This week, Melvyn stops over in Hanoi, Vietnam. The capital of the nation, Hanoi boasts more than 1000 years of history. Along with that, comes a long-standing history of traditional cuisine with many famous delicacies.
Melvyn visits a Vietnamese rice farmer, where he experiences a typical Vietnamese home cooking. Then he hangs out with a culinary artisan who has been living in the city for many generations and learns what it takes to cook an authentic Hanoi cuisine.
Then, rich Vietnamese family meets rural farmer folks at a special meal, which Melvyn personally cooks. How will this strange combination turn out?
Hosted by a funky chef, Melvyn Lee, this unusual food and travel show tells us everything we do not know about the cities through the very private kitchens of 2 different families.
Each week, Melvyn travels and arrives at a different city. Within the span of 3 days, He befriends 2 vastly distinct local families. Melvyn’s mission is to learn the culture and cuisine of these different social groups. At the end of each program, inspired by what he has learned, Melvyn will prepare a special meal for his newfound friends and culinary masters.
