Above: Host Danielle Chang travels around China’s Hangzhou region with Dai Jianjun of Dragon’s Well Manor and to Sang Lee Farms in New York’s North Fork to see how widespread this movement to keep things local really is.

It isn’t just recipes that get imported and exported between the East and West, but also food practices. The farm to table movement is not at all uniquely American.
