Padma Lakshmi has had a busy 12 months.

She spent the early stages of lockdown alphabetizing her spices—and then reorganizing them by region—and cooking an incredible amount of food at home. Then her new show, Taste the Nation, which dives into the immigrant roots of America’s favorite cuisines, premiered in June, and she spent the fall filming a new season of Top Chef in Portland, under a number of new COVID-19 restrictions.

This week, she’s talking about all of that and more with us, from the transportive meals she’s cooked while grounded to the places she’s itching to visit when this is all over.

Most importantly, we chat about the strength and influence of immigrants in the U.S., how food media has changed in the last year, and what may be in store for Taste the Nation’s second season.
