VICTORIA, BC--(Marketwired - January 03, 2018) - By popular demand, Mooswa Films' highly anticipated food documentary series, Moosemeat & Marmalade, returns to APTN on January 18th for a third season, bringing audiences an entertaining, insightful and truly rich exploration of culture and cuisine.
In Season Three, co-hosts Art Napoleon and Dan Hayes travel across Canada -- from Vancouver Island up to Yellowknife -- and over to the UK, to explore the topics of food sourcing, food security and food sustainability as these topics relate to the cuisine prepared in each episode. The pair investigate today's most pressing food industry issues while cooking up wild goat off the coast of BC, fishing for monster pike in the Northwest Territories, and wrangling up eel from the Thames.
"Season 3 is more timely than ever. Understanding where our food comes from has always been at the core of what our show is about and people are paying way more attention to that," explains Mike Wavrecan, Producer, Mooswa Films. "It's refreshing to look at the more serious issues around food sovereignty, sourcing, and sustainability with the humour and playfulness that Art and Dan bring to the table. One of the draws to the show is you get the information but in a fun and entertaining way."
Also new this year, Season Three offers audiences the opportunity to take their TV discoveries to a deeper level, via the Moosemeat & Marmalade interactive website and web series, both of which provide fans with a forum for rich behind-the-scenes exploration. Through a beautifully shot mini web series called Food for Thought, Art or Dan meet with locals, activists, farmers, fishermen, and everyday people across the four regions of Canada, to further investigate some of the biggest food industry issues currently facing society -- and to explore the solutions required.
Moosemeat & Marmalade Season Three will air across Canada in French and English on January 18, 2018 on APTN. Check your local listings. Funding support for this show is provided by the Bell Fund and the Canadian Media Fund.
