The Miami Episode of ‘No Passport Required’ Airs Tonight on PBS

Host Marcus Samuelsson visits Miami’s Haitian community

The fifth episode of No Passport Required, produced by Eater for PBS, airs tonight at 9/8c. In “Miami,” host Marcus Samuelsson heads to the Florida city to learn more about the Miami community’s history and food traditions.

At Miami restaurant Tap Tap, Samuelsson hears more about Haitian history and migration while eating griot with pickliz, grilled fish, legim, and more. Over pate kode, he learns about how the city of Miami and Little Haiti have changed over the years. Samuelsson also eats soursop ice cream at Lakay, plays a game of soccer followed by a snack of kremas and cookies, and makes a classic soup joumou and hears more about how this dish, once made by enslaved people for their masters, represents Haitian independence following the slave rebellion.
