Southeast Asia On A Plate



A melting pot of cultures, Southeast Asia is well known to be the globe’s food haven, boasting dishes imbued with rich flavours and culinary histories influenced by centuries worth of trade, migration and war.

The pursuit for precious spices and riches catalysed the spice trade, marking the advent of globalisation and international trade as early as the 14th century. How does this manifest in the well-loved dishes we have on our plates today?

Journey along with three different Southeast Asian chefs as they meander through bustling markets, rural communities and busy storefronts to delve deep into the complex and diverse food history of the region.
