Season Two

Luke Nguyen, acclaimed owner and chef of Sydney restaurant Red Lantern, returns to the country of his heritage – this time to take a culinary journey through the northern regions of Vietnam. Starting in Hue, Luke travels through the country’s spectacular northern countryside, visiting the natural wonders of Ha Long Bay; stopping at the bustling and French-inspired Hanoi; and making his way to the beautiful mountains of Sapa. Along the way, he prepares dishes in locations that represent an authentic Vietnam – in all its chaotic vibrancy.

Season One

With a huge extended family scattered throughout Vietnam, Luke is inspired to learn that they all have one thing in common – a love for food. On our journey of Vietnam's southern region, we travel from Saigon, through the Mekong Delta, and north along the coast to the World Heritage-listed city of Hoi An. Along the way, we meet many of Luke’s relatives, who share with him the secrets of Vietnamese cuisine, and help him discover the tiny cottage industries that have been creating vital ingredients for many centuries.
