About the #FamilyIngredients episode premiere

Ed Kenney continues his adventures, but this time with with Bravo’s Top Chef Fan Favorite Sheldon Simeon. Born and raised on the island of Hawaiʻi, Sheldon joins Ed in search of the original Pork Adobo recipe. The two chefs pack up and head to the Philippines. 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 #FamilyIngredients

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.

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.
