The famed international chef and television host Martin Yan journeys deep into beautiful and mystical Yunnan, China and nearby regions.
Traveling by car and bus, on bicycles and, at times, the back of a trusty yak, Martin retraces part of the ancient Silk Road journey. He follows its twists and turns, making his way to small historical enclaves and cultural outposts.
Along the way, he meets scores of local people - minority tribe members who are generous with their stories, as well as their recipes.
