This six-episode series hosted by chef Marcus Samuelsson offers viewers a culinary and anthropological exploration of the people, rituals and food of multicultural America. Each week, Marcus visits a new city to learn about how that city made its mark. Featuring musicians, poets, chefs, business owners, artists, community leaders and home cooks, the program spotlights people who have enhanced the nation's culture and cuisine. Some segments include the sights and sounds of Detroit's Arab-American community, how Vietnamese cuisine and culture have influenced New Orleans, and the flavors and heritage of the Haitian community in Miami.
