According to CNN, Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi has a new 10-episode series called "Taste the Nation." It is streaming on Hulu. In her series, she tries to tackle the questions: "What exactly is American food?" and "..What makes us American?" Lakshmi came to live in the United States from India when she was 4-years-old. She says that there's one simple ingredient that makes American food great, and it is immigration. Lakshmi says, ""The show was designed for people who don't think like me, who don't think that immigration is a good thing..." In the show, she travels across the nation, sampling different cuisines and talking to the people who make them, from burritos to dosas to kebabs. She says that she hopes that Taste the Nation gives viewers a clearer idea of what immigration feels like. She adds, "And looks like in a human way, on the ground, in people's daily lives."
