#12 "Melting Pot"

Arguably, no Food Network show has done more to promote the food of different cultures than Melting Pot, which aired from 2001 to 2002. With a goal of “exploring the rich tapestry of ethnic cuisines,” it featured a rotating roster of hosts preparing the cuisine of their homeland while also sharing traditions and stories. And as for those hosts, you might have heard of a few of them: they included Michael Symon, Aaron Sanchez, Padma Lakshmi, Cat Cora, Rocco DiSpirito, and Alex Garcia.
