In the Season 3 premiere, chef Edward Lee returns to East Brooklyn, where he grew up surrounded by a mix of cultures and cuisines. He also meets with other chefs who have followed culinary paths not in line with their roots. Later, he's joined by chef Ivan Orkin for a visit to one of the city's oldest "appetizing" stores; and the two share their spins on American cuisine (Japanese-Jewish and Korean-Southern). Lee's mother also offers a lesson on making Korean comfort food.
