On his home turf of Brooklyn, New York, Ben shows off his favorite local spots and activities including surfing and a tour of the Acme Smoked Fish Corporation. There's also coverage of his Fishing Derby. Ben goes fishing for carp across the border in Queens before returning to his Polish Brooklyn neighborhood where it's cooked up in a traditional Polish holiday dish. Ben then heads out east to help Fisherman Rob Williams haul in 40 pound scallop traps. Ben witnesses the scallop's journey from one end of Long Island to the other as Williams harvests the species in the Great Peconic Bay and then sells the catch at a Brooklyn market to Chef Jaques Gautier of Palo Santo, who prepares the scallops in his Park Slope neighborhood eatery.
