On this episode of Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking, we head to Fresno with two of California’s hottest chefs, David Kinch and Ludo Lefebvre. First, the group takes a tour of Love Apple Farms in Santa Cruz, where David grows most of the produce for his restaurant, Manresa. Then we are off to an apricot farm near Fresno, where we meet with Philip and Nick Melkonian, who teach us how they pick and dry their products. Finally, Ludo and David head to the kitchen with what they gathered from both field trips to make a feast for friends and family, featuring grilled lamb shoulder with apricots, eggplant caviar, and fennel; curried carrots; and a panna cotta extraordinaire.
