Detroit’s World Kitchen

Detroit’s World Kitchen

Detroit’s World Kitchen will be an internet based TV cooking show hosted by Detroit youth. The show will broadcast to a global audience and present the preparation of various ethnic foods from the Detroit area. Filmed in a kitchen on a Detroit studio set, two to three youth hosts will be joined by a new guest each episode who will cook food from their country of origin such as Jamaica, Poland, Mexico, China, The Middle East, Thailand, etc. The show will begin with an introduction of the guest cook where the audience and hosts will learn of his or her ethnic origin and life in the Detroit area. After the introductions the hosts will play a short prerecorded video segment featuring the guest cook gathering food ingredients at a local farmers’ market, an ethnic food store, or a community garden and explaining the origin of the foods and the importance of the various ingredients to health, taste and aroma of the meal that will be prepared on the show. The show will close with the guest cook and hosts sitting down to share the meal while listening to live music performed on the set by a local ethnic musician.  The hosts and viewers will learn how to experience other cultures while discovering ethnic foods, their cooking methods and flavoring ingredients, and local food sources. According to the United States Bureau of the Census, the Detroit area is one of the most ethnically diverse in the United States.  Detroit’s World Kitchen will expose the rich diversity of the region through food and music and the sharing of cultural values and the ethnic backgrounds of its people.
