The hotly anticipated season premiere of Moosemeat & Marmalade season two airs September 7th on the Aboriginal People’s Television Network (APTN). Season two takes co-hosts Art Napoleon and Dan Hayes around the globe exploring new realms of adventure — both in the kitchen and in the wild.
“Season two brings all of the qualities of the first season — the raw and rugged moments, the dynamic chemistry of the hosts, and the topics and food explored — to a whole new level of cooking entertainment and artistic production,” explains Mike Wavrecan, Producer, Mooswa Films. “We know fan expectations are sky high, and can’t wait to serve them up the next level of food entertainment.”
“Though they remain essentially diametrically opposed personalities, Art and Dan have learnt to ‘rub along’ together — and while they greatly enjoy some fun at each other’s expense, they are totally in sync in their passion for sustainable and healthy food harvesting and production,” adds Executive Producer, Hilary Pryor.
Moosemeat & Marmalade show synopsis:
In season two, audiences see Art and Dan travel from BC to Ontario and over to England and Scotland, where the chefs explore a host of classic and not-so-classic cuisines while cooking with guests including the acclaimed UK game hunter Mike Robinson and the eccentric wild rice farmer James Whetung from Northern Ontario. We see the duo venture into some extreme food tastings (singed Porcupine, anyone?) while investigating seaweed farming, and diving for the world’s best scallops off the Isle of Mull, Scotland.
While season one saw Art and Dan discovering each other’s culinary philosophies and expertise, season two sees the duo explore their different cultures collaboratively, in rich and diverse ways. Together they investigate what sustainability and food production look like in a modern world, while foraging for food in every country and city they visit.
