Season 1, Episode 6

East Meets West

Rachel explores London's love affair with the east and reflects how this mirrors her own European and Asian family mix; her Austrian mum and Malaysian dad - so this time the food in her kitchen is a celebration of east meets west.... She revives a favourite childhood tradition with some friends, as they pick out lunch from Dim Sum trollies in China Town and discovers the skill behind her favourite dish; and she joins Andrew, a young chef in west London, who teaches her a spectacular noodle pulling technique... Back in her kitchen Rachel shows us how to use up the leftover meat from the roast in an Asian bun, makes her favourite Malaysian dessert with a traditional British twist and cooks an intensely flavoured chicken dish from her mum that captures the fusion of east meets west.
