New TV series explore the close connection between food, who we are and where our ancestors came from.
VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, August 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Filming of a new TV series that explores food and ancestry began in Barcelona and various other locations in Spain and France back in May 2017 by TV host and producer, Tammy-Lynn McNabb. After showcasing Health Wellness & Lifestyle TV at MIPTV in Cannes, France in 2017, and sharing with peers at the conference her desire to launch the new show, Tammy-Lynn and her team were inspired enough to immediately begin filming back in Europe the following month. The new show is a lifelong dream to bring food and cultural history together in a new and exciting show.
"I've been a long time user of ancestry websites to discover who I am and where my family is from. Being on one site for 10 years has given me so much history of who my family is and how they made their way to North America. In some cases, the struggles and sacrifices were amazing and truly admirable" says Tammy-Lynn, producer of several international TV shows. "In the past year, I joined another DNA site and it's been remarkable seeing surnames of people I'm related to from the 1700's show up in my family list of people alive today," she adds.
The journey of developing the new series began 4 years ago with the launch of her first TV program, Health Wellness & Lifestyle TV. Travelling the world and meeting people through food allowed her to discover the importance of food and heritage. "I come from a European and African American background. Ukranian, African American, Norwegian and French food have always been an important part of our family celebrations. Now that I know my ancestors more through all of the information I've discovered in my ancestry searches, I connect to these foods even more", she adds. Her recent journey to Paris, France this past May for filming had special meaning. She shares, "I've recently discovered that my French ancestors may have come to Canada as early as 1650. This past time in Paris, eating French food and speaking some of my broken French was super meaningful!", she says with enthusiasm, french coffee in hand. Tammy-Lynn's grandfather's lineage originates in Montreal with substantial documentation showing the migration from France to New France (Canada), before Canada was called Canada.
With additional filming taking place in Vancouver, Canada for the show, individuals with a desire to learn more about their family's history through food are encouraged to apply to be on the show.
