It's fresh! Fresh recipe ideas from today's most innovative chefs, combined with farm-fresh food. Both come straight out of the field, right to your home. The key is the series' celebrated host, Laura McIntosh. "You've heard of MTV's 'Behind the Music'?," says Laura. "I see our show as 'Behind the Food.'"

Then she brings them together with culinary wizards that turn this bountiful harvest into fresh, healthy, gourmet meals the whole family will enjoy. The program features recipes and ideas you can bring home. " You don't have to spend a day hunting down specialty food stores to find exotic ingredients," says Laura. "Our recipes are as practical as they are delicious, designed to enhance the food's natural flavors. We keep it simple so the dishes are fun and easy to prepare."
