Christopher Kimball's Milk Street Television
It's hard to believe we're already on season 6 of Christopher Kimball's Milk Street Television, but we're delighted to have more! Tacos from Los Angeles and Mexico City, Greek appetizers, Brazilian pizza, and more are on the docket this season.
How She Rolls
How She Rolls is different from the other shows on this list: it's newer, only entering its second season; and it's not a cooking show. Instead it follows Carrie Morey as she grows her Charleston, South Carolina biscuit business while also raising a family and reconnecting with her mother.
Pati's Mexican Table
Pati Jinich travels to the northeastern Mexican border state of Nuevo León in this eleventh season of Pati's Mexican Table, discovering some surprising Sephardic Jewish culinary roots in the region. It's a return to the border for Jinich, who produced a special tracing the Mexican-American border last year.
