With 186 shows to date over the last 13 years , Chef Tang, with his ever humorous, charming charisma takes his viewers on a journey to exotic and fascinating countries with a quick study of their History, Culture, Points of Interest and, of course, all things Culinary.  A most familiar face to PBS viewers nationwide, in this upcoming series he cooks and travels his way across his beloved Thailand, proudly featuring “ THE ELEPHANT BUFFET AND ROUND-UP,” a truly amazing sight with these nationally treasured animals feasting from the most elaborate buffet imaginable, before performing for an audience of thousands.  Then there is the magical FLOATING LANTERN FESTIVAL, part of the Loy Kratong celebration which pays homage to the WATER, crucial to, among other things, growing THAI HOM MALI RICE, commonly referred to as “the earth’s best and most fragrant rice.”

With all cooking segments done on location, chef Tang prepares many rice dishes throughout his series, as well as many traditional and non-traditional Thai recipes, never forgetting the fact that he is speaking to his longtime, loyal audience in the U.S. and Canada with recipes they will appreciate, given Chef Tang’s usual creative twist to adapt to the Western palate, something he has long been famous for since he brought the Thai food movement to the U.S. in the late ‘70s.
 
The new look and sound of this series, shot in HD, is a true collaborative effort with Tang bringing in Adam Litwinski of Post Apocalypse as both director and editor, some of whose credits include the three-time award-winning documentary, “A Necessary Journey,” Columbia, Def Jam and Virgin Records, Motown’s Urban Box Office Network, American Education Institute, NFL Films and Infinity Motors.
