Planning my latest foodie adventure - Malaysia Here I Come!

Well, I am off again! This time to South East Asia, Malaysia to be precise! I am getting quite excited as this will be my first experience in this part of the World. Thanks to the internet and supplied pamphlets and books from all over, I am learning as much as I can about this new destination. I expect it to be very hot! I also expect Malaysia to be very exotic to what I am accustomed to.  I am especially excited because, I have heard that the food is incredible! So keeping my fingers crossed! I hope that I can find the best that Malaysia has to offer in terms of food, people and culture.  To get myself in the right frame of mind and to share a bit of where I am heading I present to you Gordon's Great Escape - Malaysia.  Thanks to Optomen International and Youtube for the video feeds.  Have a great day!

Gordon's Great Escape - Malaysia - Part 3/3

In the TV series, Gordon’s Great Escape we see Gordon Ramsay leave his hectic professional life behind him as he embarks on a pilgrimage for fresh flavours and new inspiration. Gordon goes back on the road doing what he loves most: searching out the best food in the world and testing himself in extreme and demanding situations. This time he’s not just taking on one country, his appetite for adventure will take him through four of South East Asia’s most exciting culinary destinations: Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia and Vietnam. South East Asia is a region obsessed with food and its people are almost always found eating, cooking or discussing fresh food. Gordon loves Thai and Vietnamese food and he’s heard great things about Cambodian and Malaysian cooking so he’s eager to immerse himself in local culinary traditions. As he explores the different regions, Gordon will be inspired to cook and eat things he’s never come across before. And there's plenty to be inspired by: no other corner of the world boasts such an enormous diversity of cuisine and culture.
We’ll see Gordon speeding through breath-taking gorges on wooden fishing boats, sleeping on the floor in Buddhist monasteries, struggling through the throng of the world’s busiest markets and waterways, and revitalizing his passion for simple, honest cookery and unforgettable flavours.
These are adventures that will change the way Gordon, and viewers, think about Indian and South East Asian food forever. courtesy of Optomen Internation website
