Tune in tonight for season 2 of The Migrant Kitchen, an Emmy Award-winning series that explores Los Angeles’ food scene through the eyes of a new generation of chefs whose cuisine is inspired by the immigrant experience. The beautiful series looks at the hands behind the food in one of the world’s most dynamic epicurean cities.

This season continues to spotlight chefs who combine traditional, ethnic cuisines with new flavors and techniques that have transformed the culinary landscape of the city. Season two examines tradition and innovation in cuisines celebrating the food cultures of Mexico, Vietnam, Japan and India, as well as their various interpretations found in Los Angeles. Episodes will feature interviews with key Los Angeles chefs and food influencers including Ray Garcia (Broken Spanish, BS Taqueria), Bryant Ng (Cassia), Wes Avila (Guerilla Tacos) and the Mahendro family (Badmaash).

The James Beard Award and Webby-nominated series is produced in partnership by nonprofit network KCETLink Media Group and acclaimed culinary storytelling publication Life & Thyme.

The Migrant Kitchen‘s second season will premiere tonight, Nov. 8, at 8 p.m. PT on KCET in Southern California and at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Link TV nationwide. Catch up on season 1 here.
