The Dairy Show is a video blog about where food comes from and how to cook with it. While the program focuses mostly on Dairy, it is currently expanding to include all areas of responsible agriculture. The site focuses on the people, who through traditional methods and modern technology raise food in a manner consistent with good environmental practices, good health, and a concern for animal welfare, as well as the people who cook with that food.
The mission of The Dairy Show is to:
- To promote responsibly made products and the artisans who make them in a responsible and sustainable way.
- To educate the public about where their food comes from and how it is produced.
- To introduce simple food science.
- To highlight recipes and techniques, to maximize the enjoyment of responsibly made products.
- To discuss the public health implications of food production and diet.
- And to entertain.
About Michael Crupain
Michael Crupain is the producer and host of The Dairy Show. Michael grew up in the New York area and attained his undergraduate degree at Duke University. Following college, he attended New York Medical College, where he graduated in the top of his class. He completed two years of a Neurosurgical residency before joining a biomedical entrepreneurial venture, for which he is still a consultant. For as long as he can remember, Michael has been interested in food and television, but never thought much about farming. This all changed when he started to learn about the intricate relationship between agriculture, food policy and public health. Drawing on his experience in television production from high school, college, and an internship at NBC news, as well as his food and science knowledge, Michael created The Dairy Show to help people learn about where food comes from and how to cook with it. While the show initially focused on Dairy, Michael would like to expand the program to include other areas of sustainable agriculture and the relationship between agriculture and public health. Currently Michael is enrolled in the Preventive Medicine Residency Program at Johns Hopkins School of Public Health where he plans to focus his studies on food, health, and agriculture policy.
