The digital component of Les Fermiers follows a farmer-and-chef duo in action. First, we learn more about a vegetable being highlighted and how its grown from the farmer, and then the chef gives some tips on how to cook and enjoy it.
Each of the six videoclips in the Les Fermiers digital component follows a farmer-and-chef duo in action and has as its main theme a vegetable grown on the farm: rapini, tomato and tomatillo, eggplant, Swiss chard, rabiole, or kohlrabi. We accompany the duo to the garden where the farmer shares his knowledge of the featured vegetable. He tells us about his favourite cultivars, gives some highlights about his crop, as well as tips for growing, harvesting, or conserving it. But since the ultimate goal of market gardening is to have the vegetables eaten, the chef then gives some tips on how to prepare and enjoy it. The recipes are available for downloading as files, which also include interviews with the farmers, as well as a quiz on the show.
