The best meals aren't just about Michelin stars and vintage Champagne. No matter where these celebrity chefs' careers have taken them, they're always hungry for the flavors of home.

Chefs John Besh, George Mendes, Andrew Zimmern, Marcus Samuelsson, Michael Chiarello, Angelo Sosa, Richard Blais and Sang Yoon talk about the influences their families and cultural ties have had on the way they cook today.

Food says so much about where you’ve come from, where you’ve decided to go, and the lessons you’ve learned. It’s geography, politics, tradition, belief and so much more and this week, we invite you to dig in and discover the rich, ever-evolving taste of America in 2011. The week will culminate with a Secret Supper in New York City, and Eatocracy invites you to participate online starting Monday July 11th at 6:30 p.m. E.T.
