This is a mini-series that began airing on Disney Channel in October 2007. The episodes are a few minutes in length, and would be shown during the breaks between the channel's programming. Each episode focuses on a particular food or type of food, and how it is traditionally prepared and eaten in various countries around the world; the main host is none other than Brenda Song (who by then had a very established name on the channel), with the other international hosts being stars of their respective countries' local branch of Disney Channel.
Out of all the mini-series that were shown on Disney Channel back when I still watched it, Pass the Plate was my favorite (Cars Toons and Brian O'Brian are close seconds). I would always feel a bit of delight when, during a break, I started hearing that pleasant, soft electric guitar music that would play at the beginning of each episode, because I knew then that an episode of Pass the Plate was starting. I found the series to be quite entertaining while also being informative, at least for a children's mini-series; seeing the familiar face of Brenda Song also contributed to my enjoyment of it. I recall that it was shown quite frequently throughout 2008 and 2009, and even a bit into the early 2010s, so for me, it will always be an important part of Ribbon Era (2007–2010) Disney Channel.
In 2013 the series was, apparently, redone with two kids from Jessie now serving as the hosts, but I don't really care about those episodes; they must have started airing after I stopped watching Disney Channel, as I don't remember seeing them at all. It is the original 10 Brenda Song episodes that I care about, as they are the ones I watched and re-watched almost daily as part of my Disney Channel experience.
Listed below are the original 10 Brenda Song episodes of Pass the Plate; the first 6 each visit a handful of countries per episode, whereas the later 4 (unfortunately) visit only 2 per episode. Even if you have never before seen these episodes and thus have no nostalgia for them, I would still urge you to watch them—each one is only a few minutes in length, and I genuinely think that you'll find them interesting.
