Beautiful documentary of food, relationships and life

Latin America is the focus and you will hear and see stories of people, culture, challenges, victories and—food. Videos will have various issues come into each story and you should be aware that like most of life you may not agree with a worldview. The first episode features a lesbian relationship which will inspire some and concern others.

Is It Any Good?

Food and travel shows can often feel like tourism ads, so it's refreshing when one takes a different perspective. While Street Food: Latin America focuses on the featured dishes and dining spots, it's also dedicated to giving plenty of attention to the local culture and personal lives of the chefs. Rather than directing viewers to the popular spots from any guidebook, it's a food and travel show for people who prefer hanging out with the locals.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
