Slumfood Millionaire: Provinces

Episodic Information


We’re back with another season of Slumfood Millionaire, with more talented cooks from slums living in the provinces of Asia. And they’re here to show us that you don’t need a lot of money to make the most delectable dishes.

Chicken heads and feet are made into finger-licking snacks. Brains and offal are transformed into the most savoury dips. Humble vegetables form the backbone of spicy stir-fries full of umami.

Foraging, catching or making do with the cheapest cuts, these amazing cooks are creating mouth-watering, unique dishes inspired by provincial flavours and their memories of home and childhood. 

Not only are they sharing their recipes, they are also sharing a slice of their lives and who they are.

From forest longhouses to floating villages; in neighbourhoods built on steep slopes or on stilts; we reveal their heartwarming stories and discover the food economy that ensures affordable, bountiful meals are enjoyed, even with the most limited ingredients.
