9 x 30’

There’s a growing trend in Canadian cuisine: aboriginal-themed restaurants have begun opening up across the country.

They use modern methods and mass-produced ingredients. Serving game is illegal in most of the country. And fruit and vegetables are often imported from faraway lands. To get a truly authentic aboriginal meal, you have to go to the source. To the wilderness. To the WILD GAME.

This docuseries follows Top Chef Canada finalist Rich Francis, to the four corners of Canada’s countryside. Out in the wilderness, Rich joins hunters and gatherers, farmers and fishermen to learn, catch, and cook the most spectacular meals using only the best natural, wild ingredients. To be clear, this is no cooking show! This is about the diversity of indigenous culture and how it is inextricably linked to… food. It’s about communities and people deeply rooted in the past but always moving forward, as told through the eyes - and taste buds - of a passionate man who sees cuisine as a metaphor for life…
