Padma Lakshmi is a Top Chef icon and the new host of Hulu's Taste the Nation, one of the most buzzed-about food-and-travel shows in recent memory. But in addition to having her face broadcast on T.V. sets across the country, Padma also wrote the book on global spices—literally. (Seriously. Go check out The Encyclopedia of Spices and Herbs right now).
In this episode of Fridge Tours, Padma forgoes the refrigerator in favor of the spice rack, giving First We Feast a sneak peak into her vast collection of spices, seasonings, and herbs. From her go-to madras sambar powder, to black Hawaiin lava salt, Padma leads us on a journey of international flavors from the comfort of her kitchen.
