Gary Rhodes takes a culinary trip to China accompanied by two passionate foodies handpicked because of their connection to the country. Peeling away any misconceptions they lift the lid on Chinese cuisine and reveal a plethora of surprises for the palate, from Drunken Chicken to steaming choi-sum.
Guided around the country by Chinese ex-pats, Gary and his two apprentices are looking to find the authentic dishes of China. Returning to the UK to cater for a major Chinese celebration banquet, they have a lot to learn!
From dim sum in Hong Kong, via the rice terraces of Yangshou, the Dragon Well tea plantations of Hangzhou and the noodle makers of Beijing, their trip goes beyond the simple Chinese take-away to reveal the true delights of China’s finest cuisine.
