Heartfelt, fascinating, historically accurate, and beautifully filmed, this series is a loving tribute to the American dream. Padma Lakshmi is an excellent interviewer, teasing out the best of her subjects in Taste the Nation: Holiday Edition. Not only is the food delectable and crave-worthy, but the stories have true emotional punch. Expect to shed a few tears and to laugh along with the jokes.

Teens curious about the world around them will enjoy this expansive show. Parents who are foodies, or who enjoy the multicultural stories that are threaded through U.S. society, will want more. It's a feast for the senses, and food for the soul. A great way to find inspiration during holiday season.
