Not So Fast

Heliculture, a fancy word for snail farming, is on the rise here in the U.S. In this episode of "tasteMAKERS," come along with host Cat Neville and visit a tiny greenhouse in Cutchogue, New York, where tens of thousands of snails are being hand raised on foraged greens. Almost all of the escargot served in the US is imported either canned or frozen - Peconic Escargots' Taylor Knapp is one of a very few American farmers that produce fresh escargot and snail caviar.

Soy to the World

In fact, Illinois produces the highest volume of soybeans of any state and some of those beans make it to Phoenix Bean, whose tofu you'll see on the menus of some of the city's best restaurants.
