‘Taste Buds: Chefsgiving’ Kicks Off the Holidays With Food and Stories to Share on Sunday, Nov. 25, on ABC

Trailer available here:

“Taste Buds: Chefsgiving”
In the newest culinary offering from Intersport, the holidays take on new
meaning for a group of multicultural chefs who get away from their hectic
lives running restaurants, making appearances and growing their businesses.
They gather together to cook, chat and chill as a small, close group for
one meal in “Taste Buds: Chefsgiving,” SUNDAY, NOV. 25 (4:00-5:00 p.m. EST), on
The ABC Television Network.
Chefs Tu David Phu, Sheldon Simeon, Melissa King
and Kwame Onwuachi each bring their own unique,
soul-searching dish to the table that reminds them of the time they spent
with their own families during the holidays. It is through these dishes
that viewers are taken on a culinary journey from Africa to the Caribbean,
from Vietnam to Hawaii and Los Angeles.
This is Intersport’s second culinary special in 2018 on ABC. “Taste Buds:
Chefsgiving” follows up on the success of “JBFA: Stories from the 2018
James Beard Awards,” a look at the popular culinary awards show through the
lens of a documentarian.
About “Taste Buds”
“Taste Buds: Chefsgiving”
isn’t just about the food but the communal aspects of cooking, the stories
passed down and the new ones created, all captured through the eyes of
documentarians. Cameras follow each chef home to where their dish finds its
roots, relaying the stories inspired by these special recipes with loved
ones. When dinner is finally served, there’s nothing off the table: from
the conversation to the critiques of the food.
