Bravo's Top Chef Master Art Smith and artist/partner Jesus Salgueiro end up on the front lines in fighting obesity, food deserts, and the dying family meal tradition, when they respond to the 9/11 tragedy by spearheading Common Threads, an organization that teaches kids in the inner-city about the world and its cultures through cooking, and how we are more alike than different by exploring the traditions and cuisines from around the globe. Top restaurant and television chefs have answered the call to work side by side with low-income kids in Los Angeles, Miami, DC, and Chicago. In the end, individual lives and entire families are changed well beyond the lessons to paint their plates with the colors of the garden.
The best meal the world over is at your own dinner table, no matter where you live.
