Transformative Chefs tells the stories of three iconic celebrity chefs who are transforming the way we eat. This special highlights each chef's personal journey: how food helped celebrated chef Lidia Bastianich maintain her heritage after she immigrated to America; why food icon Ming Tsai raised a million dollars for Boston Marathon bombing victims; and why Presidential favorite Marcus Samuelsson is mentoring the next generation of chefs in Harlem. By focusing on inspiring human stories rather than recipes, the special indicates how food can be much more than nourishment. Host Allison Stewart conducts the intimate interviews, which include visits to special places that have helped shape the lives of each chef.
