A Cultural Culinary Experience
I have always wanted to do a cooking show because I love cooking so much, especially for my family and friends.
I also think that the food that I have grown up on is pretty special and it is infused with so much history and cultural and family stories that I have always thought that the merging of all these elements would make for a very different cooking show.
– Mitch Torres, Director & Presenter
In this series we will uncover the many family secret recipes that families will share with us…
…and the stories of how their cultural background has given rise to this unique cuisine and given it a special twist to which families own their own story of how they have come to have the special dishes handed down to them through the generations.
