Get ready to explore some of metro Detroit’s most exciting restaurants. Cooking in America, Eater’s city hopping series hosted by chef Sheldon Simeon, is making its next stop in Detroit.

Now in entering its third season, the series explores how first and second generation immigrants in the United States impact the country’s culinary landscape through food while maintaining connections to their cultures. As metro Detroit has undergone significant economic and social transformations over the past century, the region’s international communities have continued to play an important role in the area’s landscape and identity.

This trailer offers a small taste of what’s on the plate Cooking in America: Detroit. Basil chicken, kafta skewers, Bengali pizza, Polish plates, Senegalese fish, Mexican and Italian food — it’s all flourishing here in the Motor City. Check out the sneak peek above and tune in for the first episode this Monday.
