New York is home to glamorous restaurants and chefs, but behind this scene is a world of food that is more culture than concept.
1 Minute Meal is a documentary portrait of that world. The series uses food to reveal the communities, legacies, dreams, realities, and unseen forces that shape life in New York City. The purpose of this work is to create an inclusive, dignified, and enduring media portrayal of American identity.
Emily Weeks (season 3 assistant editor) is a barista turned editor based in New York. Check out more of her work at emilyaweeks.com.
Jason Kelley (season 2 composer) is a songwriter and composer living in Austin, TX. See his work and contact him at recordstable.com.
