer Ramirez shows how a flower becomes fruit, and bug detective Eduardo is on hand with a microscope to show the kids the difference between "good bugs and bad bugs."
