Top British TV chef Antony Worrall Thompson embarks on his most ambitious culinary adventure, this time exploring Brunei Darussalam, a tiny kingdom in Southeast Asia.

Nicknamed the ˜Venice of the East, Brunei is immensely rich in culture, heritage and traditional Malay cuisine. Worrall Thompson travels around the exotic sultanate, delving into its colourful and aromatic markets, joining up with local experts who introduce him to their produce and delicacies, and learning how to make home-grown dishes from recipes handed down through the generations. He makes a dramatic journey through the muddy coastal waters and mangrove swamps of the Brunei River, visiting water villages and houses on stilts, and takes a scary boat trip up through rapids into the Borneo Temburong rain forest.

The adventurous chef also goes to a local Brunei fish farm to source prawns and tilapia for a dish that he cooks on a floating hut in the middle of a river in the croc infested jungle, and he is even invited to take the Sultan of Bruneis private aircraft for a spin over his oil fields.

The programme ends with Worrall Thompson joining up with World Café Asia TV chef Bobby Chinn. As the two cook together besides the South China Sea, they are given a traditional music farewell from a Brunei band.
