Rick Stein's Tastes Of Shanghai

Rick Stein’s latest food adventure takes him to one of the biggest cities in the world as he finds out whether Shanghai, having almost doubled in size over the last 20 years, has managed to hang on to its culinary roots.

Proving there’s more to Chinese food than the tried and tested familiar takeaway favourites, he shares new recipes for the delicious Shanghainese dishes he discovers during his exploration of the city and its coastal suburbs.

From an ordinary family home, through the back streets with their fast food cooks and their flaming woks, to soup dumpling joints and eventually to the most glitzy restaurant, Rick gets a real sense of what food means to the residents of this massive city.

Rick Stein’s Tastes Of Shanghai screens Thursday, 20 April at 8.35pm.
