series description

The mission of the cooking series FOOD OVER 50 is to inform, instruct and entertain America's late Gen-X, Boomer and senior audiences with artistic and appetizing preparations of wide-ranging international recipes that are nutritionally enticing. Hosted by David Jackson, FOOD OVER 50 is primarily taped in the scenic Mojave Desert, with cooking segments taking place in the kitchen, and select seafood recipes shot at Jackson's quaint seaside cottage in The Outer Hebrides in Scotland. The series also provides viewers with their own personal nutritionist. During each episode, registered dietician Elizabeth Kelsey joins David to critique recipes from a health perspective and emphasize the importance of cooking fresh food.
