Season 1 Episodes | Food Over 50

In our premiere 13-episode season of Food Over 50, veteran television chef David Jackson introduces viewers to our two main FO5O production locations, the arid and prickly beauty of the high desert of Southern California, between Palm Springs and Joshua Tree National Park, and the wind-swept vistas of land and sea in the Western Isles of Scotland hard against the North Atlantic.

From our desert kitchen studio David creates a sumptuous international menu of healthful low sodium, low carb, high fiber and reduced saturated fat recipes, while introducing us to some of the unique agriculture of Southern California. Out-of-kitchen, we visit the date harvest in the arid Coachella Valley, as featured in episode #4 - ‘Sweet Things.’ Then, in episode 8 - ‘Dietary Fats’, we pick and press Olea Europaea for California’s pure and distinctive extra virgin olive oil in Temecula, part of the Anza hill country between Palm Springs and San Diego.

Season 2 Episodes | Food Over 50

Season 2 is anything but leftovers from Season 1. Completely new and healthful culinary themes pop up throughout the new series. David begins at the dietary start of our day with ‘The Breakfast Club.’ Fancy some Dirty Eggs, a high fiber Garden Skillet or Slow Oats? Then David shows us easy and delicious ways to create fresher, lighter and more nutritious recipe ideas for campouts, picnics and open-air tailgate parties in Episode 3 - “Eating Outdoors.’ David’s amazing Fireside Chili is already proving to be the most popular recipe of the whole series! In Episode 8 we explore ‘The Facts About Gluten’ from a wheat field and make Pasta & Pancakes! Then we wrap up the new season with fresher, more wholesome Sauces, Dressing & Relishes in Episode 13 - “Clever Condiments.’

There’s plenty of clever and nutritious recipes in Season 2 to tempt our tastebuds, plus the invaluable advice of our resident Dietician, Elizabeth Kelsey, in ‘Second Helpings.’
