PBS No Passport Required: Detroit

Premiering Tuesday, July 10 at 9-10:00 p.m. ET – “Detroit”

Marcus heads to Detroit — home to one of the largest and most diverse Middle Eastern communities in America — to explore its culture, history and food. With a family of Syrian refugees in Dearborn, he shares a home-cooked meal and talks about their proud heritage and overcoming misconceptions. Over Yemeni tea, he discusses the importance of finding community. And Marcus cooks with Lebanese-American pastry chef Lena Sareini, eats falafel and learns how to make the Iraqi bread samoon, all before ending the trip at an amazing 700-person wedding.
