Chef/Activist Daniel Klein’s The Perennial Plate is an online weekly documentary series that began in 2009. Dedicated to socially responsible and adventurous eating, the episodes follow Klein’s culinary, agricultural and hunting explorations across America. The Perennial Plate visits Living the Dream Farm in Welcome, Minnesota, where customers are invited to help butcher the turkeys for their Thanksgiving tables. Watch this warmly intimate (and slightly graphic) portrait of a connection not often experienced. **Viewer discretion is advised.**   After learning to cook at his mother’s bed and breakfast, working in Michelin-starred restaurants and graduating from NYU, Daniel Klein pursued film. His film projects include What Are We Doing Here?, about charitable attempts to eradicate poverty in Africa.
