I have been watching this show for a very long time but I never found Bengali/Bangladeshi cuisine on Food Safari. The show covers Indian, Pakistani and even Persian food but never Bengali or Bangladeshi cuisine. What is wrong Maeve?

Hi, I enjoyed Food Lovers' Guide to Australia's series 1,2,3,4,5. This was produced by Maeve O’Meara and Joanna Savill. Currently it is repeated on SBS TV. I wish they could produce DVDs of these series.
