Despite popular belief ‘spicy’ in Chinese cuisines is not always hot! In various Chinese cuisines, spices are complex and varied. Chef Christine visits the Malaysian island of Penang, a location historically important to the story of spice trade with TV celebrity Chef Wan for a fun and fact filled visit to the Tropical Spice Garden. At a picturesque mountain top plantation, they pick nutmeg and discover the unique uses of the fruit/spice particular only to this Malaysian island. But in South East Asia Chef Cushing knows that a ‘hot pepper spice’ is inevitable and she finds it at Sir Trat a trendy new Bangkok restaurant and in Singapore where she discovers that when it comes to chilli crab; it’s all about the spice!
