Faces of America - Immigrant Stories of Famous Americans on PBS

As you know I am always talking about the immigrant story because for me its a very close connection. My father came to America in the 1950s and then my mother later in the 1960s. I am always so intrigued with the story on how my father decided to leave Italy and journey to a place where he knew no one and had nothing. This new show on PBS, called, "Faces of America" really takes an in depth look into the immigrant's story and but what makes it so unique is that they profile famous people, including Meryl Streep, Mario Batali and many others. If you have an opportunity to watch it, you must.. its on PBS.

Faces of America premieres nationally Wednesdays, February 10 - March 3, 2010 from 8-9 p.m. ET on PBS

Chef Mario Batali & Gwyneth Paltrow Team Up For "Spain-On the Road Again."

Italian-American chef, Mario Batali, celebrity actress-Gwyneth Paltrow, and two other cast members set off on a major road trip through Spain. On their journey they find the local foods, visit farms, wineries, and cook all sorts of Spanish ethnic local agriculture.

This show will be airing this Sunday on PBS. Check your local listings. I will say, I caught a glimpse of the show and its absolutely wonderful. If you like culture, food, travel and some celebrity..then this is the show for you. Mario Batali is just awesome, he's real and you can just tell he genuinely loves what he does. A true chef. Not to mention, its great to see Gwyneth Paltrow in a realistic light, she looks like she's having fun and I think she can cook. Anyhow, I enjoyed it, you might too. Here is the link to the "Spain-On the Road Again," show.
