Summary
Chinese cuisine has proved a successful export to the rest of the world's dinner tables - it has changed the way the modern world eats. And yet it has also played a hugely significant role as cultural "anchor" to the notion of authentic "Chinese-ness." This program explores the way food and cooking in Chinese cuisine has shaped and continues to affect the lives of people who have a distinct and intimate connection with its development and culture. Through historical anecdotes, contemporary stories of Chinese food connoisseurs, and glimpses into the daily lives of individuals whose passion for Chinese cuisine is staunch and unwavering, we take a closer look at one of the world's most popular and familiar cuisines.
