Summary Luke Nguyen's France follows Luke's latest journey as his appetite for food leads him out of Asia and into France, the culinary wonderland that shaped his ancestral home, Vietnam, and the lives of so many in his family. Experience a whole new world of French Vietnamese fusion food as Luke travels around France creating dishes that boast the richness of Gallic tradition with a fresh, modern Asian twist.Over ten half hour episodes, Luke ventures through the fascinating nation of France. Luke's love of food coupled with his disarming nature unearths a side to the French food culture and lifestyle that has rarely been seen on television. Local characters open their homes and share family recipes, fusing the taste of France with that of Spain, Africa and Vietnam.Luke experiences life and food on the Loire River before finishing his culinary journey through France in the seaside town of St Malo. Luke traps an eel with local fisherman Bruno before cooking up one of his signature dishes on Bruno's handmade houseboat. He spends his last night in the Loire cooking a rustic roast duck dish by an open fireplace. Heading to St Malo, a town of pirates and seafood delights, Luke catches giant crabs with local fisherman Gill. Tamarind is the ingredient that makes the crab dish so delicious. Over the provincial border in Normandy, where Mont Saint-Michel looms large, Luke shares his knowledge of salt marsh lambs. Back in St Malo he meets with larger-than-life character Jean Yves, a third generation butter specialist, and cooks a delicious scallop dish. Looking back at his wonderful experiences travelling through France, Luke muses: "If there is a more beautiful place on earth, I can't wait to see it!"
