From bakers to wine makers, chefs and farmers, these episodes trace food back along its generational roots and celebrate the third, fourth, fifth - even eighth - generation sons and daughters keeping family businesses and traditions alive. Food ties us to our predecessors, and it’s what we pass down, in new iterations, to those who come after us. It’s a tangible manifestation of memory and adaptation. By: Anna Oakes
