Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations (2005)

You can’t delve into the world of travel shows without mentioning the patron saint of culinary travel, Anthony Bourdain. Nobody is able to blend food, travel, and culture quite like Bourdain, which is immediately evident when you start watching No Reservations. Though this show has been off the air for a while, the episodes are as relevant today as they were when they first aired. Throughout the six seasons of this Travel Channel series, you can watch Bourdain bring his typical appetite, empathy, and wit to every new global destination. If you haven’t seen this series before, now is a great time to binge all the episodes (or rewatch your favorites if you’ve already seen them).

Taste the Nation with Padma Lakshmi (2020)

Everyone with even a passing interest in food culture knows Padma Lakshmi, cookbook author and co-host of Top Chef.

Lakshmi travels the country throughout the ten-episode series, revealing the roots and connections between our food, history, and shared humanity. Educational value aside, the show also features some of the most beautiful dishes you’ve ever seen. This, coupled with Lakshmi’s signature charm, should send Taste the Nation straight to the top of your watchlist.
