Eight New Episodes Available for Streaming Today Highlight Deliciously Surprising Food Fusions Born from Cultural Collisions
NEW YORK, NY (November 7, 2019) – Culture Trip, the global start-up operating in travel, media and entertainment, today announced the return of its original digital series, “Hungerlust.” The new season, sponsored by the United Explorer Card, highlights eight locals around the world whose passion for food stems from cultural collision.
“Something magical happens when a chef mixes cultures in their cuisine,” said Mick Greenwood, Director of Visual Content at Culture Trip. “Whether it’s West meets East, future meets contemporary or migrant meets local, the melting pot creates something new and special. With food that transcends borders and cultures, the creative cooks we celebrate on this season of ‘Hungerlust’ are breaking down barriers with each dish they serve.”
The new season is available to stream starting today at https://theculturetrip.com/presents/hungerlust/.
