Food is more than just nourishing our bodies, it's one way we communicate and share with others about our culture and family history. And with a rich history of diversity in America, our recipes have become as diverse as we are.

Today, we invite your family recipes — those that have been passed down and keep the flavors and traditions of your heritage alive.

Beaumont, Texas native, James Beard nominated chef, restauranteur, and one of the judges of The Great American Recipe, Tiffany Derry is here to share her experience.

The Great American Recipe airs Friday nights at 8 pm central on PBS, with episodes available to watch on or on the PBS video app. The season finale airs Friday, August 12th.
