MasterChef runner-up Genevieve Lee became intrigued with the diverse flavours of Singapore's food culture after participating in the hit TV cooking competition. But when she realises that she knows little of her own Hainanese food heritage, she sets off on a journey to retrace her culinary roots. As she uncovers the stories behind iconic dishes like Hainanese Pork Chop and Hainanese Curry, she learns of a history that is caught up with the British and Peranakans in Singapore. But the few traditional dishes of her ancestors that still remain, like Yi Bua and Hainanese Herbal Mutton Soup, are facing an uncertain future here. Armed with her grandfather's 30-year-old recipe, Gen makes a bold move to preserve her family's legacy for a contemporary audience. Our food tells us incredible stories of how we lived, fought and survived. Join 5 personalities as they embark on a journey to discover their past through the traditional food that they loved.
