100 Days, Drinks, Dishes & Destinations is your passport to delicious
A new 13-part culinary adventure series for American Public Television, 100 Days, Drinks, Dishes & Destinations with libations expert, Leslie Sbrocco, debuts nationwide on October 26, 2019. As Sbrocco says, “I hope the show is a viewer’s virtual passport to delicious.”
An Emmy & James Beard Award-winning wine author and food television host, Sbrocco’s job is to eat and drink the world…and she does it with passion. On the series, Leslie’s ever-expanding bucket list not only encourages viewers to spend 100 days visiting remarkable places, but also to indulge in hundreds of palate-pleasing experiences.
Her fun-loving journeys around the globe kick off this Fall with six episodes, then another seven shows will begin airing in Spring of 2020. Each half-hour episode focuses on unique combinations of drinks, dishes and destinations that are woven together in a fabric of shared histories, cultural touchpoints, and fascinating people.
In the inaugural season, Leslie ventures to Europe and pairs Austrian sparkling wine, Sekt, with sausage at wurst stands in Vienna. She journeys to Linz, Austria, to sip schnapps and make Linzertorte. In Hungary, Leslie visits Tokaj’s centuries-old caves where sweet wine was made for Hungarian royals. Back in Budapest, she savors the flavors of goulash, hits hip ruin bars, and tastes legendary elixirs. In Normandy, France, Leslie imbibes liquid apple specialties —cider and Calvados —and crafts classic Camembert cheese.
Episodes in the United States include learning tea-steeping etiquette in San Francisco’s Chinatown with an 89-year-old master. Soaking in volcanic mud baths in California’s quaint town of Calistoga where Leslie not only dips in a toe, but dives in whole-heartedly. She strolls the streets of Nevada’s Virginia City to drink in its eclectic history. And, don’t forget Honky Tonk, whiskey and hot chicken in Nashville, Tennessee, and Beauty, Biltmore, and Beer in Asheville, North Carolina.
From classic eats to unexpected drinks, iconic attractions to undiscovered treasures, viewers are taken on a virtual vacation in every mouth-watering show as Leslie shares her knowledge and humorous take on traveling the world with glass and fork in hand.
