- Program Description
Welcome to China, the world's oldest continuing civilization, where the unbreakable bond of food, culture, and history is the subject of legends. Straddled between old and new, the country strives to preserve ancient food traditions, while satisfying a hungry middle class with modern techniques and trendy restaurants. From the rural countryside to the urban epicenters of Beijing and Shanghai, we'll explore Chinese cuisine in its authentic form. One thing is for certain: it's much more than Kung Pao Chicken or Moo Goo Gai Pan.
