Canadian forests and riverbanks stand in for supermarket shelves in a new TV show about the adventures of foraging and cooking with wild ingredients.

Stroud, who splits his time between Oregon and Ontario, is a survival expert who starred in the wilderness survival TV show Survivorman for a decade.
