My Family Feast is an Australian television program hosted by chef Sean Connolly. The show first screened on SBS in 2009 and features the lives and cooking traditions of Australian immigrants and their families.
The show is partly a cultural profile and partly a cooking show. Australians with diverse ethnic backgrounds invite Connolly into their homes, introduce him to their families, share cultural traditions and show how to cook a family feast with recipes and techniques that have been lovingly passed from generation to generation.
Sean Connolly was born in the United Kingdom. He started his chef’s apprenticeship at the Pennine Hilton, Ainley Top in Huddersfield. After continuing his apprenticeship in various restaurants throughout the UK, he arrived in Australia in 1988 on a working holiday and fell in love with the local weather, produce and burgeoning food scene. After various sous chef roles, he was appointed to Sydney's Astral restaurant in 1995. In 2008, he was named the Sydney Morning Herald 'Chef of the Year' and opened his second restaurant, Sean’s Kitchen.
My Family Feast has received recognition locally and internationally for its unique format and spin on the cooking genre.
