We are very excited to announce our new partnership with Tastemade and Youtube.  At the start of our world tour they invited us to create some cooking videos for them and to share our content.  Since we focus our attention on Vimeo, we thought it would be great to have someone spreading the word on youtube.  Also, we felt that we had lost some of the cooking aspect of the show in our international travels and wanted to make sure we got spend some time cooking the food we were eating and learning about. So “In the Kitchen” arm of The Perennial Plate has been born.  On top of all that, we get a lot of comments like “why isn’t Mirra in the show more?”  — She is shy and usually tries to stay off camera, but I’ve convinced her to let a second camera (operated by our friend Kevin Obsatz) capture the filmmaking process, which usually entails me messing up in the kitchen and her making fun of me….

Over the next four weeks, we’ll be releasing cooking segments featuring recipes from India, Japan, China and Sri Lanka.  If you don’t quite catch everything from the video (it goes pretty fast), we will also be posting the details on our recipe page.  Unlike the videos on our website these videos will have advertisements (and they can be for just about anything).  We’ve always made sure to keep ads off our primary videos and it will continue to be that way, but if you want to watch our cooking shows, you may have to sit through an ad about a dating service or corn derived food product.  Still, we are super proud of the new series and hope you enjoy the recipes and the show as much as we enjoyed making them.

btw – the awesome intro was made by Squawk Productions 

ps – please comment on youtube, apparently it really helps.  thanks!
