Produced by Kew Media Group, the show follows Lynn as she travels across Canada, sourcing fresh, local ingredients for her dishes. Each episode focuses on a specific region, highlighting the unique culinary offerings and traditions that exist in that area.

The show's format is relatively straightforward: Lynn arrives in a new location and sets out to meet local farmers, fishmongers, and other purveyors of fine ingredients. She then uses these ingredients to prepare a series of dishes, which she serves to a group of local residents or visitors. Along the way, she provides tips and insights into her cooking techniques, as well as information about the various ingredients she's working with.

One of the things that sets Pitchin' In apart from other cooking shows is its emphasis on sustainability and community. Lynn is passionate about supporting local farmers and producers, and she frequently visits farms, markets, and other locations where she can source the freshest ingredients. She also makes a point of highlighting the people and communities that make each region so unique, often incorporating their stories and traditions into her cooking.

Another standout feature of the show is Lynn's infectious personality. She's warm, engaging, and genuinely enthusiastic about the food she's sourcing and preparing. Whether she's chatting with a farmer about the challenges of growing a particular crop or sharing a laugh with a group of locals over a meal, Lynn's charisma and charm make her a joy to watch.

The production value of Pitchin' In is also top-notch. The show is beautifully shot, with stunning aerial footage of the Canadian landscape and intimate close-ups of Lynn's cooking process. The editing is sharp and dynamic, moving seamlessly between shots of Lynn in the kitchen, interacting with locals, and exploring the natural beauty of each region. The result is a visually stunning showcase of Canada's diverse culinary landscape.

In terms of the dishes themselves, Pitchin' In offers a wide variety of recipes that draw on local ingredients and traditions. From wild salmon and halibut in British Columbia to lobster and oysters in Nova Scotia, each episode features a range of dishes that highlight the unique flavors of the region. Lynn's cooking style is approachable and down-to-earth, with a focus on fresh, simple ingredients and classic techniques.

Overall, Pitchin' In is an excellent cooking show that offers a fresh perspective on Canadian cuisine. Lynn Crawford's infectious enthusiasm and commitment to sustainability make her a standout host, while the show's emphasis on local ingredients and community engagement adds depth and richness to each episode.
