Episode one is an eye-opener, as Christine walks in the footsteps of some of the first Chinese immigrants in North America, revealing stories of luxurious early Cantonese restaurants and imported Chinese chefs and ingredients.  From its popularity in the Jewish communities of New York in the early 1900s to its 1950s resurfacing as something exotic and adventurous; from the mom and pop restaurants in virtually every small town on the continent to Asian fusion and ‘New Chinese’ produced by some of today’s hottest chefs, Christine finds it, eats it and attempts to break it down into bite-sized pieces for viewers.
