About the show:

As Asian societies hurtle towards urbanisation and modernisation, the chase for greater convenience, speed and efficiency never ends. Where then, does that leave our tradtional culinary heirlooms? Century-old dishes that demand time and patience, yet trigger collective memories of delight, and espouse the wisdom of health and nutrition. Aun Koh, better known for his moniker, Chubby Hubby, and one of Singapore’s foremost food bloggers, tracks down the guardians of these disappearing recipes. He uncovers the stories behind our changing food culture, as he learns to cook these dishes. Through creativity, Aun pays homage to these traditions by giving the foods a modern twist - entrenching them not only in history, but also in the here and now.
