About the Show
Singer Barbra Streisand once offered him a job as her personal chef, while former US president George W Bush went into the kitchen to personally shake his hand.

In 2012, Edward Kwon packs up his charm and culinary skill in a single backpack for a trip of a lifetime in Life Inspired's brand new original production aptly called EdVentures in Asia!

This 13-episode series sees this former head chef of the Burj al-Arab in Dubai taking a road trip around Asia for one purpose: to create new dishes by infusing Korean elements into authentic Asian cuisine.

On his journey, Edward Kwon will visit some of Asia's best chefs and experience the myriad of tastes that they offer. He will hit locales from the well known to those off the beaten path and points in between. The adventurous chef will then use what he's seen and learnt to experiment with age-old recipes and add his personal touch to popular local dishes.

EdVentures in Asia presents an opportunity for the viewer to delve deeper into Asia's colourful culture through its cuisine as Chef Ed dissects ingredients and innovates new fusion dishes that represents Asia's taste as a whole. Join Edward in his adventures to Manila in the Philippines, Singapore, Jeonju in Korea, Nha Trang in Vietnam, Osaka in Japan, Hong Kong, Macau, Ulan Bator in Mongolia, Beijing in China, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, Bangkok in Thailand, Jakarta in Indonesia and Delhi in India.
