Melvyn finds himself in seafood galore as he heads to Xiamen, China this week. He meets two different families- one living in a rustic fishing village and the other, the owner of a famous restaurant chain in Xiamen. Melvyn then brings his experiences together in a meal, which he specially prepares for his new friends. He puts his Chinese cooking skills to the test but how will his guests like his take on Fujian cuisine?
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.
