‘Recipe Lost & Found’ on Magnolia Network helps families connect with their history and lost recipes.

Magnolia Network’s Recipe Lost & Found is unlike any other cooking show we’ve seen. As opposed to delivering a competitive aspect, the series takes a deep dive into family history and allows people to retrieve lost recipes.

In the Season 1 trailer, Casey can be seen connecting with individuals from different cultural backgrounds. The goal is to find out as much information as possible about a family’s loved one in order to decipher how they can create said family recipe in their likeness.

“I need to know who your grandmother was and what her history was … where she came from …what ingredients she might have used and when,” Casey says.

In the trailer, Casey can be seen working to create a "Nigerian-Jewish matzo ball soup," a chicken schmaltz, and a mouthwatering chicken recipe. Throughout the experience, Casey is able to showcase her culinary skills while helping individuals have a deeper connection with their family history.

“These recipes are a combination of the family's roots, what they have had access to over the years, and how their descendants have eaten and modified it,” Casey told Parade in July 2022. “I think it's fascinating to see how unique recipes can be from family to family, and yet, how they represent the culinary history of humanity as a whole."

Catch the premiere of Recipe Lost & Found on Discovery Plus on Aug. 5, 2022. You can also stream episodes on Magnolia Network's website.
