On today's THE FOOD SEEN, Chef Matthew Lightner of Atera, forges nature and science, foraging inspiration from the land, and applying modern techniques to recreate it's simplicity. A 15 course tasting menu, on a 13 seat bar or walnut slab table 5 top, next to a vertical garden "living wall" full of herbs and foliage, Matthew's thoughtful cuisine questions our perception of what "farm to table" really means. This episode has been brought to you by Susty Party.
