It is a trip of pure joy and excitement for a Filipino chef from Hawaii who has never set eyes on his ancestral home.
About Family Ingredients:
In the first season Family Ingredients introduced the world to our multicultural host and popular Hawaiʻi chef Ed Kenney, a man who prides himself on the nourishment of family, food and fun with a keen awareness of one’s responsibility for caring for our planet Earth, a home we share.
From telling the world about his love of poi (a Polynesian food staple and in Hawaiian belief, an ancestor of the Native Hawaiian people), his dedication to family and his curiousity to uncover untold stories through simple recipes shared by friends, the audience is served a treat filled with history, food and reflection in places like Tahiti, Okinawa, Japan, California and Puerto Rico. Along the way Ed discovers an appreciation of sharing stories to a global audience about our unique multicultural community.
The journey continues in Season Two with our curious Ed as our culinary guide who gathers a group of friends—both old and new—and follows them to their ancestral home. Ed is comfortable, caring and charismatic and the audience follows him joyfully on a path of revelation, inspiration and enlightenment. We learn how to blend ingredients to make a more delicious recipe – a metaphor on how multiculturalism strengthens us all.
