An acclaimed cookbook author and larger-than-life personality, G. Garvin takes viewers on a culinary expedition through 13 episodes exploring some of the best Southern-inspired cuisine the country has to offer. Whether New York or Michigan, Hawaii or Connecticut, G. discovers the hidden gems behind some of the cities' best eats.

"All of this makes him the perfect guide to take viewers across the country finding some of the tastiest dishes around, along with getting to know the people behind them."
In the premiere episode G. heads to Connecticut and starts his road trip at The Corner, a breakfast spot in Milford, Conn., that has all the locals buzzing. The restaurant serves up Southern flavors, like the spiced duck tortilla and French toast stuffed with peaches and cream. The next stop is Mama's Boy Southern Table & Refuge in Norwalk, where they put their own fresh spin on traditional Southern classics, including espresso-rubbed short-ribs. The final stop on his tour is Sandra's Next Generation in New Haven, where they are cooking up authentic Deep South staples right on the east coast! Throughout the season G. travels wherever the food and road takes him, including a food truck that prepares a New Orleans style jambalaya in Oahu, Hawaii, and a stop in New York City to find some of the best Southern-inspired food the Empire State has to offer.
G. Garvin has mastered offering a one-size-fits-all approach to cooking sophisticated and simple meals, proving that even the most basic cooking palate can create the most flavorful of dishes.
