More food on the box. Chef and restaurateur Sean Connolly, who runs two restaurants at Sydney’s Star City – Sean’s Kitchen and Astral, returns to SBS ONE with series two of My Family Feast this week.
Part cultural profile, part cooking show, My Family Feast centres around families who come together to eat, while celebrating their ethnic background.
“It’s such a privilege to be part of My Family Feast and filming the episodes in the second series has introduced me to new flavours and enticing recipes. We are very fortunate to be exposed to such culturally enriched cuisine in Australia thanks to the many different ethnic groups who call our country home,” says Connolly.
Episode One – The Indians
Bengali bride Shrabastee and her Punjabi groom Ankit represent the coming together of two traditional Indian families in the heart of Australia. Sean Connolly is invited to their wedding, which culminates in a colourful and opulent vegetarian feast. A week later, family and friends invite Sean to view photographs of the occasion and farewell their daughter who will now join her husband’s family. A banquet of traditional Indian dishes is prepared – a lamb and a fish curry, potato with spinach and poppy seeds, roti and sweets – and Sean learns the significance of these dishes to the young newlyweds.
It airs on Thursday June 24 at 7.30pm on SBS ONE.
