Today Hulu adds to its slate of original food originals with unscripted series Taste The Nation with Padma Lakshmi, which will debut all ten episodes on Friday, June 19, 2020. The series, which is executive produced by Lakshmi along with Part2 Pictures' David Shadrack Smith and Sarina Roma, will be a featured title in Hulu's upcoming food-focused content experience, Hulu Kitchen.
In this new streaming series, award-winning cookbook author, host and Executive Producer Padma Lakshmi takes audiences on a journey across America, exploring the rich and diverse food culture of various immigrant groups, seeking out the people who have so heavily shaped what American food is today.
From indigenous communities to recent immigrant arrivals, Padma breaks bread with Americans across the nation to uncover the roots and relationship between our food, our humanity, and our history - ultimately revealing stories that challenge notions of identity, belonging, and what it means to be American.
Taste the Nation joins Hulu's growing slate of food originals, which includes upcoming series from David Chang and Chrissy Teigen produced by Vox Studios, among others. As part of Hulu Kitchen, these originals will live alongside hundreds of hours of popular food series like Chopped, Top Chef and MasterChef - accessible on-demand, any time, on across hundreds of devices.
