This category has a little bit of everything – from Elmo cooking to the study of pizza boxes to a tribute to one of our favorite chefs – the beautiful thing about the internet is that it can showcase all kinds of different food videos. With a touch of humor, a touch of sentimentality, a touch of nerdiness and a ton of flavor, these are 11 online videos we liked in 2011.
Wisconsin Foodie: Tour de Farms
One of our favorite shows of 2011 is Wisconsin Foodie, which brilliantly explores the food scene in Wisconsin. In this episode, the program shows “Tour de Farms,” a fun combination of bike riding, touring local farms and great local food. A foodie version of the Tour de France.
This week, we see how Crave Brothers Cheese not only makes marvelous mozzarella, so also uses renewable energy to power their factory and beyond.
