Credo Nonfiction received a nomination for a James Beard Award in the Visual & Technical Achievement category for their Taste of Place series alongside Netflix’s Chef’s Table and Street Food. It’s the second nomination and would be the second award for the company after they won Best Documentary in 2016 for their feature film The Starfish Throwers, which they have made free to stream during the pandemic.
The content studio also just released their first quarantine-created production: the first episode of a new series called The Wild Harvest, created in partnership with Forager Chef Alan Bergo. The Wild Harvest is a new foraging & cooking series that celebrates the beauty and bounty of nature and explores what’s culinarily possible with easily foraged wild foods. This series is being created safely during quarantine using social distancing measures and the skeleton crew of just Jesse (filmmaker) & Alan (host).
“At a time when people are finding great amounts of joy through cooking and spending time in nature, this concept feels extremely fitting for life during a pandemic,” said Roesler. “This is a passion project for us both and we hope to find a sponsor in an outdoor gear or cooking brand that can help us continue creating episodes.”
