Connecticut is getting some local love and national attention with an upcoming episode of Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking. This PBS show, hosted by Pete Evans, features chefs who are the best of the best.  Pete Evans is not only one of Australia’s most popular chefs, he’s also a cookbook author, a host of many popular Australian shows, a surfer, a fisherman, and a successful restaurateur.  The first episode of Moveable Feast (there will be 13 total) will be on 9/7 with Thomas Douglas and Thierry Rautureau, the second will air on 9/15 and features Jeffrey Saad and Cortney Burns, and the third episode will feature three chefs whom you just might know.
