The Global Farm with athlete-turned-urban-farmer Courtney Guerra premieres at 8 p.m. tonight on Tastemade’s streaming network. The seven-part, travel meets farm-to-table series follows the Venice-based culinary farmer and former chef as she travels the world telling stories and conducting interviews with the people on the front lines of the global agricultural system.
Each 30-minute episode spotlights farmers and chefs from Italy, Bulgaria, Croatia, Israel, Turkey, Spain and France and their thoughts on rebuilding the planet’s food system. The series takes an in-depth look at the shortcomings of our current global system, and features Guerra in conversations on the topic with guests that include Michelin-starred chefs Andoni Luis Aduriz (Mugaritz), Josiah Citrin (Mélisse), Armand Arnal (La Chassagnette) and Antonio Dipino (La Caravella).
The season kicks off with Guerra traveling to Italy, where she engages with the lemon farming Aceto’s, whose family has been growing fruit on the cliffs of the Amalfi Coast for generations. She also visits the three-Michelin-star restaurant, La Caravella, with Chef Antonio Dipino, gets up close and personal with the water buffaloes of the Campania region and harvests San Marzano tomatoes from the base of Mount Vesuvius. Subsequent episodes feature the The Stanley Brothers, founders of Charlotte’s Web, one of the biggest CBD companies in the world, renowned Turkish chef Mehmet Gurs, and a visit with Croatian truffle expert Damir Modrušan.
