Chesapeake Bay Week Preview
Friday, April 20, 2018 @ 7:00 pm
Join us to watch Eatin’ the Chesapeake: The Five Feasts and two shorts from the new 2018 program, Storyline followed by a discussion with MPT Senior Executive Producer, Mike English.
From the quiet brackish shallows at Elk Neck, Maryland to the rolling hills and beauty of southern Maryland farms, and on to the lively talk and song of Eastern Shore church halls, 400 years of seafood, seashore and traditional cooking is coming home to Marylanders and their neighbors. There are favorite Chesapeake-born dishes from colonial cookbooks, crab shacks, German home-kitchen cooks, southern Maryland farms, Eastern Shore chicken-fry kitchens and Smith Island fresh-off- the-boat Chesapeake supper tables. So pull up a chair and sample the best dishes the Chesapeake region has the offer in Eatin’ the Chesapeake: The Five Feasts.
Storyline is a 90 minute film anthology series, produced by Maryland Public Television, that curates topical, relevant and timely environmental films produced by independent filmmakers. We'll be showing two of the five films in this episode
Waterman explores one veteran man’s look back on his days as a Chesapeake fisherman and his belief that things must change radically to save North America’s largest estuary.
Saba: The Unspoiled Queen showcases an island nation that the filmmaker says should be looked upon by the rest of the world as a model of conservation excellence.
