On a chopping board, string beans spell "Kid Diners."

Xander says YOU'RE
WATCHING KID DINERS!

Xander is around 11, with short blond hair and wears a colourful checked shirt.

The announcer says HEY KIDS,
COME JOIN ME IN THE KITCHEN!

Kids say INSIDE ACCESS!
(UPBEAT MUSIC)

A caption reads "Aynalem."

Aynalem is around 12, with long curly brown hair with bangs in a ponytail. She wears a white tip and a white cardigan.

Aynalem says I LOVE IT!

Clips show images of the kids making all kinds of foods.

The caption changes to "Xander."

Xander cuts a pizza and says OH, I WANT
TO EAT IT RIGHT NOW!
THAT LOOKS SO GOOD!

In animation, a cat and a dog chop the words "Kid Diners" out of food on a cutting board.

Kids shout WE WONDER!

Aynalem says I'M AYNALEM AND ON TODAY'S KID
DINERS I TRY A POGO STICK.
AH, WORST POGO
STICK EVER!
XANDER AND DAVE,
THE CAMERAMAN...

Xander grabs a grape tomato and says WE'RE GONNA PICK A
BUNCH OF THESE BABIES.

Aynalem says...TRY A TOMATO.
WHAT WAS THAT?
YOU'RE WATCHING KID DINERS.

(music plays)

An animated map shows the location of Kingston, Ontario.
Different kids appear inside an animated plate.

A boy with curly brown hair says I REALLY LIKE ROTI.

A girl with braids says I'VE NEVER TRIED ROTI.
I DON'T EVEN
KNOW WHAT IT IS.

The boy says IT'S LIKE THIS SORT OF, LIKE,
BREAD THING AND THERE'S, LIKE,
A LOT OF THINGS
YOU COULD ADD.
THE ONLY ONE I HAD WAS
JUST, LIKE, POTATO ROTI.

Animated forks say YUM-YUM.

The boy says AND SOME CHICKEN.

A girl with curly hair says USUALLY I LIKE CREPES
WITH CINNAMON AND SUGAR.

(music plays)

Xander says KINGSTON IS A
COOL CITY IN CANADA.
AND WHEN IT COMES TO HOME
COOKING AWAY FROM HOME,
THEY HAVE A LOT OF RESTAURANTS.

Aynalem says WE'RE IN
KINGSTON, ONTARIO.

Xander says WHERE WE'RE GONNA TRAVEL
THE WORLD WITH OUR MOUTHS.

Aynalem says FIRST UP, SALLY'S
ROTI SHOP.

Xander says HEY, THAT RHYMES.

Aynalem says SALLY AND HER HUSBAND
BRING TRADITIONAL CARIBBEAN
COOKING TO KINGSTON.

Sally says WELCOME TO SALLY'S.

Sally is in her fifties, with short red hair and wears glasses and a red T-shirt.

The kids say NICE.

Aynalem says HI.

Sally says YOU GUYS READY TO
MAKE SOME ROTI?

The kids say YEAH!

Sally says COME ON IN.

Xander says SO, SALLY SAYS WE HAVE TO TRY
TO PUT THESE HAIRNET THINGYS ON.
HAVE YOU EVER
DONE THAT BEFORE?

Aynalem says NO, I HAVE NOT.

Aynalem puts the tangled hairnet on top of Xander’s head and says AH, LIKE THAT.

Xander does the same.

Aynalem says LOOKS
PRETTY GOOD.

Zander says LET'S GO.

Sally says THIS ROTI CALLED DHALPURI,
AND THIS IS THE DHAL
AND WE'RE GOING TO
SEASON THE DHAL NOW.

Xander says DHAL IS A TYPE
OF SPLIT PEA OR LENTIL.

Sally says THIS ONE IS
CALLED GEERA.

Aynalem says GEERA, IS IT SPICY?

Sally says NO, THIS IS
NOT SPICY.
SO YOU CAN STIR
THAT UP AND MIX IT.

Aynalem says SO, ROTI IS A
SANDWICH WRAP?

Sally says YES, IT IS, BUT IT'S VERY
BIG, IT'S, LIKE, 12" TO 15."

Aynalem says WOW, THAT'S VERY BIG.

They feed dough into a rolling machine.

Aynalem says OH, THAT LOOKS COOL!

(music plays)

Xander says THIS IS WAY EASIER THAN
USING A ROLLING PIN.

Aynalem says HOW MANY TIMES DO
YOU HAVE TO ROLL IT?

Sally’s husband says THREE TIMES.

Aynalem says THREE TIMES?

Sally’s husband says YUP.

Aynalem says IT STARTED WITH A LITTLE
BALL AND THEN NOW IT'S HUGE.

Xander says CAN I FEEL IT?

Sally’s husband says YEAH.

Aynalem says VERY THIN.
TIME TO MAKE
THE CHICKEN FILLING.
WHAT'S THAT?

Sally says GRIND GARLIC, SO YOU PUT
THIS TO SEASON UP THE MEAT.
THIS IS CILANTRO.
THIS IS SALT.

Aynalem says ALL OF IT?

Sally says YEAH.
THEY'RE GOING TO
BE A LITTLE SPICY.
I PUT 6
HABANERAS IN.

Aynalem says DON'T WORRY,
I DON'T MIND.
SIX HABANERAS, MMM, IT'S

Sally says SOYA SAUCE.

Aynalem says SOYA SAUCE?

Sally says YEAH.

Aynalem says WHAT DOES THAT DO?

Sally says IT GIVE THE CHICKEN
A NICE COLOUR.

Aynalem says OH, THAT
LOOKS SO COOL.

Sally’s husband says THIS IS THE
CURRY POWDER.

Aynalem says WOW, THAT LOOKS COOL,
IT'S ALL BUBBLY.

Xander says THE SMELLS ARE
SO CARIBBEAN.

Sally says YOU SEE HOW THE CURRY
IF FRYING THEM HERE NOW.
NOW, I'M GOING TO PUT
THE CHICKEN IN THE POT.

Aynalem says HOW LONG DOES IT HAVE
TO SIT IN THE POT FOR?

Sally says ABOUT HALF AN
HOUR COOKING.

The kids put a lid on the pot and says SEE YOU
LATER CHICKEN.

Sally says IT'LL ONLY TAKE A
FEW SECONDS, RIGHT,
AND AS SOON AS IT START
MAKING THE BUBBLES.

Xander puts the dough on the cooking surface and keeps it flat with a pastry roller.

Xander says I'M MAKING A ROTI.

Sally says THE OIL KEEP IT
MOIST AND SOFT.

He flips it.

(music plays)

Xander says IS ROTI ONE OF
YOUR FAVOURITE FOODS?

Sally says YES, IT IS.

Xander says SO, THIS IS LIKE HOME COOKING,
BUT INSTEAD OF BEING IN
THE CARIBBEAN
WE'RE IN KINGSTON.

Sally says YES, IT IS HOME
COOKING.

Xander says CHICKEN'S READY.
THAT LOOKS SO GOOD.

Sally says SO THAT IS
CURRY POTATO.

He puts some mashed potatoes and chicken on the roti.

(music plays)

Xander says THESE ROTIS
SMELL DELICIOUS.

(music plays)

They wrap the roti.

Sally’s husband says HERE WE GO,
THAT'S YOUR LUNCH.

(music plays)

They sit down and eat.

Aynalem says I'VE NEVER HAD A ROTI
BEFORE, IT'S REALLY GOOD.
WHY DID YOU OPEN
A ROTI RESTAURANT?

Sally says I WANTED TO BRING
IN ROTI IN KINGSTON
TO SEE IF
PEOPLE LIKE IT.

Xander says XANDER LIKES HIS ROTI.

Sally says AND THEY
LOVE IT, TOO.

Aynalem says YEAH.

Xander says THIS IS REALLY GOOD.

Aynalem says YEAH, I'M GONNA COME
HERE MORE OFTEN.

Sally says NICE, AND YOU'RE
WELCOME ANYTIME,
BUT YOU HAVE TO
WORK WHEN YOU COME.

Aynalem says OKAY. (LAUGHS)

(music plays)

Aynalem says ROTIS ARE AWESOME.
NOW IT'S TIME FOR THE
BOTH OF US TO GO ON
OUR FOOD ADVENTURES.
THIS IS CHEF STEV WHO RUNS
AN ITALIAN RESTAURANT HERE IN
KINGSTON, AND HE'S SENDING ME
TO PICK UP A KEY INGREDIENT.
(HORN HONKS)

Xander says I'M AT FORMAN
FAMILY FARM.
THEY HAVE TWO BIG GREENHOUSES
THAT ARE FULL OF TOMATOES.
I CAN'T WAIT
TO CHECK IT OUT.
HELLO, NATASHA?

(music plays)
HELLO?

(music plays)
IS ANYBODY HERE?
DO YOU GET THE FEELING
WHEN YOU'RE ALONE THAT
SOMEBODY'S FOLLOWING YOU?

An announcer says XANDER BOULARD
STARS IN A NEW MOVIE -
THE TOMATO MONSTER!

Black and white images show Xander walking in a tomato farm.

A tomato says HELLO XANDER.
(SCREAMING)

The tomato chases Xander.

Xander grabs a tomato on the floor and says WOW, LOOK AT THIS ONE.
IT'S ALMOST READY TO EAT.
HELLO, NATASHA?

Natasha is in her thirties, with blond hair in an updo. She wears green shorts and a black T-shirt.

Natasha says SIXTY-NINE, 1,400.

Xander says OH HEY, NATASHA.

Natasha says OH HEY, XANDER.

Xander says WOW, YOU GUYS HAVE A
LOT OF VEGETABLES HERE.

Natasha says TOMATOES ARE FRUITS.

Xander says WHO'D HAVE THUNK IT?
NO, VEGETABLES.

Natasha says NO, THEY'RE A FRUIT.

Xander says WHO KNEW?
VEGETABLES.

Natasha says NO, FRUITS.

Xander says I THINK NATASHA'S
RIGHT, THEY ARE FRUIT.
IT'S BECAUSE OF
HOW THEY GROW
AND BECAUSE THEY HAVE
SEEDS INSIDE THEM.

Natasha says DID YOU KNOW WE HAVE, LIKE,
TONS OF DIFFERENT KINDS?

Xander says BUT I'M HAVING TOO
MUCH FUN WITH THIS.
OF VEGETABLES?

Natasha says NO, OF FRUITS.
THERE'S YELLOW AND
PURPLE AND STRIPED ONES.
LET'S GO PICK
SOME FRESH ONES.

Xander says SURE.

Natasha says ALL RIGHT,
LET'S GO.

Xander says VEGETABLES.

The black and white clip rolls again.

Xander puts two tomatoes on her eyes and says I'M A TOMATO MONSTER.
TOMATO MONSTER.

Natasha says SO YOU FIND A YELLOW ONE AND YOU
JUST SNAP 'EM WITH YOUR FINGER,
JUST LIKE THAT.

Xander says CAN I PICK THIS ONE?

Natssha says SURE, IF THEY HAVE COLOUR
THEY'RE GOOD TO GO.

Xander says SO, WHY DO YOU GROW YOUR
TOMATOES IN GREENHOUSES?

Natasha says WELL, 'CAUSE THE TOMATO PLANTS
NEED TO BE PROTECTED FROM
THE WEATHER AND FROM PREDATORS,
LIKE YOUR SQUIRRELS AND RACOONS,
WE ONLY WANT
THE GOOD INSECTS.
DID YOU KNOW WE BRING BUMBLEBEES
INTO THE GREENHOUSE EVERY MONTH?

Xander says REALLY?

Natasha says YES, TO HELP
POLLINATE THE FLOWERS.

An animated bee appears and says POLLINATE.

Xander says WHAT KIND OF
SOIL DO YOU USE?

Natasha says WE ACTUALLY DON'T
USE ANY SOIL.
THESE PLANTS ARE GROWN
ENTIRELY IN WATER.

Xander says WHAT?

Natasha says THEY'RE CALLED
HYDROPONIC TOMATOES.

Xander says WOW!

Natasha says DO YOU KNOW THEY GROW
UP TO 15CMS EVERY WEEK?
THEY GET REALLY TALL, UP
TO THE TOP OF THE STRINGS
AND THEN YOU HAVE
TO LOWER THEM.
DO YOU WANT TO TRY
LOWERING THE PLANTS?

Xander says SURE.

The black and white clip rolls.

Xander says THIS IS MY TOMATO VISION.
TOMATO VISION.

Natasha says LET'S GET THE CART.
THE CART?

Xander says WHOA, WHAT'S THAT?

Natasha brings a wheel cart and says OKAY, STEP UP, GRAB THE BOBBIN,
SO YOU'RE GONNA SQUEEZE UP HERE,
AND THEN YOU JUST
LOWER THE PLANT.
WE'LL DO IT AGAIN, AND THEN
WE GO TO THE NEXT PLANT.

Xander says THE LOWERING THE
VINES STEP WAS FUN,
BUT IT'S TIME FOR ME
TO GO MEET MY CHEF.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHOWING
ME AROUND YOUR GREENHOUSE TODAY.
SO, DO YOU THINK MAYBE I CAN
TAKE ONE OF THESE CARTS
FOR A SPIN?

Natasha says AH, YEAH.

Xander says WOO-HOO, I LOVE TOMATOES!
WOO-HOO!

A terrifying voice says HA-HA-HA-HA-HA.

An animation rolls.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW THAT TOMATOES ARE
A WONDER FRUIT THAT ARE FULL
OF SO MANY GOOD
THINGS FOR YOUR BODY?
TOMATOES ARE HIGH IN LYCOPENE,
AN ANTIOXIDANT THAT IS GOOD
FOR YOUR HEART.
COOKED TOMATOES ACTUALLY HAVE
MORE LYCOPENE THAN RAW ONES,
MAKING THEM EVEN
HIGHER IN ANTIOXIDANTS.
TOMATOES ARE ALSO PACKED
WITH VITAMINS A AND C,
CALCIUM AND POTASSIUM, ALL
OF WHICH HELP YOUR BODY GROW.
TOMATOES ARE SOME OF THE MOST
VERSATILE FRUITS OUT THERE
BECAUSE YOU CAN HAVE THEM
RAW, COOKED, BOILED, IN SALSA,
AS KETCHUP, SOUP, TOO,
AND EVEN AS A DRINK.
SO, THERE'S NO EXCUSE
FOR NOT EATING TOMATOES!

(music plays)

Images of a café named Geneva appear.

Aynalem says THIS IS THE
CREPE CAFÉ I'M GOING TO,
AND THIS IS CHEF GENEVIEVE.

Genevieve is in her sixties, with short wavy blond hair. She wears a red blouse.

Aynalem says BUT FIRST, SHE'S SENDING ME ON
A FOOD ADVENTURE TO GET GARLIC.
WHO PUTS GARLIC IN CREPES?

(music plays)

Aynalem walks along a road towards a garlic field.

Aynalem says OH, WOW, THAT IS A
LONG WALK FROM KINGSTON.
I SHOULD HAVE TAKEN A CAB.
I'M AT THE BEST SMELLING FARM IN
THE WHOLE WORLD, A GARLIC FARM.
HI, I'M AYNALEM.

Joanie says HI, I'M JOANIE,
NICE TO MEET YOU.

Joanie is in her late forties, with short red hair and she wears black shirts and a gray tank top.

Aynalem says SO, I HEAR YOU
RUN A GARLIC FARM.

Joanie says WE SURE DO, AND THE GARLIC'S
GROWING RIGHT OUT THERE,
AND LET'S GO
PICK SOME.

Aynalem says OKAY.

An animated head of garlic says AH GARLIC!

Aynalem says SO, THIS IS
A BIG FARM,
YOU DON'T ONLY GROW
GARLIC HERE, DO YOU?

Joanie says NO, WE GROW ALL KINDS OF CROPS,
BUT OUR MAIN ONE IS GARLIC.
IT STARTS HERE AND IT GOES
ALL THE WAY DOWN THERE.

Aynalem says WOW, WHAT'S THIS?

Joanie says THAT IS WHAT WE
CALL A GARLIC SCAPE.
AT THE END IS
A GARLIC SEED.
YOU SNIP THIS OFF AND ALL THE
ENERGY GOES TO THE GARLIC BALL,
AND THE GARLIC
BALL GETS BIGGER.

Aynalem says WHEN DO YOU NORMALLY
PLANT THESE?

Joanie says WE PLANT THIS IN OCTOBER,
SO IT WINTERS ALL LONG,
IT STAYS IN THE
GROUND ALL WINTER.

Joanie puts a shovel on the ground, jumps on it and says SO WE GO DOWN, AND AS YOU
PULL BACK, YOU PULL UP.
SO, THIS ISN'T REALLY SMALL, BUT
IT WOULD BE A LOT BIGGER IF WE
HAD TAKEN THE GARLIC SCAPE OFF,
AND NORMALLY WE PULL IT WHEN THE
LEAVES ARE STARTING TO DIE OFF,
IT'S NORMALLY THE END OF JULY.

Aynalem says CAN I TRY
DIGGING ONE UP?

Joanie says ABSOLUTELY, SO GET RIGHT
UP THERE, THAT'S IT,
JUMP A LITTLE MORE.

Aynalem says THIS IS ACTUALLY HARDER
THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE.
AH, WORST
POGO STICK EVER!
OKAY, I'LL HELP

Joanie says YOU PULL BACK.

Aynalem says I DIG GARLIC AND
GARLIC DIGS ME.

Joanie says AH, GOOD ONE.
OH, LOOK AT THAT.

Aynalem says WOW, IT'S BIG.

Joanie says VERY BIG, THAT'S

Aynalem says A BEAUTIFUL ONE.
HEAVY.
I WOULD GET TIRED
OF PULLING THESE.
YOU DO THIS ALL BY
HAND, ALL OF THIS?

Joanie says YES. THERE'S 15,000
IN THIS YEAR.

Aynalem says ALL THIS GARLIC
BY HAND, WHOA!

Joanie says IT'S ALL
PLANTED BY HAND.
ONE CLOVE, YOU SEPARATE ALL
OF THESE, THERE'S NORMALLY
7, 8 CLOVES IN THERE, AND
EACH CLOVE WILL GIVE YOU ONE
GARLIC BULB, AND THEN WE KEEP
IT IN A COOL, DRY PLACE.
THEY SAY NEVER TO
PUT IT IN THE FRIDGE,
BUT WE DO ACTUALLY FREEZE
IT AND IT STAYS OKAY.
YOU WANT TO SEE THE NEXT
STEP IN THE PROCESS?

Aynalem says YES, I DO.

Joanie says OKAY, FOLLOW ME.

Aynalem pretends to eat the garlic and says UNG-UNG-UNG.
GARLIC, DIG IT!

Joanie says SO, THIS IS THE NEXT STEP,
WE DRY ALL THE GARLIC.
THIS WHOLE BARN WILL
BE FULL OF GARLIC,
BUT WE PUT IT ON SOMETHING SO
THAT AIR CAN GET AROUND IT.
IT'S VERY, VERY
IMPORTANT THAT IT DRIES.
IF IT DOESN'T DRY AND IT GETS
WET, IT CAN GET MOULD ON IT.

Aynalem says WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO
COOK WITH GARLIC?

Joanie says WELL, EVERYTHING BUT DESSERT
IS WHAT I TELL PEOPLE.
I USE IT FOR SALADS,
I USE IT IN STEWS,
I USE IT IN
LASAGNES AND PIZZAS.
I USE IT IN EVERYTHING I
CAN BECAUSE IT'S SO GOOD
AND IT'S SO
GOOD FOR YOU.

Aynalem says SO JUST TO BE CLEAR, GARLIC
IS VERY HEALTHY FOR YOU?

Joanie says WELL A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK IT
IS AND THAT'S WHY THEY EAT IT.
WE EAT IT JUST BECAUSE
IT TASTES GOOD.
EVERYTHING IS
BETTER WITH GARLIC.

Aynalem says YEAH, I AGREE, TOO.
SO, I'M SUPPOSED TO TAKE
SOME TO THE RESTAURANT,
IS THAT OKAY IF
I TAKE A FEW?

Joanie says YOU KNOW WHAT?
I ALREADY BUNDLED SOME
UP FOR YOU READY TO GO.

Aynalem says OH, THANK YOU!
YOU'RE WELCOME.

(music plays)

Xander says NOW THAT AYNALEM AND
I HAVE OUR HOME AWAY FROM
HOME INGREDIENTS, IT'S
TIME TO START COOKING.

Xander enters the restaurant and says HEY STEV.

Steve says HEY XANDER, HOW
ARE YOU DOING?

Stev is in his fifties, clean-shaven and with short wavy gray hair. He wears glasses and a brown shirt.

Xander says GREAT.

Stev says COME BACK IN THE KITCHEN
AND WE'LL COOK SOMETHING.

Xander says I GET TO MAKE
SOME FRESH PASTA.
HOLY, WHAT KIND
OF ROBOT IS THIS?

Stev says WELL THIS IS A
PASTA EXTRUDER.
IT'S A BIG MACHINE
FOR MAKING PASTA.

A robotic voice says HEY XANDER, I'M THE
PASTA MACHINE ALL RIGHT.

Xander says I'M A FRESH
PASTA ROOKIE.

Stev says TODAY, WE'RE GONNA
MAKE TAGLIATELLE.
I GOT THE FLOUR
IN THERE ALREADY,
NOW I'VE GOT
A LOT OF EGG.

Stev grabs a jar full of crashed eggs and says OKAY, SO I'M JUST GONNA
POUR THAT RIGHT IN THERE
WITH THE FLOUR.

An animated egg says EGGCELLENT.

Xander says THAT'S A LOT OF
EGGS GOING IN THERE.
SO, HOW MANY EGGS
DID YOU PUT IN THERE?

Stev says THAT WAS 18 WHOLE
EGGS AND 18 EGG YOLKS.

Xander says WOW.

Stev says THIRTY-SIX
ALL TOGETHER.

Xander says THAT'S A LOT OF EGGS.

Stev says THAT'S A LOT OF EGGS.
WE CLOSE THIS AND
WE'LL START 'ER UP.
NOW THAT'S GONNA TAKE ABOUT
15, 20 MINUTES TO KNEAD.
WE CAN GO UPSTAIRS AND PREPARE
ALL THE OTHER INGREDIENTS,
WHICH YOU KNOW
INCLUDES TOMATOES.

Xander says AWESOME, LET'S GO.

Stev says SO, FIRST WE GOT
THESE CHERRY TOMATOES,
AND YOU'RE JUST GONNA TAKE
THE LITTLE TOPS OFF THERE
AND PUT THEM
RIGHT IN HERE.

He points at a pan.

Xander puts the top in the pan.

Stev says NO, NOT THOSE.

Xander says OH.

Stev says THE TOMATO PART.
(LAUGHS)

Xander says SO, WHAT'S THE OFFICIAL
NAME OF THE DISH WE'RE MAKING?

Stev says WELL, I JUST CALL IT TAGLIATELLE
WITH CHERRY TOMATOES,
BOCCONCINI AND BASIL.

Xander says WHAT'S THAT?

Stev says BASIL, GARLIC PUREE
WITH LOTS OF OLIVE OIL.
WE USE A LOT OF
OLIVE OIL HERE.

Xander says IT SMELLS LIKE BASIL.

Stev says YEAH.

Xander says AND GARLIC.

Stev says AND GARLIC.

Xander says THE SAUCE IS
REALLY SIMPLE.

Stev says TOMATO SAUCE JUST TO GIVE
IT A LITTLE MORE SAUCE.
THESE LITTLE GUYS ARE
CALLED BOCCONCINI.
THEY'RE A FRESH MOZZARELLA.
SO ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS
BREAK THIS INTO MAYBE
THREE PIECES EACH,
LIKE THAT.

Xander says CAN I JUST TRY
A LITTLE PIECE?

Stev says SURE, GO AHEAD.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Xander says IT'S REALLY GOOD.

Back to the pasta making machine, Stev says SWITCH IT OVER TO THE
SIGN THAT SAYS EXTRUDE,
AND NOW PRESS THE START.
OKAY, SO PRESSURE HAS TO
BUILD UP AND THEN IT'LL START
EXTRUDING THE PASTA.

Xander says COOL.

Stev says SEE HOW IT'S
COMING DOWN THERE?
SO, WHAT WE'RE GONNA DO IS TAKE
IT DOWN TO ABOUT THAT LONG,
AND THEN WE'RE JUST GONNA
MAKE NEAT LITTLE PILES OF IT.
NOW YOU CAN
TEAR IT OFF.

Xander says I MADE TAGLIATELLE!

Stev says YEAH.

Xander says WHY IS THERE DIFFERENT
SHAPES FOR PASTA?

Stev says YOU KNOW, THAT HAS A LOT TO DO
WITH THE SAUCE THAT GOES ON IT.
IN ITALY THEY SAY THAT THE PASTA
WILL TASTE DIFFERENT BASED ON
THE SHAPE, SO THEY'RE VERY,
VERY PARTICULAR ABOUT
HOW IT'S SERVED.

Xander says WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE
SHAPE OF PASTA?

Steve says OH, THAT'S A HARD ONE, DEPENDS
ON WHAT SAUCE YOU'RE PUTTING
ON IT, BUT I REALLY
DO LIKE THIS PASTA.
IT FEELS KIND OF LIKE
SUMMERY SPRING-LIKE TO ME.

Xander says HAVE YOU BEEN TO
ITALY BEFORE?

Stev says YES, I'VE BEEN
SEVERAL TIMES.
I EVEN TAKE SOME OF THE STAFF
EVERY YEAR, AND WE GO ON A TRIP,
THAT'S PART OF
THEIR EDUCATION.
WORKING IN AN
ITALIAN RESTAURANT,
I LIKE TO SHOW THE ITALIAN FOOD
AND CULTURE BECAUSE FOOD IS
REALLY THE WAY YOU LEARN A LOT
ABOUT THE CULTURE OF A COUNTRY.

Xander says YEAH.

(music plays)

At Geneva, Aynalem says TIME
TO MAKE SOME CREPES.
I BROUGHT YOU
STINKY FLOWERS.

Genevieve says OH, FLOWERS.

Aynalem says JUST KIDDING,
IT'S GARLIC.

Genevieve says OH PERFECT.
DO YOU WANT TO MAKE
CREPES WITH THAT?

Aynalem says OKAY, CREPES
AND GARLIC?

Genevieve says YEAH.

Aynalem says THAT SOUNDS WEIRD.

Genevieve says IT'S GOOD.
I MEAN I'VE HAD
CREPES BEFORE,
BUT I HAVE NEVER
HAD IT WITH GARLIC.

Genevieve says ONLY SWEET?

Aynalem says YEAH.

Genevieve says YOU'LL LIKE THE SAVOURY
ONE JUST AS MUCH.

Aynalem says OKAY.

They peel garlic.

Genevieve says THERE YOU GO.
I LOVE GARLIC.

Aynalem says MM-HMM, I DO, TOO.
I LOVE THE
SMELL OF IT.

Genevieve says MM-HMM.

Aynalem says THIS GARLIC IS
SUPER DUPER FRESH.
SMELLS GREAT.
DO YOU ALWAYS GET FRESH
GARLIC FROM JOANIE'S FARM?

Genevieve says AS MUCH AS I CAN, BUT
SOMETIME IT'S NOT AVAILABLE
BECAUSE OF OUR WEATHER
HERE IN CANADA.

Aynalem says WINTER!

Genevieve says YOU LIKE WINTER?

Aynalem says YEAH, I LOVE WINTER.

Genevieve says OH, THAT'S GOOD.

Aynalem says EXCEPT THE PART
WHERE IT'S COLD.

Genevieve says DO YOU KNOW WHAT GARLIC
IS FAMOUS FOR IN MOVIES?

Aynalem says NO.

Geneveive says KEEP DRACULA AWAY!

An animated Dracula says AH, GARLIC!

Aynalem says KEEP DRACULA AWAY?

Genevieve says UH-HUH.
SO, WE USE OLIVE OIL
TO ROAST THE GARLIC,
AND THEN WE'RE GONNA ADD
A LITTLE BIT OF WATER,
COVER IT AND LET IT SIMMER
FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES.
WE'RE GONNA MASH IT AND THEN
WE'RE GONNA USE ALL THE CREAM.
SO, NOW WE'RE
GONNA MAKE BATTER.

Aynalem says FLOUR, MILK AND EGG.

Genevieve says WE DON'T PUT SUGAR OR SALT
IN OUR CREPE BATTER
AND DO YOU KNOW WHY?

Aynalem says NOPE.

Genevieve says BECAUSE WE USE THE SAME
BATTER TO MAKE A SWEET CREPE
OR A SAVOURY CREPE.
ONE FULL LADLE AND POUR IT
QUICK, QUICK IN THE MIDDLE,
RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE.
GO, GO, GO, GO,
GO, GO, GO!

Aynalem pours a ladleful of batter on the griddle.

Genevieve says AND WE'RE GONNA RAKE THE LIQUID
BATTER ALL OVER THE GRIDDLE.

Aynalem says THE RAKING PART IS
MY FAVOURITE PART.

Genevieve says GO, GO, GO, JUST PULL
THE LIQUID AND IN CIRCLE.

Aynalem says I DON'T THINK YOURS IS
GONNA BE THAT GREAT, WOW.

Genevieve says ARE YOU READY
TO FLIP?

Aynalem says YEAH, I AM.

Using a metal spatula, Aynalem picks up the crepe.

Genevieve says ALL RIGHT, SO DOWN THE MIDDLE,
UP, STRAIGHT UP, PERFECT, GO,
GO, GO, UNFOLD, WOW, YOU'RE
GOOD, YOU'RE A NATURAL.

Aynalem says I'M REALLY GOOD AT
THE FLIPPER THING.

An animated clip rolls.

An announcer says LET'S FIND OUT ABOUT GARLIC!
GARLIC TASTES SO GOOD
IN SO MANY THINGS.
BUT DON'T BE IN A RUSH
TO START BAKING WITH IT.
LETTING IT BREATHE ONCE IT'S
INSIDE GET STRONGER, WHICH
WILL HELP YOUR BODY
GET STRONGER, TOO.
GARLIC HAS A LOT OF
THE MINERAL MANGANESE,
WHICH ALLOWS THE BODY TO
COORDINATE MUSCLE MOVEMENT,
LIKE WALKING, RUNNING,
LIKE, REALLY, REALLY FAST,
AND OTHER COOL
STUFF, TOO, HA-HA!

An animated dog uses a stilt to jump on a convey belt.

The announcer says GARLIC ALSO PROVIDES GREAT
DEFENCE AGAINST BACTERIA AND
VIRUSES THAT CAN MAKE YOU SICK.
OU, MAYBE IT'S THE SMELL
THAT KEEPS THEM AWAY.
GARLIC IS A SUPER FOOD!

(music plays)

At Stev’s restaurant, Xander says LOOK AT THAT SAUCE!
SAUCY!

Stev says THIS MACHINE HERE,
IT'S A PASTA COOKER.
IT LOOKS LIKE A DEEP FRYER,
BUT IT'S GOT WATER IN IT,
SALT AND WATER, 'CAUSE YOU PUT
YOUR PASTA INTO THE BASKET.

Xander says HOW LONG DOES IT

Stev says TAKE TO COOK?
IT TAKES APPROXIMATELY
2 MINUTES.
WE'RE GONNA ADD THIS
CHEESE TO THE PAN.
I'M GONNA SEPARATE THEM,
SO THEY DON'T GET MELTY
AND STICK ALL TOGETHER.
LET'S SEE IF
IT'S DONE.
TAKE A LITTLE
BIT OFF.
HERE, YOU TRY ONE
AND I'LL TRY ONE.

Xander says MMM.

Stev says YOU WANT IT TO BE AL DENTE, BUT
NOT AS AL DENTE AS DRY PASTA.

Xander says WHAT DOES AL
DENTE MEAN?

Stev says AL DENTE MEANS
TO THE TEETH,
OR WITH A SLIGHT BITE
TO IT, NOT MUSHY.
ITALIAN PASTA'S MEANT TO HAVE A
LITTLE BIT OF CHEWINESS TO IT.

Xander says EVERYTHING'S READY, IT'S TIME
TO PLATE THIS UP AND EAT IT.
I LIKE HOW THE CHEESE IS ALL
MELTED IN HERE WITH THE SAUCE.
I CAN'T WAIT
TO EAT THIS.

(music plays)

At Geneva, Genevieve starts filling in the crepe.

Genevieve says WE'RE GONNA START
WITH THE PESTO.
WE'RE GONNA USE
OUR MASHED GARLIC.
WE WANT THE EXTRA GARLIC
FLAVOUR, FOR SURE.
WHAT ELSE YOU
WANT IN THERE?

Aynalem says I'D LIKE SOME
CHICKEN, YEAH.

Genevieve says CHICKEN.

Aynalem says THERE'S SO MANY CHOICES
OF THINGS TO ADD.
CHEESE.

Genevieve says I HAVE A SMOKED
CHEDDAR.
SPINACH?

Aynalem says I'LL HAVE SOME SPINACH,
I'LL HAVE ROASTED PEPPERS.

Genevieve says OKAY.

Aynalem says IT LOOKS GREAT.

Genevieve says SHRIMPS?

Aynalem says YEAH.

Genevieve says SOME ONIONS?

Aynalem says YEAH, I THINK THAT'S
GOOD ENOUGH.

Genevieve says SO, NOW WE'RE
GONNA FOLD IT.

Aynalem says I HAVE TO MAKE
GENEVIEVE'S, THE PRESSURE IS ON.

Genevieve says FOR MY CREPE, I'M GONNA HAVE
SOME OF THAT FRESH GARLIC,
SAUTÉED MUSHROOMS,
SOME BABY SPINACH,
SOME SWISS CHEESE,
PERFECT.
SEE, YOUR CREPE
LOOKS PERFECT.
HOLLANDAISE SAUCE JUST TO MAKE
IT EVEN MORE CREAMY. (LAUGHS)
I THINK WE SHOULD GO
SIT DOWN AND EAT.

Aynalem says YES, I DO, TOO.

Different kids appear inside an animated plate.

A boy with brown hair says THE ONE THING I GET TO MAKE
AT HOME IS GARLIC BREAD.
I TOAST THE BREAD, ADD SOME OIL
OR BUTTER, PUT GARLIC POWDER,
SEASONING SALT, STEAK SPICE
AND IT'S JUST SO GOOD.

A little girl with black hair says POTATOES, I LIKE, EW, TOMATOES.

A girl with curly brown hair says I DON'T REALLY
LIKE TOMATOES.
I JUST DON'T, LIKE,
IT'S ALL SLOPPY INSIDE.

A blond boy with glasses says TOMATOES ARE GOOD FOR YOU.
THEY'RE SQUISHY AND YUMMY.

A girl with curly light brown hair says TOMATOES ARE A VEGETABLE.

A girl with short curly light brown hair says TOMATOES ARE A FRUIT.

Aynalem says WE'RE IN KINGSTON,
ONTARIO, LOOKING FOR HOME
COOKING FROM SOME
OF THE LOCAL CHEFS.
XANDER IS ABOUT TO DIG INTO
SOME ITALIAN FOOD HE MADE.

Xander says THIS LOOKS AMAZING!
(LAUGHING)
OH MAN, GETTING THIS
TAGLIATELLE ON MY FORK
IS REALLY HARD.
SO, DO YOU HAVE, LIKE,
A TECHNIQUE TO GET THIS
ON YOUR FORK?

Stev says YOU JUST STAB RIGHT THROUGH
THE PASTA TO THE PLATE,
AND THEN YOU SPIN
YOUR FORK LIKE THAT.

Xander says OH.

Stev says SEE?

Xander says MAN, THAT PASTA
IS REALLY GOOD.
THE FRESH TOMATOES
MAKE SUCH A DIFFERENCE.
I DEFINITELY
TASTE THE BASIL.
I THINK I TASTE A
LITTLE BIT OF GARLIC.
SO MUCH FLAVOUR
IN EVERY BITE.
I LIKE THE TOMATO FLAVOUR
THAT THE CHERRY TOMATOES
GAVE INTO IT, IT'S
REALLY GOOD.
IT'S LIKE TRAVELLING TO
ITALY WITH YOUR MOUTH.

Stev says YOU NOTICE HOW, LIKE,
THE FRESH INGREDIENTS
REALLY MAKE
A DIFFERENCE?

Xander says MM-HMM.

Stev says LIKE, THE CHERRY TOMATOES
REALLY TASTE TOMATOEY, AND HEY,
WE JUST MADE THAT
PASTA MINUTES AGO.
IN ITALY THEY'VE BEEN
DOING THIS FOR CENTURIES.

Xander says IF THIS IS HOW ITALIAN
FOOD TASTES, I LOVE ITALY!
MAMMA MIA, THIS IS
REALLY GOOD, MM-WA.

(music plays)

At Geneva, Genevieve says SO, THIS IS YOUR
FIRST SAVOURY CREPE,
YOU'RE GONNA EAT
IT JUST LIKE THAT?

Aynalem holds the crepe and says YEAH, OR SHOULD I USE
A FORK AND A KNIFE?

Genevieve says YOU CAN DO WHATEVER
YOU WANT.

Aynalem says I LIKE USING MY HAND.

Genevieve says YOU GO FOR IT.

(music plays)

Aynalem says MMM.
THIS IS VERY GOOD.
I REALLY LIKE SWEET CREPES, BUT
SAVOURY MIGHT BE MY FAVOURITE.
THIS IS GOOD, MMM,
THIS IS GOOD.

Genevieve says JUST AS GOOD IF NOT BETTER
THAN THE SWEET ONES, RIGHT?

Aynalem says MM-HMM.
THIS CREPE, IT MAKES ME
FEEL LIKE I'M IN PARIS.
MMM.
SO, WHY DID YOU MAKE
A CREPE RESTAURANT?

Genevieve says FOR ONE THING, THERE WAS NO
CREPE RESTAURANT IN KINGSTON,
AND BECAUSE THEY'RE
SO VERSATILE,
I CAN EAT CREPES EVERYDAY
BECAUSE THE FILLINGS CAN CHANGE.
WE CAN TREAT IT LIKE A
SANDWICH, LIKE A PIZZA,
IT'S YOU CHOOSE YOUR
TOPPINGS AND THERE'S NO END,
AND THEY CAN BE
VERY, VERY HEALTHY.

Aynalem says THESE TWO ARE REALLY HEALTHY IF
YOU THINK OF WHAT'S INSIDE THEM.

Genevieve says A CREPE A DAY KEEP THE
DOCTORS AWAY. (LAUGHS)

At Stev’s restaurant, Xander says THANK YOU SO MUCH,
I HAD SO MUCH FUN.
THIS IS THE FIRST TIME
I'VE EVER MADE FRESH PASTA.

Stev says WELL, I'M GLAD YOU GOT TO SEE
HOW WE DO IT HERE AT OLIVEA.
THANKS FOR COMING.

Xander says NO PROBLEM.

(music plays)

Aynalem says CREPES, IT'S NOT ONLY
A DESSERT, IT'S A MEAL.
THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Genevieve says YOU'RE SO WELCOME.
NEXT TIME, COME
FOR A DESSERT.

Aynalem says YEAH.

Genevieve says ALL RIGHT.

Aynalem says THAT'S GONNA
TASTE GOOD, TOO.

Clips show images of Kinston.

Aynalem says KINGSTON IS FULL
OF ALL SORTS OF FLAVOURS
THAT REMIND
PEOPLE OF HOME.
TIME TO MEET UP WITH
XANDER AND SEE WHAT KIND
OF ADVENTURE HE WENT ON.

Xander says HEY AYNALEM.

Aynalem says HI XANDER.

Xander says WHAT DID YOU
DO TODAY?

Aynalem says I WENT TO A
GARLIC FARM.

Xander says HOW WAS THAT?

Aynalem says IT SMELLED LIKE GARLIC.

Xander says I WENT TO A
TOMATO FARM.

Aynalem says WOW, HOW WAS THAT?

Xander says REALLY HOT.

Aynalem says NO, I THINK MINE
WAS HOTTER.

Xander says I'M PRETTY SURE
MINE WAS HOTTER.

Aynalem says NO, MINE WAS STEAMING,
I WAS SWEATING.

Xander says OKAY, I'M PRETTY SURE
MINE WAS HOTTER THOUGH.

Aynalem says NO, IT WASN'T.

Xander says OKAY.

Aynalem says I KNOW.

(music plays)

As the gag reel rolls, end credits roll.

As Xander eats a tomato, it explodes in his mouth.

A voice says WHAT WAS THAT?

He starts laughing.
