- Program Description
This episode features four very different weddings: an African-American wedding in New Orleans complete with marching brass band and traditional regional cuisine; an Asian Indian-American wedding featuring Mario Cantone (who played a wedding planner in TVs "Sex and the City") and Indian actress and food writer Madhur Jaffrey who teaches Lidia about the classic Indian wedding dishes; a Korean-American wedding with celebrity fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi, who creates a special outfit for Lidia to wear to this wedding, with added commentary and perspective on Korean culture from "Survivor" winner and PBS host of "America Revealed," Yul Kwon; and a wedding between an Irish-American and an Italian-American, which is a classic mix of Irish and Italian cultures with music and food from each.
