SEARCHING FOR FAMILIES WHO CELEBRATE
TWO DIFFERENT CULTURAL BACKGROUNDS!


DOES YOUR FAMILY LOVE COOKING & HAIL FROM TWO DIFFERENT CULTURAL BACKGROUNDS?  IS IT A CHALLENGE TO PLEASE EVERYONE’S TASTE BUDS?  
 
IF YOU ARE READY TO DISCOVER NEW WAYS TO COMBINE & CELEBRATE YOUR CULTURAL BACKGROUNDS THROUGH COOKING, AN AWARD-WINNING PRODUCTION COMPANY WANTS TO HEAR FROM YOU!

Has your family negotiated countless differences and co-mingled numerous traditions but can’t agree on food? We are working on a new television show about families who want to find foods that unite their very different cultures and are able to satisfy the whole family’s hunger. Most importantly, we are looking for families with strong traditions and stories that revolve around food (e.g. did your Persian rice survive the Iranian Revolution? Did your kugel come over with your bubby? Do you still serve your abuela’s mole?).

To be considered—or to nominate others—please write to us at culturaldishescasting@gmail.com with the following information:

·      Names, ages & occupations of everyone in your household.  Please include a few [non-returnable] photographs, if possible.
·      City and state of residence.  Tell us about your hometown.
·      Brief family bio, including the different cultures and traditions upheld in your household.
·      Brief description of your family’s passion for cooking. Please also mention any dishes that you enjoy cooking together & separately—specifically, any which draw upon your family’s unique cultural background(s).
·      Interesting stories or facts about your family that relate to food (e.g. stories about how a certain dish helped your family to get through a difficult time, recipes that have been in the family for generations, inventive ways of gathering ingredients, unique ways food is used and/or served in your family, etc.).
