LUCKY CHOW
Bay Area’s Pacific Rim Cuisine

 

THE BAY AREA’S PACIFIC RIM CUISINE, as personified by Google
, The Bay Area is perhaps the most Asian of any population outside of Asia. We visit the world headquarters for Google, which was founded in Silicon Valley in the South Bay city of Mountain View. Where “peach” orchards ran abundant just a generation ago, “Apple” (Computers) are now dominating and disrupting how the world functions. We meet with Olivia Wu, who designed the original Asian restaurant concepts “on campus”, including the home-style “Jia”, which remains one of the most popular restaurants on campus. We go behind the scenes with Baadal, Google’s first “sit-down” restaurant, which happens to be Indian, as we participate in the assembly line process that churns out 2,000 servings of the Indian fried rice dish, “Biryani” on “Biryani Fridays”. Driving away from Google, we visit some of their purveyors, who epitomize the ethos of the Bay Area food culture – which is local, seasonal and sustainable. We visit two retired Japanese semiconductor executives, who have constructed an indoor, vertical farm called Ecopia – which not only services some of the top restaurants in the Bay Area, but also uses a mere 3% of water vs traditional farming techniques, as they seek to redefine farming culture in the midst of global warming. After a career in Silicon Valley running Fortune 500 companies, they are returning to their original immigrant roots as farmers, right here before Silicon Valley was birthed. We end the episode at Hodo Soy Beanery, which started out making artisanal tofu products for a handful and has now proliferated into the mainstream just as Asian food products and palates have gone mainstream.

 

A Few Good Pie Places

 

Come along on a tour of fruity and creamy pie shops from New York to Montana. Meet the bakers who know how to make dough, add spices to fillings and crisscross a lattice top. Classic apple pies abound, but there is also cherry, blueberry, fluffy coconut cream, cherry lattice and sweet potato.

Filipinos comprise the second-largest Asian American population nationwide, yet their cuisine is relatively unknown. PJ Quesada, founder of the Filipino Food Movement, explains Filipino cuisine while feasting at his friend Tim Luym’s restaurant in San Mateo, CA. Then we meet restaurateur Nicole Ponseca, who left her life as an advertising executive in New York to give voice to her culture through food. Finally, the two friends behind Bling Bling Dumplings manufacture thousands of dumplings – from scratch, at home – to serve at festivals.

 

THE MIND OF A CHEF
Fire

 

Chef David Kinch has forged a distinctive culinary path, putting him at the forefront of new contemporary California cuisine with his restaurant Manresa. Influenced by French and modern Catalan cooking, Kinch finds inspiration from European traditions and refinement, American ingenuity and the bounty California offers. His pursuit of exceptional products inspired an exclusive partnership with Love Apple Farms, where most ingredients for Manresa are grown. For nine consecutive years, Manresa has held two Michelin stars. Following a fire in 2014, Manresa reopened in 2015, receiving a four-star review from the San Francisco Chronicle. His first cookbook, Manresa: An Edible Reflection, debuted in October 2013 and was nominated for the James Beard Foundation “Cooking from a Professional Point of View” award.

 

Fire
Join Chef David Kinch as he explores how a devastating restaurant fire changed and improved him. He also prepares some dishes that came out of that challenging period of his life, with one of them being a new signature dish.
