With a huge extended family scattered throughout Vietnam, Luke is inspired to learn that they all have one thing in common – a love for food. On his journey of Vietnam’s southern region, Luke travels from Saigon, through the Mekong Delta, and north along the coast to the World Heritage-listed city of Hoi An. Along the way, we meet many of Luke’s relatives, who share with him the secrets of Vietnamese cuisine, and help him discover the tiny cottage industries that have been creating vital ingredients for many centuries.
Acclaimed chef Luke Nguyen takes us on a culinary journey through the northern regions of Vietnam.
Luke ventures to greater Hanoi and learns how to make rice paper and pork terrine. He roasts a duck roadside and demonstrates a Vietnamese favourite, Pho Bo.
