In "Spice Frontier," a chef scours the galaxy for lost earth spices

This fun animated short by Jalil Sadool and Adam Meyer was created as a pitch piece for a series. Follow Kent and C-LA as they search for food flavorings thought lost to time:

A century ago, Earth was destroyed, and humans now live among alien species spread throughout space. Kent is among them, and as a struggling chef, he just had his cookbook rejected from a publisher. But now he is on a quest: he wants to discover the culinary secrets of his ancestors. With the help of his cyborg sidekick, C-LA, and his ship The Serrano, Kent hunts down rare spices throughout the galaxy, trying to find them before they disappear from human knowledge entirely. But when Kent pays a visit to an abandoned space aquarium in search of sea salt, he discovers something much bigger — and more momentous — than he thought.
