Portuguese Feast of the Blessed Sacrament

Since 1915, New Bedford, Massachusetts, has celebrated the rich culture of its Portuguese community. In this episode of Fest-A-Nation, tag along with host Emma Green as she eats her way from bacalhau to beef, sipping Madeira and learning folkloric dance. Hit the streets, tents and pavilions with Emma as she eats, drinks and dances her way through festivals that celebrate and preserve international cultures far from home. The self-described “Martha Stewart meets MacGyver of all things food, wine and travel,” Emma Green asks the questions you would ask if you were there and gets the answers with her ever-present smile.
