Season Four of Moosemeat & Marmalade
Premieres on APTN on February 7th.
VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA - January 225, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) (LSN) Highly anticipated food documentary series, Moosemeat & Marmalade, returns to APTN for a fourth season on February 7th, 2019. This popular series from Mooswa Films follows beloved co-hosts, bush cook Art Napoleon and classically trained chef Dan Hayes, as they take viewers on an around-the-world culinary journey that pushes traditional boundaries and explores new flavours and techniques both in the kitchen and out in the wild.
Premiering on February 7th, season four of Moosemeat & Marmalade invites viewers on a globetrotting journey with Art and Dan that’s unlike any other. From spearfishing in the Mediterranean to hunting seals on the frozen Arctic Ocean, the hosts make memorable stops in Nunavut, Spain, Vancouver Island and Denman Island, preparing never before seen dishes along the way like barbecued raccoon, stuffed moose heart and bull testicles - just to name a few.
“We’re so excited for fans of Moosemeat & Marmalade to join us this season on an immersive global adventure. From hunting to foraging to shopping and cooking, no two stops are the same and the food we introduce this season isn’t exactly your standard fare - which makes it all the more exciting,” shares co-host and Producer Art Napoleon. “We introduce new and innovative topics and ingredients along the way, but also stay true to our roots - focusing on protecting traditional food sources and celebrating local food traditions.”
Like seasons past, this new batch of culinary adventures goes beyond just exploring and tasting local foods. Each episode also sparks conversations about trending food topics, including food security and food sustainability. Additionally, this season focuses heavily on exploring the life and culture of urban Indigenous populations, showing audiences the importance of preserving the sacred food traditions, practices and territories that form the basis of these communities.
“Fans of Moosemeat & Marmalade will not just be entertained, they’ll get to learn from Art and Dan as each bring their own unique insight and expertise to the series. Viewers will learn about current hot topics in the industry, including food sustainability on both a local and global level, as well as the roots behind traditional cooking methods," adds Executive Producer Hilary Pryor. “Their knowledge, witty banter and spirited relationship is what keeps fans coming back every season, and audiences will love what we have in store for season four.”
