Summary Award-winning chef Sean Connolly is back with more episodes of the popular My Family Feast - a celebration of food, family and stories of life.My Family Feast is about families and food.Food is the central theme that brings families and communities together and this new series defines a family as a group of people who come together to eat, to talk, to have fun and to support each other: A group of people who are very often in a strange land trying to retain their traditional culture and to live and understand a new culture. Inevitably the cultures combine and adapt in sometimes most surprising ways. The show focuses on one family per episode, allowing an in-depth view of each individual culture and food.Members of the entire family - grandmothers, grandfathers, aunts, uncles and second cousins - are involved, allowing Connolly to gain a complete insight into their particular immigrant experience, be they first, second or seventh generation Australians. As the viewers learn a new recipe, they also discover the stories and traditions behind its history.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.
