The Search for the Best Ingredients on Earth.


Kelly Cox is the creator, and host, of award-winning The Original Fare, where for the past five years she’s zig-zagged the globe to uncover where our ingredients truly originate from. She’s plucked tea with the women in fields of Sri Lanka, dove for invasive lion fish off the coast of Barbados, and hunted seal on the icebergs of Newfoundland.

The Original Fare streams nationally with PBS Food and is distributed internationally by TVF to China, Thailand, New Zealand, Belarus, and Eastern Europe.

At this point we can’t count the audience but it starts around 22 million.

In 2014— she made her feature directorial debut with Big Dream, which follows seven ambitious young women around the world who will stop at nothing to achieve their Big Dream.

Produced in partnership with Microsoft, UN Women, White House Office of Science & Technology, UNICEF, and National Science Foundation-- Big Dream was selected in the American Film Showcase in partnership with the US State Department. She traveled from villages in northern Zambia, the jungles of Peru, ancient cities in Algeria, guarded communities in Haiti, and neighborhoods up and down the vastness of Thailand- exchanging with young women of all cultures a common goal: Girl Power and Gender Equality. (Oh and music by the amazing Kevin Morby!)
