Vivian hits the road in a food truck to support her first cookbook, a 500-page "culinary love letter." While on the road, she discovers Jefferson’s small batch whiskey in the heart of Bourbon Country, fishes for trout at a farm in the North Carolina mountains, and prepares peppers at a clandestine gathering for chefs in the Virginia hills.
A Chef's Life: Season 5 Season Five finds Vivian embarking on a stew of new adventures. Chef & the Farmer, the farm-to-table restaurant that prompted her return home, celebrates its 10th anniversary. As if that's not enough excitement, Vivian's first cookbook is hot off the press and she sets out on a book tour with a temperamental food truck in tow. In between serving up Tom Thumb and greeting hordes of fans across 30 cities, Vivian discovers small batch whiskey in Bourbon Country, Kentucky, fishes for trout at a farm in the North Carolina mountains, and prepares peppers at a music-and-food-filled gathering for chefs in the Virginia hills. Back in Kinston, broccoli, pears, and rattlesnake beans make an appearance and Vivian gets schooled on persimmons by a familiar friend. This season, the ride is an unpredictable one, explored with good humor, friendly folks, and Southern ingredients - a recipe the viewers have come to know and love.

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
