Hosted by renowned chef Marcus Samuelsson, NO PASSPORT REQUIRED takes viewers on an inspiring journey across the U.S. to explore and celebrate the wide-ranging diversity of immigrant traditions and cuisine woven into American food and culture. In each episode, Marcus visits anew city to discover the dynamic and creative ways a particular community has made its mark.

From Detroit, where Marcus meets Middle Eastern immigrants who call the city home, to the Ethiopian community in Washington, D.C., NO PASSPORT REQUIRED showcases how food can bring Americans - old and new - together around the table. In New Orleans, Marcus learns how Vietnamese culinary traditions have fully integrated into the fabric of the city, taking center stage with long-established French and African influences. In New York, he's shown how the Indo-Guyanese culture thrives in a small enclave of Queens, and how this one community has taken the best of its Indian and Caribbean roots and incorporated those influences into its customs and cuisine. In Chicago, Marcus ventures into the city's Mexican neighborhoods and discovers their impact on the area's food and cultural landscape. Going beyond the borders of South Beach, he also meets with members of Miami's proud Haitian community.

Very entertaining!
Review by Mark L. on 09/01/21 review stating Very entertaining!
This is way more than a cooking show! Food and cooking for Marcus is just a broad, open window into the immigrant experience and a powerful way for others to connect to that experience. Marcus is such an engaging character that you cant wait to meet him again in the next episode. I highly recommend this show and who knows, you might even learn something about cooking, but really, thats not the point! Enjoy!
