Do not watch this show on an empty stomach.

YOMYOMF's unscripted series 'Family Style' offers a lively look at Asian food.

Family Style is a 12-episode unscripted food and travel series that offers a lively look at not just Asian food, but the traditions, culture and backstory of the food and the dish that's brought to the table. Shot in Vietnam, China and the Philippines as well as Hawaii and Los Angeles, the series is produced by Stage 13 and YOMYOMF.

The series is led by the Foodie Fam -- eight talented friends bound together by their knowledge and love for culture, cuisine and sharing family moments around the table. The cast includes Stacy Fan, Lana McKissack, Gilbert Galon, Arvin Lee, Anthony Ma, Oates Wu and Sujata Day.

Highlights of the first season include a visit to the Night Markets of Saigon, Singapore and the San Gabriel Valley; how to make Kare Kare, the Philippines' revered hearty stew; the legend of the Pork Highway in Oahu; Sri Lankan, Indian, Japanese, Korean and Burmese cuisine and more.

And hey, I appear in this week's episode, "What's Authentic." Jeff Yang and I tackle issues of appropriation vs. appreciation with chef Nguyen Tran and host Stacy Fan. And most importantly, we get to eat.

Watch Family Style on Stage13.com, YouTube and Facebook Watch. New episodes premiere twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays with the season ending the week of June 17.
