Asheville chef’s reality series ‘From The Source’ debuts on Nov 19

Cúrate chef Katie Button is on a quest to unearth the origins and stories of ingredients found at farm stands and menus in her new reality series, “From The Source.”

Button ventures out of the kitchen and into the fields and seas with farmers, fishermen and artisans from across the country. Together, they discuss and demonstrate responsible sourcing and production practices of food from seafood to cheese to honey.

In “From The Source,” Button becomes a part of the process by working alongside her hosts feeding cattle, processing whey, fishing from sailboats and acquiring honey from the hive.

Katie Button helps catch large fish during a day out fishing on her original series, "From The Source," available for streaming on discovery+ and the Magnolia app.

“From The Source” debuts on Magnolia Network on Nov. 19. Episodes are available for streaming on discovery+ and the Magnolia app.

“Creating this series with the Magnolia team has been a labor of love and such an exciting opportunity to really get hands on and learn how food is made, directly from the source. I’m moved by the passion and hard work that goes into producing incredible ingredients — it makes everything we eat taste better,” Button said in a press release. 

In the season premiere, Button visits Chapel Hill Creamery, a dairy and cheesemaker in North Carolina, where she is taught how milk is processed into cheese varieties. In the third episode, she visited the Center for Honeybee Research to learn about bees and how honey is made.

Katie Button feeds the dairy cows as Chapel Hill Creamery co-owners Flo Hawley and Portia McKnight look on, as seen on "From the Source," Season 1.

“Whether it was milking cows at Chapel Hill Creamery or climbing trees at Green Heart and shaking apples from the branches, ‘From the Source’ gives me the opportunity to take a deep dive into individual ingredients, get to know the people behind them, and to share their stories, shaping who I am as a person, chef, mother and business owner,” she said in the release
