Adam Liaw dives deeply into a personal story of Singaporean cuisine and culture
Over 5 weeks, Adam Liaw goes on a journey of food discovery like no other across the length and breadth of the Asian food mecca of Singapore. From specialty hawker stalls that have been handed down through generations, to some of the finest 5-star restaurants on the planet featuring the likes of Michelin-starred chef Guy Martin and even Australia’s own chef Tetsuya, Adam leaves no stone unturned in his quest to share with us the very best flavours the country has to offer.
For Adam, this journey is also personal, as he discovers long-held secrets about his family ancestry, and also takes on one of the biggest pressure-cooker challenges of his career.
In the final episode, the Australian High Commissioner and the cream of Singapore’s food scene gather at one of the city’s finest hotels to sample a 5-course fine dining menu which must interpret the essence of the Singapore that he’s experienced. Can Adam pull off the meal of the century?
