The Illegal Eater

A Manitoba-produced TV series has won an award at the Banff World Media Festival.

“The Illegal Eater” is a behind-the-scenes look at underground restaurants across North America and is hosted by singer/songwriter and food adventurer Steven Page.

The film, produced by Farpoint Films and Middle Child Films, was honoured with a Rockie Award in the Best Lifestyle Series category. The winning episode featured Page visiting the super secretive Legume Supper Club (now Pao & Cha Cha) in New York and then attending a clandestine dining experience at Sous Rising (now 42 Grams) in Chicago.

The first season of the series premiered in the U.S. on the Esquire Network this spring and in Canada this past fall on Travel+Escape.
