Shane Delia is kicking off SBS’ mouth-watering year of food this January with a brand new series that takes the Melbourne Chef outside the kitchen and into his community, carrying out a mission to improve the health of his kids, his community and his customers, one meal at a time.

Produced by EQ Media for SBS, this eight-part series is a chance for audiences to get a very different insight into Shane’s life, business and family as he lives and breathes his life motto – Strength through Hospitality. After three hugely successful series of Spice Journey, Recipe for Life has the same curious energy and charismatic host Australians love with honest local stories and new recipes.

There’s nothing more important to Shane than family – he still shares Monday night dinners with his extended family each week – and with his children Jayda and Jude in their early years of schooling Shane is embarking on a brand new venture to educate kids on the importance of eating well. Feed the Mind will see Shane faced with the formidable challenge of bringing healthy, tasty, affordable food into the tuckshop, so he’s enlisted the kitchen garden guru herself, Stephanie Alexander, to lend a helping hand!

Shane Delia’s Recipe for Life airs 8pm Thursdays on SBS starting January 11 and is available on SBS on Demand.
