This week, Melvyn finds himself in South Korea. He experiences two distinctly different cultures and cuisines of the country- that of the royalties and the monks. He meets royal food expert to learn about the imperial traditions and cuisines, which had influenced so much of Korea. Then Melvyn goes zen with a famous Korean monk. Royal meets spiritual at the end of his journey, as Melvyn brings both parties together for a special meal he personally cooks.
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.
