Each episode master chef and proud foodie Scott Pampuch travels across the nation hunting for homegrown heroes of the artisanal food movement.

Mexican Fiesta: Renowned chef Peter Kuruvita embarks on a breathtaking journey of culinary discovery through the vibrant, mouth-watering world of Mexican cuisine. His mission is to uncover the heart of Mexico’s food culture and let the passion of its people inspire his own take on some of their most prized dishes.
David Rocco’s Dolci Napoli: Chef David Rocco travels to Naples, Italy: one of the world’s oldest cities and a treasure trove for foodies and travel junkies. Famous for its music, museums, and thriving arts, this Southern Italian city is also the birthplace of pizza and espresso, and it is the perfect place for David to embark on a culinary adventure.
