(from Travel Channel's press release, January 2015) Can breaking bread actually make a difference when it comes to "Breaking Borders?" In Travel Channel's new original series, premiering Sunday, March 15 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, Peabody Award-winning journalist Mariana van Zeller and acclaimed chef Michael Voltaggio tackle that very question as they travel to conflict zones around the globe. Together, they have a unique and challenging goal: gather people from all sides of the conflict to a delicious meal and talk about the issues that divide them. A thoughtful and informative hour, "Breaking Borders" is a unique opportunity for those living in the region to share their challenges, concerns and possibilities of a future - through the eyes of the community members whose daily experiences continue to drive international headlines. The series is comprised of 13 one-hour episodes. In each episode, van Zeller and Voltaggio take viewers on a journey to meet residents affected by the unrest. They go into their homes and businesses, uncover their culinary cultures, likes and dislikes and learn how each respective cuisine helps define who they are. As van Zeller digs deeper into the issues, Voltaggio goes on a culinary adventure, collecting ideas and ingredients to create an unbelievable meal inspired by the people he has encountered along the way.
