The winners of the “Academy Awards of the food industry”*, The James Beard Awards have been announced and lo and behold, who should make the list but our favourite Intrepid Foodies and partners, The Perennial Plate!
The Real World Food Tour that Intrepid Travel produces in partnership with Daniel and Mirra, the dynamic duo behind The Perennial Plate, won the ‘Video Webcast: On Location’ category.
The win won’t come as a surprise to anyone who has been following Daniel and Mirra’s travels through Japan, China, India and Sri Lanka with Intrepid. We’ve met blue fin fisherman in Japan, rice growers in China, seed savers in India and learnt how to eat a coconut nose to tail in Sri Lanka.
Spain and Italy videos are just around the corner and Daniel and Mirra are currently filming in Turkey.
The underlying message in all the films is about sustainable and adventurous eating that connects us to our food source. It’s a subject we’re passionate about at Intrepid and our new Food Adventures aim to unveil the local culinary delights and specialities of the destinations we visit whilst treading lightly.
Please join us in applauding Daniel and Mirra. Their trophy cabinet is filling-up and it’s turning into a huge year for them. They also recently won a Saveur Magazine award and were nominated for a Vimeo Award. And of course, Daniel got down on one knee when they were Italy. What a year. We are thrilled to be a part of it!
