Danielle gets back to her roots in an episode devoted to the distinctive, rustic cuisine of Taiwan. WIth Cathy Erway, author of "Foods of Taiwan," she hits a Chinatown market and then makes the island's most famous dish, beef noodle soup. At Taiwan Bear House, started by homesick young expats, she tries a New York take on the box lunches known as biandang. And in California's Orange County, she pays a twilight visit to America's closest counterpart to a classic Taiwanese night market.
LUCKY CHOW travels across the United States to explore Asian cuisine's impact on American food culture. The un-hosted six-part series explores a wide variety of Asian food and drink — from a famous Japanese noodle dish to Korean kimchi to Chinese fusion — while meeting the new generation of chefs and entrepreneurs dedicated to keeping the traditions alive.
