Unlike the fluffy romps that make up many culinary travel shows, this has real emotional gravitas as knowledgeable celebrity chefs Chinese-American Ken Hom and British- Taiwanese Ching-He Huang return to their ancestral homes. In this episode they explore the Sichuan province, known for its ultra-spicy food. It begins in Chengdu, one of the fastest-growing cities in the world. The hosts are visibly shocked by the city's progress. They explore, eat and cook at markets, restaurants and homes, and sample street food.
