Melvyn’s culinary journey culminates to a homecoming this week- Singapore. In this city where he grew up, Melvyn hopes to rediscover the history and culture through two very important groups of Singaporeans- the Peranakans and the Eurasians. They represent the multi-ethnic past and present of the nation.
Entering their homes, and learning all about their cuisine and culture, Melvyn will finally prepare a meal for these 2 families- a sumptuous gourmet dinner inspired by both the Peranakan and Eurasians. Will what he has learnt so far be finally put to a real test?
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.
