Along the way, Carla traces the history and lineage of dishes, discovering the interconnected, international origins and cultures that paved the way for today’s American cuisine – because if you don’t know the history, then you don’t know the dish. Join Carla as she chases flavor across the globe to find out how it all comes together on the American plate.”
“Chasing Flavor brings together so many of the things I am passionate about. It’s about food, and family, and sharing stories and history and travel. And more importantly, giving credit to the cultures that had a hand in a particular dish,” said Hall. “I’m really proud of this show. Everyone involved in making it, myself included, put their heart and souls into it. It was a wonderful adventure, and I can’t wait for others to share it.”
Episodes enticingly include “Ice Cream,” “Al Pastor,” “Chicken Pot Pie,” Barbecue,” “Hot Chicken” and “Shrimp & Grits.” Los Angeles is onstage with “Barbecue” featuring Pitmaster Lonnie Edwards of Rib Town BBQ.
