Over the course of eight episodes, Eden visits a different city each week to discover original recipes and the incredible stories behind them. She meets the immigrants and locals who make up the backbone of every city and who reconnect with their culture and traditions through food. Whether she’s at a Kenyan restaurant for lunch in Baltimore or enjoying a traditional Burmese meal in Honolulu, Eden brings her passion for people and adventure everywhere she goes.
The episode Friday, August 24th will feature Tarpon Springs’ own Chefs Andreas Salivaras of Mykonos, and Demetrios Salivaras, of Dimitri’s on the Water, both located on the World Famous Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks. The spotlight on Andreas & Dimitri showcases their culinary expertise when it comes to authentic & nouveau Greek cuisine. Eden will also sample Brazilian and German flavors while in Tampa Bay.
“Eden is a passionate food adventurer who will transport viewers along with her, “ said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President Programming, Food Network and Cooking Channel. “The great secret she reveals is that you don’t need to leave your city to explore the wide range of cultures and cuisines the world has to offer.”
