The first story features an African-American wedding in New Orleans, complete with marching brass band and traditional regional cuisine that includes jambalaya, crawfish and pralines. An Indian-American wedding features actor Mario Cantone, well-known for his role as a wedding planner on TV's "Sex and the City," and Indian actress and food writer Madhur Jaffrey, who will teach Lidia and the audience about classic Indian wedding dishes, including tandoori specials, seafood kebabs and a variety of Indian breads. The third wedding features a Korean-American wedding with celebrity fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi, who creates a special outfit for Lidia to wear to the wedding. "Survivor" winner and host of AMERICA REVEALED, Yul Kwon, adds commentary and perspective on Korean culture. The final wedding in the program examines the marriage of two cultures -- Irish-American and Italian-American, with music and food from each represented. Written by Anonymous See less
