The Migrant Kitchen premieres November 8th at 8 PM. Have you seen this show before? I love watching food shows and learning more about what types of foods people eat in different areas of the kitchen. I’ve never seen the show Migrant Kitchen before. But, I was sent a screener so I could watch it and share my thoughts with you.

I had the opportunity to watch The Migrant Kitchen Season 2 Episode 1 which takes place in Alta, California. Here’s a bit about the episode that will air tonight:
A collective of culturally connected, distinguished chefs (including Ray Garcia of Broken Spanish, Wes Avila of Guerilla Tacos, Carlos Salgado of Taco Maria, as well as Jorge Gaviria of corn purveyor, Masienda) work to preserve the heritage and push forward the “Alta California” Mexican food movement. By celebrating those dishes and ingredients integral to Mexico’s cuisine and its economy, a group of accomplished Mexican-American chefs are working to elevate not only the food but what people of their heritage can achieve in the food business.
This was really a fascinating look into the Mexican food movement. The dishes and ingredients are much different than what we have here in Vermont – even in the specialty section of our grocery stores. I really enjoyed learning more about how important it is to stay connected to our heritage through food. While this type of cuisine isn’t available where I live, I’m motivated to try a few new dishes and to explore more traditionally Vermont and New England recipes as well.
