In an episode all about culinary delights, filmmakers Beth Federici and Kathleen Squires talk about their James Beard documentary America's First Foodie, Luke tells salt harvester Ben Jacobsen that sorting salt sounds like one of the rings of hell (way to butter 'em up, Luke!), and Little Freddie King gives us a taste of New Orleans blues.

Beth Federici and Kathleen Squires
The Director/Producer team behind America's First Foodie: The Incredible Life of James Beard. Beth and Kathleen created a loving cinematic tribute to the man who wrote 22 award-winning cookbooks and "made it okay to be a food geek."

Ben Jacobsen
Ben Jacobsen just taught himself how to make sea salt three years ago, but he's clearly a natural. The New York Times has already sung his salty praises, and some of the best chefs in the country are using his delicate, hand-harvested finishing salts

Little Freddie King
The "master of electricity," New Orleans guitarist and blues royalty Little Freddie King has been playing rural electric blues for over 40 years. His most recent record, "Chasing the Blues" was named "Best Blues Album of 2013" by the Indie Music Association.
