Jeffrey Saad returns to Cooking Channel to continue his hunt for the foods that unite America. In season one of United Tastes of America, Jeffrey tracked down the back stories on all-American  classics, like burgers, pizza and hot dogs. In season two, he goes further. In addition to the all-American favorites, he also explores dishes that were created and popularized on other shores but have been embraced by Americans.

Like tonight, when he kicks it all off with a look at sushi.
